2023 Thoroughbred Challenge Stakes Tips

Audience is almost certain to be sent off as favourite to win the 2023 Thoroughbred Challenge Stakes, with the four-year-old having notched consecutive runner-up performances in recent weeks. John & Thady Gosden’s charge finished second to Sandrine in the Betfred Park Stakes after a surprise runner-up finish in the City of York Stakes.

The horse outran his odds of 20/1 to finish second behind favourite Kinross and could go well at Newmarket, with Shouldvebeenaring carrying two pounds less in this race over seven furlongs. The three-year-old is bidding for a first win of the season, with the horse most recently seen producing a solid performance at Longchamp.

In the Qatar Prix de la Foret over seven furlongs, the 35/1 chance was given a tremendous spin by Sean Levey over seven furlongs at the Paris track, with that come after stunning many racing fans by delivering a runner up spot at big odds of 50/1. That performance was in the Betfair Sprint Cup Stakes, where only a neck denied a victory.

Chindit could also fare well and the five-year-old enjoyed back-to-back wins at Haydock and Sandown this season. The former triumph came over one mile where the Richard Hannon-trained runner was able to beat favourite Light Infantry by over two lengths. Then came a success in a listed race at Sandown Park over one mile on soft ground.
