2023 Dubai Duty Free Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 22 April 2023

This is a Group 3 encounter that is run over seven furlongs and Bridestones takes pride of place at the head of the market. It’s not uncommon for a Charlie Appleby-trained runner to be favourite for a race such as this one, although a Godolphin horse doesn’t always perform well in these encounters, with Magical Sunset bidding for a consecutive hat-trick of wins.

This is an open betting contest where each-way punters will be looking to find some value from a big field and twenty-two runners will go to post for this heat. Swingalong has also had a taste of victory and might end up performing well along with Queen Me who has regularly hit the frame for trainer Kevin Ryan.

There are going to be lots of punters looking for extra places on their each-way bets, with Bridestones heading the betting although it’s hard to form a judgement on a runner who has been seen on just one occasion. While a victory at Yarmouth over one mile on 18 October was impressive enough, she might have to show more class in this encounter.

Magical Sunset has scored back to back successes coming into this race at Newbury, with one of the successes at this very racecourse. A seven furlong win on heavy ground was impressive and demonstrates some staying power on testing conditions, while there was previously a victory at Leicester Racecourse over six furlongs.

Swingalong scored at Ripon and York as a two-year-old before finishing fourth at Newmarket Racecourse in a previous outing. That placing was all the more impressive considering that the horse was competing in the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes over six furlongs, with this being a Group 1 encounter and more could come in this race.

Queen Me was third place in the Virgin Bet Firth Of Clyde Fillies' Stakes over six furlongs on good ground and will now aim to run well in more testing conditions, with Kevin Ryan having saddled his charge to a place on three different occasions. She could be a decent each-way bet on account of this level of consistency.
