2023 City Walls Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 15 July 2023

We’re looking forward to seeing whether Regional can land yet another victory at the Knavesmire, with this being a listed race and there are lots of lively contenders in the City Walls Stakes. Equilateral might well take his chances and the eight-year-old has so far been falling short this season when it comes to securing a victory.

Queen Me will be sent out by trainer Kevin Ryan and could have each-way claims in this race, while Silky Wilkie has multiple entries but could be sent out to run in this encounter and a trip of five furlongs might suit the horse well. Great State and Chipstead are also contenders and the bookies will be offering extra places here.

Regional has been a strong performer for trainer Edward Bethell and the five-year-old is now bidding for a seasonal hat-trick. We’ve seen the horse claim wins at York and Haydock, with the former victory coming in the Lindum York Handicap over five furlongs on good ground. More recently, there was another success in the Sky Bet Achilles Stakes.

Equilateral is a talented runner who lines up for trainer Charles Hills, with the eight-year-old having served up back to back runner-up performances before landing a fifth placed spot in the King’s Stand Stakes. There was only four lengths between the horse and eventual winner Bradsell and there could be more to come.

Queen Me could be set to run a blinder and there was plenty to like about a sixth-placed finish in the Commonwealth Cup, with the horse sent off at 28/1 for this six furlong encounter. There was only three lengths between the runner and eventual winner Shaquille in what was a close finish, with more to potentially come here.

Silky Wilkie is a four-year-old who may choose to run elsewhere but has to stand a lively chance of success, with Great State having claimed back to back wins this season. The horse ran to victory at Thirsk and the Richard Fahey-trained runner obliged over five furlongs before a win in the Westow Stakes over the same distance.
