2022 St Simon Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 22 October 2022

The St Simon Stakes betting odds are available at Racing-Odds.com on an annual basis. This is a Group 3 flat horse race that takes place at the end of the flat racing season. It is run over a distance of one mile and four furlongs, with this encounter taking place in October and there is a purse of around £70,000 available.

Interestingly, there has only been one horse that has won the St Simon Stakes on more than one occasion. Therefore, a useful horse racing tip is to look beyond the horses that have previously triumphed. The dual winner was Jupiter Island who obliged in 1983 and then returned to the track three years later to land the spoils in 1986.

The legendary Henry Cecil has been able to score on four separate occasions. Main Reef was the winner in 1979 and it was Upend that saw the same trainer in the winners’ enclosure in 1988 before Wellbeing was on target in 2000. High Pitched was victorious a year later to score the 2001 St Simon Stakes.

As far as horse racing betting trends go, there have been a mixture of different-aged winners for this Newbury Racecourse encounter. Max Vega was the 2022 winner as a five-year-old and he followed in the footsteps of the four-year-old victor Ilaraab. The latter was trained by William Haggas and the former obliged courtesy of Ralph Beckett.

Not many seven-year-olds have been winners when it has come to the recent running of the St Simon Stakes, although Euchen Glen was able to score in the 2020 renewal at that particular age.

It is worth considering an each-way bet on this horse race, with a seven pound penalty in place for any Group 1 winner, with five pounds penalty for Group 2 winners and three pounds for any horse that has won a Group 3 encounter.
