2023 July Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Thursday, 13 July 2023

We’ve got an exciting race between some talented two-year-olds on Thursday, with Malc, Mountain Bear and Chief Mankato among the leading contenders for the Bahrain Turf Club July Stakes. This two-year-old encounter actually looks to be a wide open one, with Lake Forest another runner who can’t be discounted on form displayed so far.

There is naturally limited form which can be read based on achievements so far, with many of the fourteen runners having a lively each-way chance and several of them come into this horse race off the back of a recent victory. Aidan O’Brien might be able to strike with a couple of lively runners including Edwardian and His Majesty.

2023 July Stakes Tips

Richard Fahey will be searching for some winners at the Newmarket July meeting and perhaps he will be victorious with Malc in the Bahrain Turf Club July Stakes. The two-year-old has achieved a victory and a second placing from two races so far, with the runner sent off as a 66/1 no-hoper in the Norfolk Stakes before being able to secure a runner-up spot.

Randomly, the horse was actually beaten by 150/1 American raider Valiant Force, although the fact that Malc beat the rest of the field could stand the runner in good stead. There had previously been a Novice Stakes win at Carlisle although this is a tough assignment and Mountain Bear has a victory to his name.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained horse is just one of several from the same stable and claimed an impressive win at The Curragh to score in an Irish Maiden, with the horse obliging at 4/1 on that occasion. Chief Mankato runs for trainer Charles Hills and came through to land a success in his only outing at Windsor when obliging at 18/1.

Lake Forest and Purosangue also come into the race after landing a victory last time out. The former runs for trainer William Haggas and won a Novice Stakes over six furlongs at Haydock Park, while the latter was able to oblige at the same course over a five furlong distance and that was a four-length victory which could be repeated.
