2021 Fillies Mile Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Friday, 08 October 2021

The Fillies’ Mile has been in operation since 1973, with Newmarket Racecourse hosting a race which is sponsored by bet365. This is a race which is open to two-year-old fillies and the purse is generally around £400,000 to the winner, with this horse racing having originally being held at Ascot.

This UK horse race achieved Group 1 status in 1990 and this was added to the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series in 2008. This meant that any winner between 2008 and 2012 led to an automatic invitation to compete in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

From 2011, Newmarket Racecourse has hosted the Fillies’ Mile and trainer Henry Cecil has scored six different victories in this race, while the same can be said of jockey Frankie Dettori who has half a dozen wins and this includes White Moonstone and Lyric Of Light.

Who Are the bookies Favourites for 2021 Fillies’ Mile?

Inspiral looks to be the horse to beat and the John Gosden-trained two-year-old who kicked off her career by landing a victory in the Close Brothers Maiden Fillies' Stakes, while the horse then obliged at even money when winning the British Stallion Studs EBF Star Stakes which gives her some decent credentials for this clash.

However, Inspiral could still be relatively green after running only twice, with Oscula lining up in the race and she has more experience on her side. George Boughey saw his charge line up in the Prix du Calvados at Deauville although the horse fell short as the 7/5 favourite after previously performing well to win the Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing at the same track.

The horse also ran well when finishing third in the Group 3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and we can’t help but feel that the experience will help her run into the frame.

Agartha and Majestic Glory Among Race Favourites

Agartha doesn’t have an official rating right now, although the Joseph O’Brien-trained runner is among the betting favourites to win the 2021 Fillies’ Mile, with the horse recently landing a victory in the Alpha Centauri Debutante Stakes as the 4/1 co-favourite and this was a two-length win at The Curragh.

Previously to this, Declan McDonogh had rode her to a 16/1 triumph and this was in a Group 3 race at Leopardstown, with Juncture and Prettiest among the horses who were beaten in that showdown, while there had previously been a strong performance in the Fillies Maiden where the horse finished second.

Majestic Glory is actually bidding for a consecutive hat-trick of wins and the latest of these was a very credible 5/1 success in the Group 3 Solera Stakes, with Andrew Balding now saddling her up for the 2021 Fillies’ Mile, with the horse previously winning a Novice Stakes as the 11/8 favourite.
