2023 Coral Charge Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 08 July 2023

Michael Appleby will hope to return to the winners’ enclosure when saddling Annaf, with the four-year-old among the favourites for the 2023 Coral Charge. The horse was last seen finishing third although Marshman has respect from the bookies after a solid outing at Royal Ascot, while Charles Hills has a couple of lively chances in the race.

Hills will hope that Equilateral can run into the places in Saturday’s opening race on the Sandown racecard, with Equality scoring for the same handler last time out and there could be more to come from the Clive Cox-trained Get Ahead, with the four-year-old having a first and second place to his name in the previous two outings.

2023 Coral Charge Tips

It’s going to be a fast run race when the horses line up for the Coral Charge at Sandown Park. We’re excited to see which runner is able to triumph over the short distance, with Annaf having run a strong race when finishing third in the King’s Stand Stakes. That was a Group One encounter at Royal Ascot when the horse was able to perform well despite odds of 50/1.

The King’s Stand Stakes could act as an important barometer when it comes to which horse might run well here, with Equilateral having also outrun his betting odds at 33/1 to finish fifth in that particular encounter. Marshman was more fancied by the bookies for that encounter when running into seventh at betting odds of 10/1.

Therefore, the front three in the betting might all be closely matched and that is reflected in the betting odds, although Get Ahead has the ability to claim the spoils and the four-year-old performed well at Chantilly at the beginning of June. The Clive Cox-trained runner was narrowly beaten into second place in the Prix du Gros-Chene.

The mare had previously performed well to win a listed race over six furlongs at Haydock Park, with Desert Cop the talented three-year-old in the encounter who was sixth in the King’s Stand Stakes and there could be more to come from a runner who was sent off at betting odds of 33/1, with a second-placed finish coming in the Carnarvon Stakes.
