2023 Superlative Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 15 July 2023

Aidan O’Brien will feel confident that a horse from his stable can land a victory, with City Of Troy trading at the shortest odds to win a race which is over seven furlongs. The two-year-old has only run once and that ended in a victory, although Great Truth also boasts the same achievement and perhaps the Charlie Appleby-trained charge can land a win.

Mountain Bear comes into the race after winning last time out and is another O’Brien-trained charge to watch, while Haatem has run four times and comes into the encounter as the most experienced runner. Iberian runs for Charles Hills, with Spanish Phoenix having the class to run well for trainer Andrew Balding.

City Of Troy laid down a marker when recently claiming a victory at The Curragh in early July, with Ryan Moore riding this 6/4 favourite to a win by two and a half lengths. Over seven furlongs on good ground, there was plenty to like about this charge’s performance although we’re not sure it justifies the horse being such a short price.

Great Truth was able to make quite a statement when scoring in a race at Leicester at the end of June, with the Godolphin runner claiming a victory by five and a half lengths. Sent off as the 8/11 favourite, the horse demonstrated a strong turn of foot and is now among the favourites for this Newmarket encounter over seven furlongs.

Mountain Bear looks a more attractive proposition from an each-way point-of-view, with the runner last seen winning at the Curragh when scoring in an eighteen-runner encounter. The horse was sent off at odds of 4/1 when winning over six furlongs on good ground, with Ryan Moore giving the horse a tremendous ride on that occasion.

Haatem is one of the few runners who has an official rating and Richard Hannon has seen his horse produce some smart performances, with the runner having performed solidly in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot a few weeks ago. Finishing in fifth place at odds of 28/1 implies that the horse has solid credentials and the runner might be able to perform well.
