2024 The Queens Cup Betting Odds at Musselburgh racecourse

Saturday, 30 March 2024

There could be a lively encounter over one mile and six furlongs, with Chillingham running for Edward Bethell and the five-year-old could be a strong contender. Meanwhile, Sweet Fantasy is another talented five-year-old who runs for James Owen, with less weight being carried by this horse and there could be plenty to come from this charge.

Berkshire Rocco is a seven-year-old who could also make an impression, with the horse carrying 9-7 and there’s also Struth who is trading at single figure racing betting odds. The four-year-old goes for trainer Charlie Johnston and the same handler also has Hope You Can Run lining up for this encounter.

Chillingham returns to make his seasonal debut and the five-year-old could go off as favourite to win the Queen’s Cup. The last performance saw the horse finish second out of ten runners on the all-weather at Wolverhampton when the runner finished narrowly behind Prydwen when being sent off at 4/1.

This came after finishing ninth out of thirteen runners at Newcastle back in November, with Sweet Fantasy looking like a better contender after registering consecutive victories. There was a smart performance at Catterick in early March when there was a seventeen length triumph against five other runners.

Berkshire Rocco is a seven-year-old who runs off a favourable mark of 9-7 and the horse is capable of bouncing back from a disappointing showing at Salisbury last time out. The runner previously ran well when finishing fifth out of a field of twenty-two when finishing two and a half lengths behind Absurde.

Struth was able to run well on the all-weather at Newcastle in his previous outing and we think that this could be the value bet in the race. Losing by a neck in the Virgin Bet November Handicap provides a good platform upon which this horse can build. There were previously encouraging showings made at Ascot and Newmarket.

Spirit Mixer is a talented five-year-old who last ran in July, with Andrew Balding saddling the horse to a sixth-placed finish in a competitive handicap at Newmarket. That was in the bet365 Trophy on the July course, with the runner also putting in a good effort when finishing second in the Northumberland Plate on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse.

Last season, there were a string of wins for the same horse and the first of these came at Salisbury in early May, with this being a success over one mile and six furlongs. Then there was a success over a similar distance at Chelmsford, with Callum Hutchinson on board the runner for this latest effort and the pair appear to be a good combination.

Wise Eagle runs for trainer Adam Nicol and owners The Seahouses Syndicate will look to be celebrating in the winners enclosure as they were at Pontefract back in October. Danny Tudhope was on board the runner who was able to oblige over two miles and two furlongs, so this latest race is a step back in trip for a horse who should be able to stay the pace.

Previous wins at Redcar and Musselburgh means that the runner has to be respected and we’re interested to see if Good Show can do exactly that when he lines up in this race. A second-placed finish to Self Inflicted Sid was the last time we saw the runner at a race track, with Keith Dalgleish’s charge having been lightly-raced.
