2023 Cornwallis Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Friday, 13 October 2023

We’ve got an exciting crop of two-year-olds who are set to compete in the Cornwallis Stakes, with Inquisitively having won last time out and William Buick is on board a runner who should be suited to the distance of five furlongs at Newmarket Racecourse. However, it might be that the Andrew Balding-trained Flora Of Bermuda could be the one to beat.

Cherry Blossom has raced plenty of time this season and we could see the Aidan O’Brien-trained charge prove to be a popular selection, with Midnight Affair representing Richard Fahey’s best chance of landing a victory. The going is set to be good to firm and it’s certainly worth looking out for extra price boosts and additional places for this encounter.

2023 Cornwallis Stakes Tips

The majority of the field lining up in the Cornwallis Stakes are regarded as having a lively chance of securing a victory in this race. Flora Of Bermuda has only won one of six outings this season, although the Andrew Balding-trained charge is among the highest-rated runners in the field, with the horse finishing second to Big Evs at Doncaster last time out.

That was in the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes, with the horse performing well over five furlongs on soft ground, while the filly won a Fillies’ Conditions Stakes at Goodwood before underwhelming in the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York Racecourse. She has plenty of opposition to beat here including Inquisitively.

The latter is trained by Kevin Philippart De Foy and there was a success last time out when obliging in the Julia Graves Roses Stakes at York Racecourse, with the horse claiming a two length victory over favourite Purosangue. There was also a solid run in the Windsor Castle Stakes at the Royal Ascot meeting where third place was managed in a big field.

Cherry Blossom should also go well and Aidan O’Brien’s charge has regularly been hitting the frame this season. This is a return to Newmarket after finishing fourth in the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes, with this six-furlong encounter for fillies perhaps proving too far for a runner who will have less distance to travel this time around.
