2023 John of Gaunt Stakes Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 10 June 2023

While Aldaary is the betting favourite to land a victory in the 2023 John Of Gaunt Stakes, there are several horses with a lively chance of finishing first. The five-year-old certainly has claims and trainer William Haggas will be confident, although Angel Bleu is trading at a slightly bigger price and Ralph Beckett will have high hopes for his four-year-old.

Jumby was underwhelming last time out, although the Eve Johnson Houghton-trained charge is among the betting favourites, with El Caballo a four-year-old with strong claims and the same can be said of The Astrologist. With nine runners set to go to post, there are going to be some favourable each-way terms and also price boosts.

2023 John Of Gaunt Stakes Tips

Aldaary has produced some impressive performances during his career although a lengthy absence away from the track means that we can’t be completely sure of how the horse will perform. The five-year-old was last seen winning the 2022 Spring Trophy Stakes at Haydock Park, with the horse having won the Balmoral Handicap over one mile.

Angel Bleu has a strong chance of securing a success, with Ralph Beckett training a runner who was victorious last time out. The horse won in mid-May when scoring at Haydock Park, with this being another Spring Trophy Stakes win although this was the 2023 renewal and we will therefore see the previous two winners of this race lining up.

Jumby was out of his depth at betting odds of 50/1 when running in the Lockinge Stakes, with the seven furlong potentially more to the horse’s liking. It’s been five races without a victory for this runner, with El Caballo also bidding to return to the winners’ enclosure. There were off-colour showings at Ascot and Doncaster after a previous succession of wins.

The Astrologist finished well down the order in the Duke of York Clipper Stakes although perhaps the horse has each-way claims for this weekend encounter, while the horse was an impressive second in the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan Racecourse and there could be a strong performance from a horse who should be suited by the going and distance.
