2023 Bahrain Trophy Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Thursday, 13 July 2023

There’s some big prize money up for grabs when it comes to Thursday’s Newmarket racecard, with the Bahrain Trophy Stakes a Group 3 encounter where the winner will come away with over £100,000. There are several notable entries and Saint George, with the Andrew Balding-trained charge having landed back to back wins this season.

Castle Way was successful in his only outing this season and could be a lively contender, with the three-year-old running in the Godolphin colours, while Tower Of London has achieved consecutive successes and Aidan O’Brien will be expecting a smart performance from a runner who will return to the track very quickly after a recent win.

It’s going to be hot race when it comes to the 1.50pm at Newmarket Racecourse on Thursday 13 July, with Saint George looking like the one to beat and the Andrew Balding-trained charge was last seen turning out at Royal Ascot. In the Queen’s Vase, the horse was only beaten into second place by even money favourite Gregory.

Previously to this, there was a victory at Doncaster in a handicap race over one mile, six and a half furlongs, with Cieren Fallon on board a runner who could set the benchmark for the other runners. Castle Way runs in this race and was successful at this very track when obliging in the Newmarket Stakes over one mile and two furlongs.

Charlie Appleby will now expect more from a runner who was also successful at Newmarket last October, with the horse obliging in a Nursery Handicap over one mile and two furlongs. However, Tower Of London has passed a couple of assignments when claiming a victory at Leopardstown before slamming home another victory at Down Royal.

The three-year-old will now come across from Ireland to compete, with the latest success coming in the Ulster Derby over one mile and five furlongs. It was a convincing win by over four lengths, with the horse previously obliging in the King George V Cup at Leopardstown over one mile and four furlongs.
