2024 AW Sprint Championship Betting Odds at Newcastle racecourse

Friday, 29 March 2024

John & Thady Gosden could have the winner of the All-Weather Sprint Handicap and Cover Up has been racking up the victories. The four-year-old looks set to go off as favourite and there is also plenty to recommend Albasheer who has landed successive victories coming into this encounter at Newcastle Racecourse.

Batal Dubai is next in the betting market and should be able to put up a strong performance, with Juan Les Pins a talented seven-year-old running for trainer Michael Appleby. There’s also plenty to recommend Fivethousandtoone who is certainly not trading at those odds when it comes to securing a success here.

2024 All-Weather Sprint Handicap Tips

The All-Weather Sprint Handicap looks like an intriguing encounter and it could be favourite Cover Up who is able to record a victory. The four-year-old is bidding to secure a fourth successive victory and the latest of these came on the all-weather at Newcastle on 22 February, with the runner obliging as the odds-on favourite.

A few days previously, the horse was able to oblige in a twelve-runner race at the same track and that came after a win at Lingfield Park at the beginning of November. Should you think that Cover Up can continue this winning trend, then he’s a backable each-way price and the Godolphin horse has plenty to recommend him.

Batal Dubai has been backed ahead of the race and the Clifford Lee-ridden runner was third at Lingfield on his last appearance. Sent off as the 7/4 favourite in a Sprint Trial Handicap, the charge was narrowly edged out over six furlongs. This came after a second-placed finish out of six runners at Kempton.

In his preceding race, the horse was third out of thirteen in a race at Newcastle which was won by Albasheer. The Archie Watson-trained runner has secured back to back victories coming into this race and the latest of these came on the all-weather earlier this month when obliging as the 2/1 favourite at Newcastle.

2023 All-Weather Sprint Championships Betting Tips

The 2023 All-Weather Sprint Championships is packed with quality horses and it will be interesting to see how the front two in the betting perform against each other once again. Annaf and Diligent Harry were separated by the smallest of margins when they last met, with the former able to score by a neck in a recent encounter at Lingfield Park.

That was over six furlongs and this is another race over the same distance. It will be interesting to see whether the Clive Cox-trained charge is able to frank the form, with the five-year-old previously winning at Newcastle all-weather in mid-February and that was an impressive win, although this is far from a two-horse encounter.

Vadream could be coming to the boil at the right time, with Charlie Fellowes having seen his horse progressively improve and the victory at Doncaster Racecourse on 1 April with a victory of four and a half lengths occurring. Kieran Shoemark was on board that time although he’s jumping off the horse to ride Diligent Harry.

Summerghand needs to find some improvement if he’s to oblige with a victory on the all-weather championships day, with Daniel Tudhope on board a runner who was last seen racing in Doha in the middle of February. However, there was little over a length separating this horse compared to Annaf and perhaps there is more value in backing the bigger-priced runner.
