2023 Scurry Stakes Betting Odds at Sandown Park racecourse

Saturday, 17 June 2023

Blink and you’ll miss the Scurry Stakes, with this five furlong encounter forming part of Saturday’s Sandown Park racecard. Great State has been racking up the wins for trainer Richard Fahey and looks set to go off favourite for this short distance race, while Tajalla has also been performing well for Roger Varian and has two wins under the belt.

Perdika comes next in the betting and the George Boughey-trained three-year-old can’t be easily discounted, with the rest of the field trading at much bigger betting odds. It could be all about identifying a runner at a bigger price who is able to run into the frame and we recommend looking out for extra places when it comes to each-way wagers.

It could be all about narrowing down the field when it comes to the 2023 Scurry Stakes at Sandown Park, with punters able to create a shortlist and still potentially make a profit. Great State has been recording victories since scoring at Southwell in March, with that all-weather success followed up by a win at Thirsk in early May.

More recently, there was a success in a Listed Race at York Racecourse, with the Richard Fahey-trained horse able to steer the horse to a two and a half length victory and Oisin Murphy will once again be on board a competitor who could take all the beating according to the best horse racing betting odds, although it’s a big field lining up.

Tajalla runs for Roger Varian and the three-year-old is yet to taste defeat, with the horse sent off as even money favourite in a five furlong encounter at Hamilton. That came after a Novice Stakes victory over five furlongs at Newmarket, with David Egan likely to give the runner a decent spin over the same distance in a bid to preserve a 100% record.

Perdika has the highest rating out of any horse in the field, with the three-year-old fresh from a recent win and this was recorded at Chantilly, with the runner winning the Prix Marchand d’Or over six furlongs on good ground. This came after a second-placed finish in the Prix de Saint-Georges at Longchamp Racecourse and that was a Group 3 outing.
