2023 World Trophy Stakes Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 23 September 2023

Sense Of Duty has been out of action for over a year although the horse racing betting sites still think that the charge is the one to beat when it comes to the World Trophy Stakes. The four-year-old was impressive in 2022 and it will be interesting to see how the runner performs on a reappearance in a Group 3 encounter.

Annaf has had plenty of runs this season and the Michael Appleby-trained runner was in the winners’ enclosure last time out, while Raasel has also had plenty of recent outings and we can’t overlook Emaraaty Ana who is the highest-rated horse in the field. Kevin Ryan’s charge could represent each-way value at the prices.

The big question is how Sense Of Duty will perform after such a long lay-off. Since winning on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse on 25 June 2022, the four-year-old has been away from the track and now returns to make a seasonal debut. Looking at previous form, the runner was hot property and won the Chipchase Stakes on that last outing.

However, the fact that the horse has been away from the track for such a long time raises a red flag and perhaps there is better each-way value in the race. Annaf was able to see off a big field at the St Leger meeting when obliging in the Betfred Portland, with the four-year-old able to claim a victory by a short head.

Raasel also ran at the Doncaster St Leger Festival and managed to finish second out of four runners in the Scarborough Stakes, with the horse sent off at even money on that occasion before missing out to Rogue Lightning. However, that was preceded by a handicap victory at Haydock Park over five furlongs on good ground.

Emaraaty Ana is an older horse that has solid credentials and there are likely to be horse racing price boosts available for this runner. Kevin Ryan saddles a runner who was third at York Racecourse last time out, with the horse being sent off as the 2/1 favourite, although the horse finished second in the Hopeful Stakes at Newmarket at the end of August.
