Saturday, 15 July 2023

There are lots of familiar names who are lining up to compete in the 2023 Bunbury Cup, with Awaal looking favourably weighted when carrying 9-7 for an encounter over seven furlongs. Audience is carrying two pounds extra and although John & Thady Gosden will be hoping that their horse can secure yet another win.

Bless Him is at the other end of the age scale and the nine-year-old will run for David Simcock in the hope that a first victory of the season will be recorded. There is also Croupier running for Simon & Ed Crisford, with Montassib a potentially talented five-year-old turning out for William Haggas and Tiber Flow could also go for the handler.

2023 Bunbury Cup Tips

There’s a strong likelihood that a four-year-old will land a victory in the bet365 Bunbury Cup, with Awaal certainly a horse that can be respected after his showing in the Royal Hunt Cup. Having been sent off at odds of 15/2 for this Royal Ascot encounter, the horse was onl beaten by two horses but was able to finish ahead of twenty-seven runners.

Audience was a winner at Leicester back in October before a surprise win in the Criterion Stakes at Newmarket, with the John & Thady Gosden-trained charge having won by two lengths when sent off at betting odds of 14/1. This was over seven furlongs and the horse will aim to emulate this achievement over the same distance.

Bless Him hasn’t been close to landing a victory this season although the nine-year-old was a strong performer in the Royal Hunt Cup and that came after a seventh-placed finish in the BetVictor Handicap, with that coming at Newbury towards the end of May. The 33/1 chance also performed well in the Spring Cup Handicap over one mile at the same track.

Croupier is definitely worth a second look, with the four-year-old second to The Witch Hunter in the Buckingham Palace Stakes, with the 7/1 shot missing out by less than a length and this came after a victory in the Sky Bet Hambleton Handicap at York Racecourse, with the horse in seemingly good nick ahead of this encounter.


2022 Bunbury Cup Tips

It’s worth looking at the Bunbury Cup betting trends and also the movement in the betting market in the lead-up to the Newmarket seven furlong race. This is a Class 2 race and it’s a Heritage Handicap, with the weights likely to be important when it comes to trying to pick a winner of this race.

William Haggas could have a lively runner in the form of Montassib, with the four-year-old having landed two victories already this season. A facile win at Wetherby was followed by a more impressive handicap triumph at Goodwood, with the same runner sent off as the 7/2 favourite in the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

However, on that occasion, Montassib could only finish in fifth place and didn’t have the requisite pace to challenge. Perhaps he will be a good each-way contender in this encounter and the weight being carried by the horse could be favourable.

Samburu runs for John Gosden, with the three-year-old having wins under his belt this season. Sent off as the 5/6 favourite, the runner was able to triumph at Salisbury before another odds-on win on 11 May when the horse was able to enjoy a slender handicap win over 40/1 chance Snooze N You Lose.

Samburu then ran in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and finished sixth at odds of 11/2, with Deodar another interesting runner in this race. This is another Juddmonte-owned horse although Ralph Beckett is the trainer of this three-year-old who told us nothing with a facile win at Doncaster.


Who Are Betting Favourites to Win Bunbury Cup 2021?

Perotto is bidding to win his third consecutive race, with the three-year-old trained by Marcus Tregoning and there have been recent victories at Goodwood and Ascot which has seen this horse leap to the head of the betting market.

Leading jockey Oisin Murphy guided the horse to a triumph in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the runner sent off at 18/1 although you won’t be able to get those odds when it comes to this clash and it will be interesting to see if he can land a consecutive hat-trick.

Ametist is another horse bidding for a three-timer this season and William Haggas has his team tilted for this clash, with the horse last season when winning the Betway Handicap on 15 May when touching off a 66/1 shot to ensure he delivered at even money.

Fundamental and Grove Ferry are also trading at around the 12/1 mark with the leading horse racing bookies, with the former having landed fifth place in the competitive Jersey Stakes, while the latter was third place in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot.

The History of the Bunbury Cup

The Bunbury Cup is a historic race and you can trace the first winner back to 1962, with the event named in honour of Sir Charles Bunbury and he was someone that introduced both the 1,000 Guineas and 2,000 Guineas to Newmarket Racecourse which are now regarded as the classics.

Mine is the most successful horse in the history of the Bunbury Cup, with the runner claiming the spoils in 2002 and then returning to triumph in 2005 and 2006. Previously to this, legendary jockey Lester Piggott won this race seven times between 1966-1994, with his last success coming when riding En Attendant in 1994 after previously winning on the same horse in 1993.

This is a seven furlong handicap race which is open to horses aged three or older, with the highest-weighted horse tending to carry 9-12 or thereabouts, while the bottom weight is likely to be around 9-0 and it’s always worth looking at the final field of runners before making your UK horse racing bets.
