2024 bet365 Mile Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Friday, 26 April 2024

There are eight runners lining up in the bet365 Mile and many of them have a lively chance of victory. John & Thady Gosden saddle Lord North and the eight-year-old has already enjoyed a decorated career, with William Buick on board a charge who was disappointing last time out but could go well this time around.

Nostrum is a younger adversary who returns to the track after a long absence and Sir Michael Stoute will be hopeful there’s a strong showing from this charge, while Charyn won for trainer Roger Varian last time out. Poker Face hasn’t been out of the first two in each of his previous five races and also has claims.

Lord North has enjoyed plenty of successes during an illustrious career and the eight-year-old could go off favourite when it comes to the bet365 Mile. The John & Thady Gosden-trained charge was last seen finishing midfield at Meydan in March and this came after a second-placed finish out of six runners at Southwell.

The horse was the winner of the Dubai Turf in the previous year and that came after a success in the Winter Derby Stakes, although some punters might instead prefer the chances of Nostrum who is open to more improvement as a four-year-old. Sir Michael Stoute saddles a runner who will bid to bounce back from a disappointing showing at York Racecourselast time out.

Previously to this, the horse was second in the Group 3 Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes over a mile when sent off as the 4/6 favourite, although that came after a victory in the Sir Henry Cecil Stakes at Newmarket. It will be interesting to see which of the above runners goes off as favourite and it could be worth following the money.

Charyn has the potential to go well for Roger Varian and there was a success for this horse last time out, with the four-year-old able to claim a win at Doncaster when obliging at the Yorkshire track in March. The horse was previously third out of seven runners in the William Hill Celebration Mile Stakes and there could be more to come.

My Prospero is the horse that they all have to beat according to the latest horse racing odds. The four-year-old comes into this encounter boasting some smart form, with the runner having three wins under his belt already. The horse was sent off at odds of 22/1 in last year’s Qipco Champion Stakes and outran his odds to finish third behind Bay Bridge and Adayar.

Back in July, there was a success in France when the horse bagged a win in the Prix Eugene Adam, with this coming after a third-placed finish in the St James’s Palace Stakes. That came after a win in the Coral Heron Stakes over one mile, with the runner looking a rock solid proposition although there are other lively contenders.

Light Infantry is an interesting contender and David Simcock’s charge has been running in high class contests, with the latest outing coming in Australia. Running in the Golden Eagle at Rosehill, the horse finished sixth to get a share of the spoils and that came after two runner-up performances at Deauville.

Laurel has been in the winners’ enclosure on more than one occasion, with the four-year-old having produced a smart performance when winning on the all-weather at Kempton Racecourse. That was in a Fillies’ Stakes race when being sent off as the odds-on favourite, with a second placed finish in the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket back in October.
