2023 Marygate Fillies Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Friday, 19 May 2023

Friday’s racecard at York Racecourse begins with the Marygate Fillies Stakes, with Persian Dreamer heading the betting in what is sure to be a hammer and tongs tussle down the straight. Over five furlongs, there is no hiding place and there are several horses who come into this race off the back of a victory including Got To Love A Grey and Beenham.

Dorothy Lawrence also has claims and there is going to be lots of betting interest in a competitive heat at the Knavesmire, with Persian Dreamer having only had one outing so far in a relatively short career, although the juvenile currently remains rock solid in the latest betting and looks like the one to beat.

2023 Marygate Fillies Stakes Tips

This is a two-year-old race which always carries with it a level of unpredictability considering that the runners and riders are lightly raced. Persian Dreamer is trading as favourite and much depends on whether the Dominic Ffrench Davis-trained charge can repeat the level of performance that saw her win the recent British EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes at Newmarket.

On that occasion on 19 April, the 11/4 shot was able to claim a victory of over three lengths against Dorothy Lawrence who will once again be lining up here. She was able to win on good to soft ground, with jockey Kevin Stott once again on board although there are plenty of lively contenders who can’t be discounted.

Got To Love A Grey and Dorothy Lawrence both come from the yard of KR Burke and it’s interesting that jockey Ryan Moore has chosen to ride the latter. That second placed effort behind Persian Dreamer means that she might again be in the mix, while the former is trading at a shorter price and recently claimed a victory on soft ground at Nottingham.

Beenham and Gaiden can’t also be discounted and currently trade at a similar price, with the former having won at Goodwood in early May. Rod Millman will hope that his filly can be even more progressive at the Knavesmire, while Gaiden was sent off as the 3/1 favourite in a recent outing at Windsor before being beaten into second place.
