2022 Old Rowley Cup Handicap Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Friday, 07 October 2022

We’ve got an exciting race on the cards on Friday 11 October, with a maximum of twenty-five horses competing in the bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap at Newmarket.

This Class 2 encounter takes place over one mile and four furlongs, with trainer William Haggas likely to be feeling confident due to the fact that he has the best two horses in the race according to the latest odds.

Monica Sheriff has won her previous four races and deserves to be at the head of the betting for this encounter, with the horse having done nothing but impress since triumphing at Haydock in early June.

There was a decent sized lay-off after that victory before striking a victory at Ffos Las and there have been further wins on the all-weather at Newcastle before the most impressive win at Goodwood.

Monica Sheriff is currently trading at odds of 5/1, although this is a wide open encounter and Haggas will also be responsible for the highly-rated Hamish who hasn’t been out of the top three in his four outings this season.

The three-year-old is trading at 7/1 to win the race and it will be 48 days since he last featured at a racecourse, with that sort of rest period potentially likely to be to the horse’s benefit.

There was also plenty to like about victory in the Sky Bet Melrose Handicap, with the horse obliging at odds of 7/1 and beating favourite First In Line into second place.

Incredible as it sounds, William Haggas could have the 1-2-3 in this race by virtue of the fact that Faylaq is entered into the race, with the horse off a high weight at 9-6 although there was a recent win on the all-weather at Kempton.

Some will regard Battle Of Paradise as a good each-way prospect at odds of 8/1, with Sir Mark Johnston hoping to see his charge run as well as he’s done this season, with two runner-up placings being followed by a victory.

Derevo is also an experienced campaigner, running once last year as a two-year-old before four further outings this season and three of the races have seen the horse triumph.

The horse claimed the spoils on the all-weather at Chelmsford and then returned to the winners’ enclosure to land victories at Pontefract and Newcastle.
