2023 Autumn Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 14 October 2023

Ancient Wisdom is a horse that might take plenty of beating in the Emirates Autumn Stakes, with Charlie Appleby’s two-year-old certainly having the quality to get the job done over a distance of one mile. This Group 3 contest will certainly take some winning and perhaps the biggest threat could come from stablemate Arabian Crown.

If either of the pair fail to land a victory, perhaps Orne can be the one to take full advantage, with John & Thady Gosden’s charge having landed a recent victory. Aidan O’Brien also has a couple of contenders in the form of Navy Seal and Grosvenor Square, with Arabic Legend and Ambiente Friendly others runners in with a chance of victory.

2023 Autumn Stakes Tips

In terms of overall rating and price, there’s little to separate Ancient Wisdom and Arabian Crown when it comes to Saturday’s Autumn Stakes. The former was able to claim successive wins before finishing third last time out, with the season starting with a victory at Haydock Park in June where the runner won a Novice Stakes race.

Then came another easy Novice Stakes victory as the odds-on favourite at Newmarket, with a third placed finish coming in the Pat Eddery Stakes on 29 July. It could be that his strongest rival comes in the form of Arabian Crown who has landed consecutive wins when obliging at Sandown and then Salisbury for connections.

It will be interesting to see which of the runners is ridden by William Buick, with this being the preferred Godolphin jockey. It’s hard to separate the two runners based on the latest form, although Orne could be the fly in the ointment and this horse will be sent to post by John & Thady Gosden after an opening win at Kempton.

That victory came in the Unibet Zero Mission British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes on 22 September, with the horse achieving a half-length win over seven furlongs. Navy Seal comes next in the betting and this is an Aidan O’Brien-trained charge who ran under par last time out when finishing fourth in the Group 2 Beresford Stakes.
