2023 Northumberland Plate Betting Odds at Newcastle racecourse

Saturday, 01 July 2023

There’s a maximum of twenty runners who will go to post for the 2023 Northumberland Plate at Newcastle Racecourse, with this encounter just over two miles and there are a number of horses trading at similar prices. Post Impressionist and Zoffee head the betting, although the plain truth is that this is a good each-way betting race and customers should look to get extra places.

Adjuvant is a talented four-year-old who comes into the race off the back of a win, with Golden Rules successful on his last outing and it will be interesting to see if Roberto Escobarr can come on for a recent run at York where the horse ran into fourth at the Knavesmire although his chances have been respected by the bookmaker.

2023 Northumberland Plate Tips

The Jenningsbet Northumberland Plate Handicap looks set to be an intriguing encounter and it’s something of a jigsaw puzzle trying to work out which horse might land a victory here. There are different ways to approach this race from a betting point-of-view, with customers able to back win-only or alternatively go for each-way selections.

Jockey Tom Marquand is on board Post Impressionist who will return to the track for the first time as a four-year-old. Previously, the horse landed a victory in a handicap race at York back in October over one mile and six furlong. That was a convincing win by nearly three lengths and it will be interesting to see how the William Haggas runner performs here.

Zoffee is also respected by the bookmakers, with Hugo Palmer hoping that his seven-year-old is able to perform well on the all-weather track, with the runner not disgracing himself when finishing sixth in the recent Ascot Stakes in what was a competitive encounter over two miles and four furlongs. There was also a second-placed finish at Chester before this.

Adjuvant has performed well in the past two outings, with a victory coming at Newmarket in the middle of May. Sent off as the 5/2 favourite, there was a two length win over one mile and six furlongs, so it will be interesting to see how the horse copes with a longer trip. The horse previously performed well in the Howden Handicap and was narrowly edged out in the Howden Handicap.

2022 Northumberland Plate Tips

There has been money for Rajinsky in the build-up to the 2022 Northumberland Plate betting odds, with the horse having been backed in and it will be interesting to see whether the Hugo Palmer-trained runner continues to see money for it as the race approaches on Saturday.

Having won a handicap race at Ripon towards the end of April, Rajinsky then ran favourably in the Chester Cup and landed third place at betting odds of 6/1, with Cleveland and Coltrane proving too strong although he still rewarded each-way backers.

Valley Forge was the 4/1 joint-favourite in the Cazoo Hell Nook Handicap when winning, with Andrew Balding bidding to win this race for the first time as a trainer. It was a victory by a head and represented an improvement on his first outing of the campaign where the horse finished fifth out of nine.

Trueshan is the interesting runner in the field and the Alan King runner could end up proving to be the class animal, with connections deciding against running the horse at Royal Ascot despite trading as one of the favourites for his race.

The bookies are now respecting the chances of a six-year-old who is bidding to win a fifth successive race and let’s not forget that Trueshan chinned Stradivarius in the Qatar Prix du Cadran when being sent off as the 8/5 favourite.

That was followed up by a victory in the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup at evens, with Hollie Doyle giving the horse a tremendous spin and odds of 10/1 when it comes to the Newcastle racing odds could end up being a gift for each-way punters.

Roberto Escobarr Heads the 2021 Northumberland Plate Betting

A William Haggas-trained horse is generally never far away from the top of a betting market like this and perhaps he will have the market leader, with Roberto Escobarr making an appearance at Newcastle and the four-year-old is among the top-weighted horses.

The horse was recently seen in the winners’ enclosure when obliging in the Sky Bet Race to the Ebor Grand Cup Stakes and this should be noted was a listed race, with the horse previously finishing in fifth spot when running in a top class race at Ascot.

Dancing King Could Run a Big Race at Newcastle Racecourse

Dancing King is currently trading at a double figure price and this is a horse who could be open to big improvement at three-years-old, with Mark Johnston seeing his runner having collected four victories in 2021 which bodes well for a race such as this one.

The Kingsley Park 16-owned runner has also secured wins at all-weather tracks when making an appearance at Wolverhampton and Kempton, with further victories being secured at Doncaster and Leicester along the way.

Bodyline has had a long absence away from the track and much depends on whether the horse can rediscover the form that had him bang in contention in the King George V Stakes on 17 June 2020 before finishing in sixth place.

This horse is trained by Sir Mark Prescott and there’s another runner from this stable in the form of Longsider who has only raced once this season at the time of writing, securing a victory in the Betway Novices Stakes at Lingfield Park.
