2023 Carnarvon Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 20 May 2023

Noble Style has been running in esteemed company recently and there’s every chance that the horse can land a victory in this listed race. The horse is comfortably the highest-rated in the field and William Buick might be able to ride him to a victory against seven other rivals, although there could be some competition from the likes of Aesop’s Fables and Shaquille.

The former is trained by Aidan O’Brien and has plenty of experience under his belt, while Shaquille is saddled by Julie Camacho and could be a popular each-way bet, having won three consecutive races. Rabaah and Rumstar will be capable of also running into a place, with Desert Cop also vying for a position in the first three.

2023 Carnarvon Stakes Tips

Noble Style has been enjoying some strong form and we shouldn’t be dismissive of a recent sixth place at Newmarket in early May. The three-year-old was after all competing in the 2000 Guineas and a midfield performance in this classic race is nothing to scoff at, with Charlie Appleby now hoping for a bright performance in a far less competitive race at York.

Although the horse was unable to find extra when asked the question on soft ground at Newmarket, the pace might not be so hot over six furlongs in the Carnarvon Stakes and there is plenty to like about the three consecutive wins that were landed at Ascot, Newmarket and York last season.

Aesop’s Fables and Shaquille come next in the betting, with the former having finished second in a five-runner race at Navan last time out. That was over five and a half furlongs on heavy ground and the horse might appreciate less testing conditions, with the horse also finishing runner-up at Doncaster over six furlongs on heavy ground last October.

Shaquille has been a three-time winner already and is being respected by the horse racing betting sites, with the three-year-old having most recently won at Newmarket in early May. Sent off at 11/4 in the Howden Insurance Handicap, there was a six furlong victory on soft ground, with potentially more to come from a horse that has been in the winning habit.
