2023 Darley Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 14 October 2023

We’re excited to see which horse comes out on top when it comes to the 2023 Darley Stakes, with Highland Avenue running for trainer Charlie Appleby who will hope to have a number of successes on Saturday’s card. There are six horses trading at single figure racing odds and that includes Spirit Dancer who has enjoyed a string of wins.

The horse looks to be a backable each-way price, with Real Gain having also secured a number of wins and we might also see Regal Reality attract plenty of support in the market. Knight has back to back runner up achievements to recommend him and the three-year-old could be capable of the kind of improvement that will see him go close.

2023 Darley Stakes Tips

There are several lively contenders when it comes to the 2023 Darley Stakes, with Highland Avenue among them. The five-year-old can’t be easily discounted despite falling relatively short in the bet365 Stakes at Newbury on 22 July, with the Charlie Appleby-trained charge having been sent off as 7/4 favourite before finishing fourth.

Previously to this, there was a fourth-placed finish at the Royal Ascot meeting when placing in the Wolferton Stakes, although perhaps at least one horse will prove too strong this time around. Knight could be the horse in shining armour for punters and the three-year-old is saddled by Simon & Ed Crisford who will have high hopes of a victory.

The young horse was second by a head when missing out to Chindit in the Chasemore Farm Fortune Stakes at Sandown Park in late September, with the horse also clinching another runner-up spot when running home behind Angel Bleu in the William Hill Celebration Miles Stakes over one mile on soft ground.

Regal Reality has landed just one win from five outings this season although the horse was prominent when finishing second out of six runners in the Joel Stakes at Newmarket. It was no mean feat to be runner-up against favourite Mutasaabeq, with the 16/1 shot only missing out by a head in this race.
