2024 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 05 October 2024

Zoulu Chief is bidding for a consecutive hat-trick of victories, with the two-year-old having shown some flashy performances in a short career to date. The racing betting sites think that the favourite is by far the most likely winner of this Newmarket encounter, although Woodhay Wonder is a good viable selection at a bigger price.

Lambert has also been a regular winner as a two-year-old this season and is available at a backable each-way price, especially if you are able to secure extra places. The rest of the field are trading at bigger betting odds, although Midnite Runner and Rogue Enforcer could be capable of running into a place for their connections.

Zoulu Chief has the potential to outclass the field when it comes to the Tattersalls October Auction Stakes, with Heather Main training a charge who has landed successive wins. After performing well as a 33/1 shot in an Irish Nursery Handicap at Goodwood, the horse then obliged at 28/1 at Windsor in the middle of August.

Better was to follow at York when the bookmakers started to respect the horse’s chances more and Zoulu Chief was able to oblige with a victory at 15/2. That was over six furlongs on good to firm ground, with the horse likely to have softer conditions with which to contend when it comes to this upcoming race.

Woodhay Wonder has collected two wins for trainer Tom Ward this season and the latest of these was in the £100,000 Tattersalls Somerville Auction Stakes at the end of August, demonstrating that the two-year-old can perform well at Newmarket. The filly was also successful when running at Newbury at the end of June.

Beyond the first two in the betting, the rest of the field are all trading at double figure odds. Lambert could go well for trainer George Boughey and has racked up three wins this season, with the horse quickly returning to the track after a recent third-placed finish at Newmarket. The horse ran out of stamina over a mile but might be suited to the shorter trip.
