2022 Northumberland Plate Betting Odds at Newcastle racecourse

Saturday, 25 June 2022

Compare the latest Northumberland Plate odds when it comes to a horse race over two miles and half a furlong. Six-year-old Rajkinsky will look to land a second win of the season at Newcastle Racecourse, although Valley Forge has also been in the winners’ enclosure this term.

The bookmakers are likely to be offering extra places for this race and it’s worth comparing the Northumberland Plate betting odds. Trueshan missed the chance to run at Royal Ascot but could turn up at this course bidding to secure a fifth successive win.

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.
