2024 bet365 Handicap Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Thursday, 18 April 2024

As many as twenty horses will go to post for this race at Newmarket Racecourse on Saturday 13 July, with Richard Hannon having a couple of horses near the top of the order. Magical Sunset is the trainer’s highest-rated charge in the race, while Starnberg has landed a couple of victories this season and Dark Thirty also goes for the same stable.

Trainer Kevin Ryan is also likely to have more than one horse competing in the bet365 Handicap, with Washington Heights and Catch The Paddy among the ten highest-rated runners in the field, while Desert Cop is the horse that has to carry the most weight and he’s been running in esteemed company compared to some of the other horses.

Desert Cop might have finished sixth last time out although that should be tempered by the fact that the horse wound up landing this position in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. Sent off at odds of 40/1, the runner punched above his weight and only finished five lengths behind eventual winner Bradsell, with that coming after a bright performance at Newbury.

The horse was runner-up behind Shaquille in the BetVictor Carnarvon Stakes over six furlongs and the horse was a big price for that encounter. However, we’re likely to see a shorter price this time around, with Kerdos having finished runner-up in the Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes over five furlongs at Royal Ascot.

The horse was previously third in a five furlong handicap at Chester, with Magical Sunset another runner that turned out at the Royal Ascot meeting. Finishing eighth place in the Sandringham Stakes was a decent outcome at betting odds of 25/1, with the horse having also acquitted himself well when finishing fourth in a listed race at Epsom.

Alpha Capture has plenty to prove after finishing dead last at Lingfield at the beginning of March, with Mill Stream finishing third in a Sprint Handicap at York Racecourse. That was a solid performance out of twenty-one runners, with the horse having found the company too strong in the Betfred Nifty Fifty Sandy Lane Stakes which was a Group 2 encounter.

Changing Colours has enjoyed three smart races thus far, with the three-year-old having last been seen in the British Stallion Studs EBF Spindrifter Conditions Stakes back in June. Sent off as the 1/2 favourite, the runner finished second and a defeat by Shandy Star on that occasion does not mean that we should be persuaded to back this horse.

The fact that this horse is owned by Godolphin and trained by Charlie Appleby sometimes means that runners are trading artificially short, with Kerdos having run in the past month and the three-year-old finishing second in a handicap on the all-weather at Lingfield Park, with previous victories coming at Haydock and Windsor.

Pinafore was successful in his past outing although this happened a while ago, with the three-year-old having obliged in a fillies’ novices stakes on the all-weather at Kempton Racecourse back in September, with the horse previously running second at Yarmouth Racecourse and there is merit in considering an each-way wager.

Shouldvebeenaring is an interesting contender and the horse has had a really recent outing, with the Richard Hannon-trained charge having finished second as the 2/1 favourite at Wolverhampton, with this race taking place on 7 April. Ferrous and California Gem are other runners of note, with Immortal Beauty being ridden by Ryan Moore.
