2024 Aston Park Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 18 May 2024

The Aston Park Stakes takes place on Saturday 18 May, with Desert Hero trading as the favourite to win this encounter over one mile and four furlongs. The four-year-old was second on his last appearance, with the William Haggas-trained runner heading the betting market ahead of Jack Darcy and Bluestocking.

Hamish looks an interesting runner in this Newbury encounter, with this being another William Haggas charge who has racked up a number of victories in a relatively short career. Middle Earth could also be a viable contender and there could be a solid showing from Salt Bay who was third last time out.

2024 Aston Park Stakes Tips

Desert Hero is one of several William Haggas-trained runners who will line up in the Aston Park Stakes, with the four-year-old likely to go off as favourite. The horse was last seen finishing second in the Gordon Richards Stakes, with the horse narrowly beaten by a head at Sandown Park, with victories coming at Ascot and Goodwood last time out.

The victory at Ascot came in the King George V Stakes when the horse was able to oblige at betting odds of 18/1. That came before a triumph in the John Pearce Racing Gordon Stakes, with Jack Darcy coming next in the betting and the runner was recently fifth in a race at Riyadh when performing well in the Neom Turf Cup.

Bluestocking runs for trainer Ralph Beckett and there was plenty to like about his recent showing at Ascot in October where the horse finished second out of fourteen runners. The horse was beaten by just a neck by Poptronic and that came after a runner-up performance at Chester when being sent off at odds-on for the Stand Cup Stakes.

Hamish is the horse who also boasts solid credentials, with the eight-year-old having collected a spate of wins over the past few outings. The latest success came at Newbury when obliging with a victory in the Surprise Stakes. This came after a triumph in the St Simon Stakes over one mile and four furlongs.
