2023 Nell Gwyn Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Wednesday, 19 April 2023

Some of the best fillies in the land will line up in this race at Newmarket, with Coppice the horse who is going to go off favourite for this seven furlong spectacular. The horse is lightly-raced although the bookmakers are wise to the chances of a John Gosden-trained runner who could have Fairy Cross as her biggest contender according to the horse racing betting sites.

Fairy Cross is highly-rated and runs in the familiar Godolphin colours, while Girl Racer is another runner who has to be respected based on form so far. However, Fairy Cross has more form to read and the experience of the big occasion could stand her in good stead. Inner Space and Small Oasis are other contenders who are interesting from an each-way perspective.

2023 Nell Gwyn Stakes Tips

Why is Coppice the big favourite to win the 2023 Nell Gwyn Stakes? The mare has only been seen in action once on a racecourse during her career so far, with the horse all the rage when being sent off as the 10/11 favourite. That was a striking performance from the-then two-year-old and she obliged by nearly two lengths although the horse is still something of an unknown.

Fairy Cross is more of a known quantity. As with many Godolphin horses, the runner has been seen running at Meydan and she was runner-up in the Jumeirah Fillies Guineas towards the end of February, although the horse was beaten by over eight lengths and that is why she is only trading as the second favourite to win.

There was some smart form from the same horse at Goodwood back in August when winning the William Hill Prestige Fillies’ Stakes, with the horse having also impressed at Sandown Park in the previous running. Girl Racer is next in the betting and and William Haggas’ charge was able to oblige in her only run to date.

At Wolverhampton on the all-weather, Girl Racer won over seven furlongs in a novice stakes race, with Inner Space having a similar form line and there was a victory at Kempton Park back in November in a two-year-old race, with punters advised to watch the weight of money and odds movement before placing any bets.
