2023 Duke of York Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Wednesday, 17 May 2023

There could be as many as eleven horses that are set to compete in the 2023 Duke of York Clipper Stakes, with Highfield Princess trained by John Quinn and capable of running a big race over a short distance. Jockey Jason Hart will be on board a runner who merits obvious respect, although The Astrologist could also run a big race for jockey Ryan Moore.

Charlie Appleby has a leading contender in the form of Creative Force, with Marshman and Azure Blue also boasting wins on their last appearances. Indeed, there aren’t too many of the eleven runners who can be completely discounted and we’re looking forward to seeing how the favourite performs.

2023 Duke of York Clipper Stakes Tips

Highfield Princess has the potential to be something special and that is reflected in the latest betting odds for the Duke of York Clipper Stakes. The horse was last seen at the Breeders’ Cup meeting in Keeneland where she was able to run a credible fourth place in the Turf Spring after being sent off at betting odds of 341/100.

While there wasn’t enough pace in her legs to challenge on that occasion, the race came after three successive victories at Deauville, York and Curragh. Sent off as the 5/4 favourite in the Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Flying Five Stakes, she was able to oblige by over three lengths, while that came after a win in the Nunthorpe Stakes.

However, the betting market has a wide open look about it and that means The Astrologist could come into the reckoning, with Leon & Troy Corstens having saddled a runner that performed really well at Meydan in his last race. In the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint, the horse ran impressively at odds of 20/1 only to be beaten by bigger outsider Danyah.

Creative Force was able to claim a victory in the Pertemps Network Conditions Stakes when obliging as the 4/6 favourite and the Charlie Appleby-trained runner could be a promising each-way selection, with Marshman another horse that won his last outing and that came in the Group 3 Prix Sigy over five and a half furlongs on 17 April.

Bookies Can’t Work Out 2021 Duke of York Stakes Favourite

The betting is wide open for the 2021 Duke of York Stakes and if you compare the latest horse racing odds, you will find that there are lots of horses trading at around the 6/1 mark which is great from an each-way basis.

Dream of Dreams is trading as favourite to win this Group 2 encounter, with the Sir Michael Stoute-trained charge having enjoyed an impressive 2020 which saw the seven-year-old win the Betfair Sprint Cup at Haydock Racecourse on 5 September.

However, the horse then ran below par to finish eighth in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes and it will be interesting to see if the horse has progressed as we line up for the 2021 flat season.

Art Power, Oxted and Starman Betting Favourites to Win

Tim Easterby could have a cracking four-year-old on his hands in the form of Art Power, with the horse finishing a credible fourth place in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes, with the horse not far away in the Betfair Sprint Stakes and it might be that his age will work to his benefit.

Oxted runs for trainer Roger Teal and the horse recently went off as odds-on favourite in the bet365 Abernant Stakes which was a Group 3 encounter although Summerghand was the horse to beat him and some punters might be wary of piling in at the prices.

Starman was off colour when running in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes, with the horse having previously won the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Garrowby Stakes at York Racecourse and perhaps we should read plenty into that performance when weighing up the chances of the Ed Walker-trained charge.
