2022 Lillie Langtry Stakes Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Saturday, 30 July 2022

We all know that the Glorious Goodwood racing festival is one of the biggest Flat UK horse racing meetings in the United Kingdom, with the five-day affair featuring a number of high-profile events and this includes the Lillie Langtry Stakes which is a relatively new renewal which attracts a number of star names.

This Group 2 race first took place in 2003 and this takes place over a distance of one mile and six furlongs. The purse is not as attractive as other races although there is a fair amount of prestige to the renewal and we have seen some spectacular renewals over the past couple of decades.

Who Are the Favourites for 2021 Lillie Langtry Stakes?

Albaflora is the favourite to win the one mile and six furlongs encounter, with Ralph Beckett training a horse that finished fifth in the recent Hardwicke Stakes and there has been money for the runner to improve on that performance and get among the places next time around.

Wonderful Tonight has three consecutive victories to her name at the time of writing, with a win in the Qatar Prix de Royallieu coming at the beginning of October before another impressive victory in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot.

Valia is a French-trained horse with a lot of class and the four-year-old’s form in France has been seriously impressive, with a runner-up spot in the Prix Vicomtesse Vigier being an eye-catching first outing during the 2021 season after an impressive time of things last year including second place to Subjectivist in the Prix Royal-Oak.

The History of the Lillie Langtry Stakes

Enbihaar is the latest horse to have claimed a victory in 2019 and 2020, with John Gosden having trained the runner to wins which make her the most successful horse compared to Tartouche and Wild Coco, while there have also been some excellent jockey performances in this race.

The first winner of the Lillie Langtry Stakes was Moments Of Joy, with Rae Guest training the horse to success who was ridden by Seb Sanders, while this rider then scored a double on board Tartouche and that was excellent for trainer Lady Herries.

Sir Henry Cecil and Lady Cecil presided over the back-to-back victories for Wild Coco, with Tom Queally on board for both of these successes in 2012 and 2013, with the race having previously been described as the Gladness Stakes which was promoted to Group 2 status in 2020.
