2023 Prestige Fillies Stakes Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Saturday, 26 August 2023

The William Hill Prestige Fillies' Stakes could feature as many as twelve runners when the fillies line up at Goodwood Racecourse on Saturday, with Shuwari heading the betting market. It’s easy to see why the Ollie Sangster-trained runner is likely to be a warm order, with Kieran Shoemark on board a horse who has the highest rating.

However, these fillies are all relatively lightly-raced and Carla’s Way looks like an interesting candidate at a more backable each-way price. Darnation was also successful last time out and could go well for trainer K R Burke, while Pretty Crystal and Dazzling Star could also have a part to play in this seven furlong encounter.

2023 William Hill Prestige Fillies' Stakes Tips

We’re looking forward to the dozen runners and riders competing in the 2023 William Hill Prestige Fillies' Stakes, with Shuwari looking to build on successive victories and this two-year-old looks like the one to beat. She opened her account on 27 June with a win in the EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Newbury over seven furlongs.

Better was to come when she obliged with a win in the European Bloodstock News EBF Star Stakes at Sandown Park and this was a listed race. However, Carla’s Way can’t be discounted despite finishing well down the order in her previous encounter. We should bear in mind that this eighth-placed finish was in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Therefore, the two-year-old might benefit in a less competitive race, with the Simon & Ed Crisford-trained charge having a similar rating to the market leader. The same applies to Pretty Crystal who has had three outings so far this season. In the recent Bateaux London Princess Margaret Stakes, the horse finished second behind Sacred Angel.

That came after a fifth-placed finish in the Albany Stakes where the horse caused a stir to finish higher up the order than expected considering she was priced at 33/1. Darnation is another interesting contender and the horse shone to achieve a victory in the Sky Bet Go-Racing-In-Yorkshire Summer Festival British EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes.
