2023 The 1351 Turf Sprint Betting Odds at Riyadh racecourse

Saturday, 25 February 2023

The Saudi Cup Undercard looks really attractive and this includes the 1351 Turf Sprint, with a Japanese raider potentially going to steal the show in this encounter. Songline was the winner of this race twelve months ago and will now return to the Riyadh racetrack in order to defend his crown, with Toru Hayashi’s runner having previously secured a victory in the Yasuda Kinen.

There are other Japanese entrants that have a lively chance and that’s especially the case with Bathrat Leon, with this horse having won the 2022 Godolphin Mile. Lauda Sion is another horse among the betting favourites and Takashi Saito will have high hopes for a horse that needs to rediscover the sort of form that had him winning principle races in 2021.

1351 Turf Sprint Betting Tips

Creative Force is the horse racing betting favourite to win the 1351 Turf Sprint, with the runner last seen running at the Breeders’ Cup meeting. The Godolphin horse looks to have the right sort of profile to land a victory in this race, having finished third in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. There was also a notable performance in 2021 when winning the British Champions Sprint at Ascot.

Songline was able to triumph in this race twelve months ago, with the five-year-old more than capable of retaining his crown. A year ago, Christophe-Patrice Lemaire was able to steer the runner to a success by a neck ahead of Casa Creed, while it’s interesting to note that Happy Romance was also close behind and will line up for the 2023 heat.

Similarly, Lauda Sion will return for another crack of the whip and this Japanese raider was a high-level performer at 20/1 twelve months ago. Takashi Saito’s charge is trading at a shorter price this time around, although Bathrat Leon is certainly our idea of an each-way bet and that is especially if you can secure extra places on this horse race.

The five-year-old finished fourth in the Hanshin Cup on 24 December, with the horse sent off at 48/10 on that occasion. The horses all landed in a heap over seven furlongs at Hanshin and perhaps we will see more from a runner that finished third in the Tokyo Chunichi Sports Hai Musashino Stakes over one mile, with the runners and riders set to battle it out.
