2024 Classic Trial Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Friday, 26 April 2024

Arabian Crown has been installed as the short priced favourite to claim the winners’ pot in the bet365 Classic Trial, with the horse having been impressive in his past few races. It would be little surprise to find the Godolphin charge come home in first place, although Macduff has the opportunity to run a big race.

The Ralph Beckett-trained runner makes his seasonal debut and was victorious last season, while War Rooms could also go well for trainer Owen Burrows. Aidan O’Brien will hope that Portland can build on a recent second-placed finish and Ryan Moore will be on board a runner who looks a backable each-way price.

Arabian Crown looks the likely winner of the bet365 Classic Trial and he will be bidding for a fourth successive victory when lining up at Sandown Park. Charlie Appleby saddles a runner who was triumphant at Newmarket when running in the Zetland Stakes last October when fending off the challenge of three other horses.

Previously to this came a victory at Salisbury Racecourse when the horse claimed a win at Salisbury against six other runners, with this coming after a success at Sandown in July. However, there are some viable contenders to go up against this three-year-old and that includes Macduff who finished fourth out of nine runners last time out.

Sent off at odds of 12/1 in the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes, the runner acquitted himself well over a mile when losing to Ghostwriter, Al Musmak and Capulet, with the horse previously running into second place behind Al Musmak in a one mile encounter at Haydock Park after previously winning at Newmarket.

War Rooms is trained by Owen Burrows and the horse finished third out of nine runners when turning out at Doncaster in the Betfred Flying Scotsman Stakes, with the charge sent off as the 2/1 favourite on that occasion. Previously to this came a Novice Stakes triumph at Doncaster Racecourse towards the end of July.

Arrest could be all the rage for the bet365 Classic Trial, with the three-year-old having been impressive thus far and there have been two victories to date. The first of these came at Sandown in early August, with a Maiden Stakes success coming over one mile on good to firm ground, while it was simple enough to win at Ffos Las.

Then came a tougher encounter at Saint-Cloud when the charge ran in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud and the 23/10 favourite was touched off by a head. That was over one mile and two furlongs on heavy ground and perhaps Arrest will be better suited to firmer ground, although there is Flying Honours who has to be respected for this race.

The Godolphin horse was successful on three occasions last season and Charlie Appleby saddled the charge to victory in the Zetland Stakes in early October when sent off as the 10/11 favourite. William Buick will once again be on board a horse who did suffer a blip when losing as the big odds-on favourite in the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes.

Continuous has won both of his races so far during a fledgling season, with the three-year-old having scored at The Curragh and Saint-Cloud last term. The former success was in a maiden over seven furlongs, while the latter was achieved in the Prix Thomas Bryon Jockey Club de Turquie when the horse was sent off as the 2/1 favourite.
