2023 bet365 Handicap Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Thursday, 20 April 2023

We’re counting down towards the 2023 bet365 Handicap and it could be worth compiling a shortlist of runners considering as many as fifteen will line up. It’s also worth paying attention to the weights that each horse has been afforded, with Changing Colours carrying 8-11 although the charge hasn’t been seen at a race track for nearly a year.

Kerdos has been run far more recently and the Clive Cox-trained runner and the three-year-old might benefit from a recent outing, while Pinafore is another horse that has had a long lay-off ahead of this Craven meeting and it’s worth looking at the price movements before deciding which way to go ahead with the wagers.

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.
