2024 Temple Stakes Betting Odds at Haydock Park racecourse

Saturday, 25 May 2024

We’re looking forward to the Betfred Temple Stakes on Saturday, with the race scheduled to go off at 1.50pm. Live In The Dream and Rogue Lightning head the betting, with the two horses making their seasonal debut and the same applies to Regional who was able to land a number of successes for trainer Edward Bethell last season.

Asfoora looks like a talented five-year-old capable of being in the final shake-up, with a fast start essential given the short distance of the race. Beautiful Diamond is a three-year-old who could merit each-way money, with Seven Questions and Equality also in with a sniff of landing a victory at Haydock Park.

2024 Temple Stakes Tips

Live In The Dream has been installed as the betting favourite to win the Betfred Temple Stakes. The five-year-old is trained by Adam West and the horse is the highest-rated in the field, with some bright performances taking place last season. The last outing was in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint when the runner was able to finish fourth.

Previously to this, the horse was sent off as the 18/5 favourite in the Woodford Stakes at Keeneland before finishing fourth, with this coming in the Nunthorpe Stakes at York where the runner surprised everyone by obliging at betting odds of 28/1. However, there is some stiff competition in the form of Rogue Lightning who landed a number of wins last term.

The four-year-old finished fifth in the Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp Longines at the beginning of October, with this coming after three successive wins at Doncaster (twice) and Ascot. Tom Clover’s charge certainly has the credentials to record a victory and could merit some each-way money based on his latest price.

Asfoora has run three times this season, with the horse finishing fourth out of fourteen runners in the Kia Ora Galaxy at Rosehill in Australia. The previous two outings took place at Caulfield where the runner finished tenth and second respectively. It’s hard to match up the Australian form and perhaps Regional can make an impact.

The Platinum Queen is likely to go off favourite in the Betfred Temple Stakes, with the horse returning to the track after a relatively long absence. The Roger Varian-trained charge was last seen running in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint although the horse didn’t perform particularly well at Keeneland Racecourse in that two-year-old encounter after previously impressing.

However, there was previously a victory in the Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp Longines in early October, with this being on very soft ground over five furlongs. Indeed, there were a spate of wins in 2022 and the filly was able to score wins at York and Goodwood before claiming that victory in France. She could be the one to beat.

Twilight Calls wasn’t particularly impressive when running at Newmarket in early May, with the horse sent off as the 11/4 favourite when finishing ninth in the Howden Palace House Stakes, with the runner looking to now show the sort of form that saw a second-placed finish in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot last summer.

Royal Aclaim was sent off as the 5/2 favourite in the Qatar Prix du Petit Couvert before finishing third in a five furlong contest at Longchamp, with the horse having previously run in the Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe Stakes when finishing sixth in a race that also included The Platinum Queen and more improvement is needed here.
