2023 Abernant Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Thursday, 20 April 2023

Creative Force has struggled to secure a victory in his previous horse races, although the five-year-old heads the betting for the 2023 Abernant Stakes. Not for the first time at the Craven Meeting, a Godolphin horse is favourite to land a victory and it will be interesting to see how the horse runs after half a year away from the track.

The runner won’t appeal to those looking for each-way value and Ehraz is a four-year-old trading at a more palatable price. Ryan Moore is on board Garrus for trainer Charles Hills and you can currently get double figure prices about Jumby and Tiber Flow, with a case potentially being made for both runners.

2023 Abernant Stakes Tips

Creative Force has failed to win any of his previous five races, although the Charlie Appleby-trained charge has been operating in esteemed company. Therefore, we might expect the horse to be successful in the Abernant Stakes and perhaps punters should be too put off the fact that the five-year-old has found life tough when it comes to getting in the winners’ enclosure.

In the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Keeneland in early November, the Godolphin charge ran a creditable race when finishing third at betting odds of 15/2, with Caravel the shock winner although William Buick managed to steer the horse close to a victory. Previously to this, the runner was also in the frame when finishing third in the British Champions Sprint Stakes.

Not that this is a one-horse race and the horse racing betting odds suggest that the favourite is less likely to win than succeed. Ehraz is next in the market and the four-year-old has the ability to improve more because of his age, with trainer Richard Hannon no stranger to success at the Craven Meeting and perhaps we’ll see a winner here.

The four-year-old was third in the Cammidge Trophy Stakes at Doncaster Racecourse on heavy ground over six furlongs, with the runner a facile winner of a three-horse race at Newmarket back in October. Garrus was eighth in his most recent showing, although that was in a competitive heat at Riyadh and more could come from this runner.
