2023 Rockfel Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Friday, 29 September 2023

We’re excited to see which horse comes out on top when some of the leading two-year-old fillies clash swords in the Rockfel Stakes, with a number of market leaders trading at single figure racing betting odds. Shuwari is the obvious candidate although some each-way backers might prefer to look at a runner trading at bigger betting odds.

Carla’s Way is among those horses who could go well and Ylang Ylang has the advantage of winning two successive races for trainer Aidan O’Brien. Spiritual is more lightly raced although will end up being a popular each-way selection, while Soprano has raced on a number of occasions and her experience could count for something.

Shuwari is clearly the horse with the best credentials when it comes to the Rockfel Stakes, with Ollie Sangster training a runner who has secured back to back victories ahead of this seven furlong encounter. There was a victory in the Fillies’ Novices Stakes at Newbury in June and there was a further win at Sandown on 27 July.

Jockey Oisin Murphy was able to ride the horse to a slender victory on that occasion and the same rider will be on board the charge, with Carla’s Way having claimed a win in the early part of the season. That came at Doncaster in a Maiden Fillies’ Stakes before finishing eighth out of seventeen runners in the Albany Stakes.

In the William Hill Prestige Fillies’ Stakes over seven furlongs on soft ground, the runner was able to finish second to favourite Darnation by two lengths, with the Simon & Ed Crisford-trained charge likely to be trading at a similar price to Ylang Ylang. The two-year-old runs for Aidan O’Brien and underwhelmed at The Curragh last time out.

In the Moyglare Stud Stakes, the filly finished dead last out of seven runners in that Group 1 encounter, although a return to form could be on the cards here. Previously to this, there was a solid performance in the Jockey Club Of Turkey Silver Flash Stakes over seven furlongs, with the mare opening her account with a win at the Curragh.
