2023 London Mile Handicap Betting Odds at Kempton Park racecourse

Saturday, 09 September 2023

There are any number of horses that can land a victory in this race, with Kathab running for trainer William Haggas although there could be value in looking for bigger prices. First View was second last time out and Baltimore Boy went one better by triumphing in a previous encounter, with the four-year-old looking like a solid each-way pick.

Flyawaydream has achieved back to back third placed finishes, with Helm Rock and Just Bring It having recorded a win in their past outing, while City Of York has achieved consecutive wins and they were attained recently. King Cabo and Two Tempting are other potential each-way shouts for extra places.

Kathab is among the three-year-olds lining up in the Unibet London Mile, with William Haggas saddling a horse who has won two of his previous three encounters. The runner returns to action quickly, with the runner finishing third in the Ripon Rowels Handicap after winning a London Series Qualifier at Haydock Park at the beginning of August.

First View and Baltimore Boy were left battling it out at Kempton Park towards the end of August, with the latter winning a handicap for trainer Michael Bell. The former was sent off as the 3/1 favourite on that occasion, with half a length separating the two horses. Baltimore Boy had previously flattered to deceive before that victory.

Flyawaydream will be looking to build on consecutive third-placed finishes, with the latest performance taking place at Ascot where the horse flattered to deceive as the 8/13 favourite. Previously to this, there was a stronger performance to finish third out of fifteen horses in a London Mile Series Qualifier.

Helm Rock was the winner on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse over one mile, with the Daniel & Claire Kubler-trained runner winning a one-mile handicap. Just Bring It runs for Clive Cox, with a Racing League encounter being won at Windsor on 17 August. City Of York has two victories to his name and the latest actually happened at Kempton.

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.
