2024 Carnarvon Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 18 May 2024

There are two horses trading at single figure betting odds when it comes to the Carnarvon Stakes, with Relief Rally and James’s Delight regarded as the most likely horses to land a victory. The former landed a number of victories last season and the latest effort this season saw the horse produced a fourth-placed finish.

The second favourite has claimed two wins this season and there’s also bold each-way claims from Pocklington who has enjoyed back to back successes. Adaay In Devon has also claimed a couple of victories this term, with Elite Status and Mister Sketch among the others that could form part of the shortlist.

Relief Rally finished fourth last time out at Newbury when there were six runners although the three-year-old had previously displayed some smart form. There was a victory at York in August, with the horse obliging by a length in the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes, while the horse was also able to claim the spoils in the Super Sprint Stakes at Newbury.

That was a victory achieved against nineteen other runners, with the horse having previously run well in the Queen Mary Stakes when losing by a nose against Crimson Advocate. It suggests that the horse is the one to beat, although James’s Delight has performed well for trainer Clive Cox this season.

There was a success at Pontefract in early April when achieving a victory by six and a half lengths. Thus followed a disappointing effort at Newbury, although this was followed by a success at Newmarket where Two Tribes was beaten by a length and a quarter in the William Hill Bet In-Running Handicap over six furlongs.

Pocklington has achieved consecutive wins in his two races to date and the three-year-old could go well for Geoff Oldroyd, with both successes coming on the all-weather surface at Newcastle Racecourse. Adaay In Devon was second at Ascot out of ten runners in the Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes over six furlongs.

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.
