2023 Old Borough Cup Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 09 September 2023

There are lots of potential winners of the Old Borough Cup Handicap, with William Haggas having a number of runners against the field. This includes Naqeeb who goes off favourite to claim a victory, while Lordship and Post Impressionist are also part of the same stable and the handler could well deliver the winner.

Aztec Empire has run many times for trainer Andrew Balding, with Caius Chorister looking to secure a first win this season after five failed attempts. Forza Orta goes off at a bigger price for trainer Kevin Ryan, with Adjuvant travelling for Michael Bell and this looks like a good each-way betting price for the Class 2 encounter.

2023 Old Borough Cup Handicap Tips

There are seventeen runners who are participating in the Old Borough Cup Handicap, with Naqeeb going for trainer William Haggas. The horse has the highest rating out of any race and the three-year-old could be favourably weighted and the racing betting odds mean that you can have a slice of the action from an each-way point-of-view.

Aztec Empire won on his first outing this season but has failed to land a victory in any of the previous five renewals. Andrew Balding will hope that the barren run ends when his charge lines up here, with the four-year-old second at York last time out. Interestingly, the horse that won this race was Forza Orta who runs at a big price here.

There was plenty to like about the win in the Sky Bet Stayers Handicap, with the horse beating Aztec Empire by a neck. Previously, the same runner finished second in a handicap race at Hamilton, with Caius Chorister having finished sixth out of twenty-two runners and the horse was sent off at 22/1 on that occasion.

Lordship is a talented three-year-old who could also go well and the runner finished fourth in the Melrose Handicap over one mile and six furlongs at York Racecourse. Previously to this, there were wins at Haydock and Yarmouth, with the former victory coming in the bet365 Handicap before a handicap win in Norfolk.

The Old Borough Cup is a horse race that takes place at Haydock Park on an annual basis. The encounter takes place every September and it’s a National Hunt race which is a class two handicap. You can expect the runners and riders to navigate their way around a course which measures a distance of one mile and six furlongs.

Island Brave was the 2022 Old Borough Cup winner, with this being the only eight-year-old winner in the past ten years. Previously to this, we saw two seven-year-old winners land a victory, with Island Brave obliging in 2021 before retaining his crown. There was also Euchen Glen who was able to oblige at the same age in 2020.

Trainer Mark Johnston has been able to win this Haydock betting race on four occasions, with The Persuader helping the Scottish handler break his duck in 2003. Peppertree Lane then helped him achieve a second success three years later before Yes Mr President (2009) and Sir Graham Wade (2011) was able to get the jobs done.
