2023 Atalanta Stakes Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 02 September 2023

There are going to be sixteen runners lining up in the Virgin Bet Atalanta Stakes on Saturday 2 September, with the bookies struggling to separate the market leaders in terms of betting odds. Coppice has bagged a couple of wins this season and we might see a return to the winners’ enclosure for the John & Thady Gosden-trained charge.

Heredia was also recently successful and the Richard Hannon-trained runner could benefit from that extra year of experience, with Midnight Mile going for Richard Fahey and this charge also has one of the highest ratings in the field. Queen For You and Potapova are other lively contenders in the field.

2023 Atalanta Stakes Tips

Coppice will be ridden by Kieran Shoemark in the Virgin Bet Atalanta Stakes, with the horse bidding to land a third victory of the season. There was a fairly facile win in a Novice Stakes at Newcastle on the all-weather, although the real highlight victory was in the Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot over the distance of one mile.

The horse stepped up in class to run in the Falmouth Stakes on the July course at Newmarket, finishing a credible fifth out of eight horses over one mile. However, Heredia has solid credentials of his own and there was a stunning victory in the Dick Hern Stakes where the runner was able to win by nearly four lengths.

Midnight Mile is trained by Richard Fahey and the horse was impressive enough when finishing third in the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes last time out. Finishing behind favourite Al Aasy was no disgrace, with the three-year-old finishing ahead of several other quality runners and that came after a win in the Fillies’ Stakes at York.

Queen For You began her season with a victory in a Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Ascot back in May, with the horse then heading to York to finish second in a Fillies Stakes. More recently, the mare finished fifth out of a field of six in the Coronation Stakes before finishing midfield in the Lyric Fillies’ Stakes when sent off as the 16/5 favourite.
