2023 Lillie Langtry Stakes Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Saturday, 05 August 2023

There hasn’t been too many criticisms of Free Wind so far when it comes to her horse racing career. It will be interesting to see whether the John Gosden-trained filly is able to oblige over one mile and six furlongs, with the four-year-old having to carry more weight than the majority of her contenders.

Weight could be a telling factor over this distance, with Sea La Rosa, Princess Zoe and Believe In Love all off the same weight mark, while Lily Pond an untested three-year-old who could be a lively outside contender who runs for legendary trainer Aidan O’Brien.

2022 Lillie Langtry Stakes Tips

At betting odds of around 6/4, many people will regard Free Wind as one of their Glorious Goodwood bankers. The John Gosden-trained runner has achieved some notable wins during her career and it will be interesting to see if any horse can get the better of a contender who won the bet365 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock Park.

That victory was achieved by over two lengths and Robert Havlin was able to steer the horse home over one mile and four furlongs. Previously to this, Frankie Dettori was on board when landing the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster Racecourse, with that being an eye-catching seven length win.

Sea La Rosa will go up against Free Wind and needs to find over two lengths to frank the form between the pair, with William Haggas hoping that the weight allowance is going to swing the pendulum in his favour. A win in the Betfred Pinnacle Stakes as the 9/4 betting favourite indicates that the horse is a major player.

Princess Zoe is the other horse trading at single figures, although don’t be surprised if we see Lily Pond get among the places. The three-year-old was able to win on the all-weather at Dundalk and the horse has been working her way upwards since then.

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.
