2023 London Mile Handicap Betting Odds at Kempton Park racecourse

Saturday, 01 April 2023

Million Thanks runs for trainer Kevin Philippart De Foy and the four-year-old is one of the leading contenders for the 2023 London Mile Handicap. The horse was recently in action and will now head to Kempton Park to compete in this London Mile Series Qualifier, with Naval Commander trading at a similar price and this looks a good each-way price.

Naval Commander runs for Robyn Brisland and the six-year-old is carrying more weight than the other favourite in the race, with Al Marmar another four-year-old set to run in the Kempton showdown, with Brains and Stately Home also set to line up. With five horses trading at single figure odds, we’re interested to see how the prices move.

London Mile Handicap 2023 Tips

We’ve got an intriguing card for Kempton Park on Saturday 1 April, with Million Thanks heading the betting for the Unibet’s Improved Bet Builder Handicap and the race is due to go off at 2.40pm on the all-weather track. The four-year-old bounced back from a disappointing run at Lingfield Park before bouncing back to finish second at Kempton in an early March handicap race.

Naval Commander is another horse that is competing for favouritism, with the six-year-old narrowly getting beaten in his previous running when finishing second to favourite Positive, with the runner bidding for a first victory in five attempts, with Kieran O’Neill on board a runner who should be able to go close despite a prohibitive weight.

Al Marmar is a four-year-old who might have been disappointing last time out although the bookmakers still afford plenty of respect to a runner who was well down the order at Newcastle in the middle of March. Perhaps the horse will benefit from a seasonal reappearance after a long lay-off and previous performances suggest he could go close.

Brains hasn’t been out of the places in the past four races and that suggests that an each-way wager could be the way forward here. The John Butler-trained runner was last seen finishing third at Wolverhampton over a distance which was a little more than a mile, with the horse having finished in the same position at Lingfield Racecourse.
