2023 Silver Bowl Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 27 May 2023

Covey and Local Dynasty are the first two in the betting for the Betfred Silver Bowl Handicap although this isn’t a two-horse race and we’re looking at the bigger-priced runners from an each-way betting point-of-view. Age Of Kings runs for trainer Aidan O’Brien and should be well suited to the one mile trip, with Gincident another lively runner.

The latter goes for Richard Fahey and there’s also a couple of horses lining up for trainer Charlie Johnston, with Benacre and Abu Royal both having lively each-way chances when it comes to this encounter. We’re intrigued to see how the racing betting odds change in the build-up to the off and it’s worth noticing the runners who shorten on the market.

2023 Betfred Silver Bowl Handicap Tips

We’re looking forward to the 2023 Betfred Silver Bowl Handicap and seeing which horses benefit most from the drying ground at Haydock Park. The conditions have dramatically changed in the past couple of weeks which will suit certain horses and Covey is among them. The John & Thady Gosden-trained runner has a solid rating and has claimed back to back successes.

There was a victory at Newmarket when winning the Alex Scott Maiden Stakes over seven furlongs on 18 April, with a straightforward success then occurring at Newcastle in an uncompetitive race, although some will prefer the chances of Local Dynasty and the Charlie Appleby-trained runner has plenty in his favour.

At Chester on 11 May, the horse ran fairly well to finish third in a field of six runners. Sent off at odds of 5/2 in the Boodles Dee Stakes, the horse wasn’t able to reel in the front two over one mile, two and a half furlongs although the soft ground might not have been to his liking and perhaps conditions at Haydock will be better for this charge.

Gincident has been in the winners’ enclosure on more than one occasion this year, with the Richard Fahey-trained runner having claimed a victory at Musselburgh in a three-year-old mile handicap over one mile, with the horse having finished second in the Royal Mile Handicap at the same track and that was over one mile on good to soft ground.
