2023 Heritage Handicap Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 20 May 2023

William Haggas saddles race favourite Desert Hero who has to have each-way claims as a bare minimum based on his achievements so far. The horse runs in the royal colours and looks to be a well-weighted three-year-old for this encounter, although Exoplanet was second last time out and looks to be a viable alternative for this clash.

Out of the sixteen runners, there are any number of potential winners and the good going should lead to a fast-run pace where the runners and riders will be jostling for position over one mile and two furlongs.

2023 London Gold Cup Heritage Handicap Tips

We’re excited to see which horse is going to come out on top in the BetVictor London Gold Cup Heritage Handicap. The latest betting odds make it a wide open encounter although Desert Hero looks set to go off as favourite. The three-year-old appears to have a favourable weight allowance of 9-0 and was last seen winning at Redcar last autumn.

There was no surprise about that victory at odds of 1/7 although the horse previously ran in the Solario Stakes at Sandown Racecourse in August where the favourite finished in third place. That was over seven furlongs and it could be that we’ll see more from the horse over a longer trip, with the horse slightly hampered in that race and that might have denied him the win.

Exoplanet was second last time out and that was also at Newbury Racecourse, with the Roger Varian-trained runner finding favourite Military Order too hot to handle. However, there was no disgrace in finishing four lengths behind the market leader and Royal Rhyme is another runner that has to be respected after landing a victory last time out.

Clifford Lee will be on board this runner and there was plenty to like about a win at Newmarket, with the 4/1 chance securing the spoils in the Howden Bloodstock Handicap on 7 May 2023. Beating favourite Rathgar by five lengths suggests that this horse could be a decent each-way play especially as the race was over one mile and two furlongs.
