2024 Dahlia Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Sunday, 05 May 2024

There are four horses who are trading at single figure betting odds for this race and the other quartet of runners also stand a chance of landing a victory. Running Lion is the one trading as favourite and produced some solid displays at Ascot and Newmarket last year, with Silver Lady having been victorious last time out.

The latter runs for Charlie Appleby and could be a lively contender this time around, with Caernarfon returning for a seasonal debut and the Jack Channon-trained runner is one of the highest-rated horses in the field. Stay Alert could also be one for the shortlist and the five-year-old has the potential to win based on his rating.

2024 Dahlia Stakes Tips

The William Hill Dahlia Stakes is a Group 2 encounter where Running Lion has been installed as the favourite to win, with the four-year-old having last run at Ascot back in October. Sent off at 16/1 in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes, the horse managed to claim a credible eighth position at odds of 16/1.

Previously to this was a third-placed finish out of eleven runners at Newmarket in the Princess Royal Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Stakes, with Time Lock and Sweet Memories proving too strong on that occasion. However, there are plenty of viable contenders and Silver Lady was successful on her previous outing.

The horse was triumphant at Meydan back in January when beating seven other rivals including English Rose in the Cape Verdi race over one mile, with the runner able to beat the favourite although that came after a disappointing showing in the Pride Stakes at Newmarket, with Caernarfon possibly a better each-way shout.

The four-year-old runs for trainer Jack Channon and the horse is bidding for the first win in six attempts. There was a sixth placed finish at Salisbury which came after an underwhelming run at Goodwood. The horse performed admirably to register sixth place in the Hampton Court Stakes over one mile and two furlongs.
