2024 Derby Trial Stakes Betting Odds at Lingfield Park racecourse

Saturday, 11 May 2024

There could be as many as ten runners lining up in the 2023 Lingfield Derby Trial Stakes, with Military Order likely to be a warm order. Charlie Appleby’s charge knows what is required to get into the winners’ enclosure, while Sir Michael Stoute saddles Circle of Fire who runs in the royal colours and returns quickly to the course.

Bertinelli is the Aidan O’Brien-trained horse that merits plenty of respect, with the runner having been placed first or second in his past three races, with Ndaawi returning to the course after a long absence, with Think First running in similar silk colours and the three-year-old has a similar rating after finishing fourth last time out.

2023 Lingfield Derby Trial Stakes Tips

Military Order is a horse that is bidding to land a third consecutive win, with the horse running in the Darley Novice Stakes last time out and managing to oblige at odds of even money. That was against four other runners, with the horse landing the spoils at odds-on when running in a Novice Stakes over one mile at Newmarket in the previous encounter.

Circle Of Fire runs for jockey Richard Kingscote and this runs in the royal colours, with the hope that the King-owned runner is able to impress and line up as a main Derby contender, with second place occurring at Newmarket in early May when finishing two lengths behind Castle Way when the horse was last seen at a course.

Bertinelli was second last time out and the three-year-old could potentially go one better over one mile and four furlongs at Lingfield Racecourse on the all-weather track. That was a runner-up performance at Cork and the 2/1 favourite was narrowly beaten by Alder, with the horse leading two furlongs out but unable to stay the pace against the leader.

Ndaawi was able to secure back to back wins as a two-year-old, with victories coming at Goodwood and Epsom. The first of these was a Maiden Stakes win and then came a Conditions Stakes victory in the latter. We wouldn’t be surprised if the horse is in the final shake-up and this will be a race where stamina levels are severely tested.
