2024 Suffolk Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 04 May 2024

Look out for price boosts and extra places when it comes to the William Hill Suffolk Stakes, with the majority of horses trading at double figure betting odds. Torito is the highest-rated horse in the field and it will be interesting to see how the runner performs on a seasonal debut, with Liberty Lane and Dutch Decoy also among the favourites.

Theoryofeverything, Bill Silvers and Bopedro are the other horses who could be lively contenders, with Hafeet Alain, King Lear and Lion Of War also in with a decent chance of landing a victory. This should be a competitive tussle over one mile and one furlong, with the going set to be good to soft at Newmarket Racecourse.

2024 Suffolk Stakes Tips

We’re looking forward to the William Hill Suffolk Stakes where there are any number of potential winners when it comes to this race. It comes down to a quality mix of speed and stamina, with Torito having shone at times last season and the last showing saw the horse finish fourth in the Hampton Court Stakes in a field of sixteen runners.

Previously to this came a win at Epsom Racecourse where the horse was able to win the Lester Piggott Handicap over one mile and two furlongs, although the betting market outlines that any number of runners could compete well. Liberty Lane is prominent in the betting and the horse was last seen finishing midfield at Doncaster.

That came in the Lincoln Handicap where the 5/1 shot delivered an underwhelming performance, with Dutch Decoy running for Charlie Johnston and the seven-year-old has more experience than several of the other leading contenders. The horse was last seen finishing second at Newmarket last month.

Theoryofeverything was fourth in a recent encounter and the four-year-old could go well for trainer David O’Meara, with that performance coming in a field of seventeen runners. It was Hafeet Alain who was the winner of that race and the Ed Walker-trained charge could be the best bet of all, especially at such big odds.

Jimi Hendrix ran very recently and it will be interesting whether the Ralph Beckett-trained runner is able to secure another win so quickly after this success. Sent off at odds of 9/2, the horse was able to land the spoils in the Spring Cup Handicap and beat favourite Lattam into second, with the latter trading as the 2/1 favourite for success.

King Of Conquest is a four-year-old who has previously run well in Bahrain although it’s difficult to see how the horse will fare back on English soil, with Charlie Appleby’s charge having won the Anchorman Cup over one mile and one furlong. It will be a different type of test for a horse who won a handicap race at Wolverhampton back at the end of November.

Empirestateofmind has had a string of runner-up positions recently and perhaps that is a concern for any punter looking to back the John Quinn-trained charge, although the flip side of the argument is that the horse is capable of running into a place on a frequent basis. In the Close Brothers Handicap at Newbury on 18 April, the horse was narrowly touched off over a mile.

Majestic was able to hit the frame in a big field at Doncaster, with the Jack Channon-trained runner finishing just three lengths behind eventual winner Migration in the Pertemps Network Lincoln over one mile on heavy ground. However, we can’t rule out a big run considering the 25/1 success in the bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap.
