2023 Mile Handicap Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 15 July 2023

There’s a cracking Newmarket racecard this Saturday, with the bet365 Mile Handicap taking pride of place and we might see as many as twenty runners competing over the distance of one mile. The betting market suggests that it could be advantageous to select a handful of horses against the field or consider an each-way wager on the market.

Dragon Icon and Havana Blue are among the front runners to land a victory, with Quantum Impact also featuring for trainer Ralph Beckett and there has been a win recorded this season. Royal Dubai has also been successful this season and it will be interesting to see how Glenfinnan performs on his seasonal debut.

Dragon Icon will return to the track after last running at Cologne, with the horse finishing fifth out of nine runners in Germany. The runner was sent off at 3/1 in the German 2,000 Guineas although the horse was outpaced over a mile and will now return to the track in the hope of staying the course better at Newmarket.

Havana Blue has struck gold in consecutive outings, winning on both Newmarket courses recently. There was a success in the Aspall Premier Cru Handicap over seven furlongs on 20 May, while there was a 10/11 success over seven furlongs on the July course and perhaps this is the horse to back for this encounter.

Quantum Impact turns out for trainer Ralph Beckett and the three-year-old has shown some smart form including a win at York, with the runner obliging in the Royal Yorkshire Regiment Handicap over one mile. However, the horse finished well down the order in the Britannia Stakes and might need to find some improvement to win.

Royal Dubai has shown some excellent form since switching stables after wind surgery, with Marco Botti having seen his charge win on the all-weather at Chelmsford at the end of May. The horse then finished second in a handicap at Chester over seven and a half furlongs, with less than a length between the runner and eventual winner Saxon King.
