2023 Connaught Access Flooring Handicap Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Wednesday, 19 April 2023

We’re looking forward to the Connaught Access Flooring Handicap on Wednesday 19 April, with Supreme King regarded as the horse with the biggest probability of victory. However, it’s a wide open encounter for this contest over one mile, with the weights likely to have a bearing on the outcome and there are horses such as Cobalt Blue and Burdett Road among the favourites.

There could be as many as fifteen horses lining up to race in this encounter which is due to go off at 1.50pm on 19 April, with many horses trading at a similar price and punters should look out for each-way value by virtue of securing the biggest number of places. Elwasme and Lion Kingdom are both interesting runners at larger prices.

2023 Connaught Access Flooring Handicap Tips

Who wins the Connaught Access Flooring Handicap? It’s a race without an obvious betting favourite and Supreme King is the horse that catches the eye, with the bookies anticipating that this charge has been favourably weighted. Going off 9-7, perhaps he has a chance of staking a claim and there was a second-placed finish at Nottingham in early April.

Connemara Coast was fifth last time out although Richard Hughes will be confident of a big showing from his three-year-old and the horse might be capable of improving on that performance at Lingfield Park. Perhaps Cobalt Blue can go third time lucky after consecutive second-placed finishes in his previous showings.

Roger Varian is an astute trainer and the horse was beaten as a 5/4 favourite in a Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton, with the same outcome happening when running at Epsom Racecourse although perhaps the handicapper has given the charge a favourable mark. Burdett Road is also a horse that can’t be ignored and it was a winning performance last time out.

On the all-weather at Lingfield Park in early March, there was a victory in a Maiden Stakes where Michael Bell’s runner was able to oblige as the 13/8 favourite and there was also an eye-catching performance from Lion Kingdom last time out when the horse won and he managed to beat Cobalt Blue into second place.
