2024 Godolphin Mile Betting Odds at Meydan racecourse

Saturday, 30 March 2024

The Godolphin Mile has been in operation since 1994, with Secret Ambition, Bathrat Leon and Isolate among the recent winners of the race. The latter looks set to take his chances here, although the runner is not trading as the betting favourite. Instead it’s Saudi Crown who is the market leader and he could take all the beating.

The American raider is trained by Brad H Cox although the horse could only finish third out of fourteen runners last time out. Isolate is the reigning champion and there could also be money for Swing Vote and Walk Of Stars. This is sure to be a competitive encounter and it could be worth looking for where the money goes.

2024 Godolphin Mile Tips

Saudi Crown is a four-year-old with big potential and the horse finished third out of fourteen runners last time out. This was an encounter at Riyadh where the 25/1 shot came within a whisker of landing a success. The horse actually led in this race and only weakened towards the end of the exchange.

The fact that the Saudi Cup was over one mile and one furlong means that perhaps we can expect more over a shorter distance, with Senor Buscador and Ushba Tesoro finishing ahead of Saudi Crown on that occasion. Previously to this was a success at Fair Grounds back in January where the 7/10 favourite was able to beat five other rivals.

Isolate is trained by Doug Watson and the horse was the winner of the Godolphin Mile twelve months ago, with the runner claiming a five and a half length success. The fact that this horse has the course and distance stands him in good stead, with the horse then delivering the goods in the Al Maktoum Mile.

However, the horse could only manage sixth place in the Saudi Cup last time out when being sent off at 25/1 and needs to find improvement to beat Saudi Crown on this occasion. Swing Vote and Walk Of Stars are other runners who could end up running a big race and it’s worth looking at the price movement before the off here.

2023 Godolphin Mile Tips

Although the field and final runners remains unknown at the time of writing, we are looking forward to the 2023 Godolphin Mile and we might see the return of a former champion lining up. Secret Ambition was able to score at odds of 12/1 as an eight-year-old when kicking six lengths clear of Golden Goal and he deserves his place here.

The horse has had a mixed time of things recently. There was a recent win in the Jebel Ali Classic, with the B Seemar-trained charge able to edge Tamborrada and that was over seven furlongs. Prior to this run, there was an underwhelming performance in the Burj Nahaar over one mile although we can perhaps draw a line in this Group 3 performance.

Richard Mullen will be back in the saddle for this race and the jockey has previously steered the former champ to some of his better performances. Bhupat Seemar certainly feels as though his runner can reproduce former glories and the fact that there have now been twelve career wins means that we have to afford plenty of respect here.
