2024 Musidora Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Wednesday, 15 May 2024

There is a field of seven competing over a distance of one mile, two and a half furlongs on Wednesday, with the Musidora Stakes a Group 3 encounter where Friendly Soul is the worthy favourite. It could well be the case that the favourite proves too strong for the opposition, although there are three other horses trading at single figure odds.

Classical Song is capable of running a big race for Ralph Beckett and returns for a seasonal debut, while Mayfair has secured back to back runner-up spots for Aidan O’Brien. Charlie Johnston has Francophone lining up and the three-year-old could benefit from an each-way betting perspective, with Secret Satire not without a chance.

Friendly Soul could be the pick of the three-year-olds when it comes to the Musidora Stakes, with the horse breaking his duck on the all-weather at Kempton back in December before returning to the winners’ enclosure at Newmarket in May. The horse was able to win the Pretty Polly Stakes over one mile and two furlongs.

This was a victory by just over a length when fending off odds-on favourite Kalpana, with the first win coming in a maiden fillies’ stakes over a mile at Kempton Park. Classical Song hasn’t raced for over 200 days although this highly-rated charge certainly has a chance and turned in some impressive displays as a two-year-old.

The horse was last seen finishing fourth out of eight runners in a competitive race at Newmarket in October, with this coming in the bet365 Fillies’ Mile. This came after a win at Sandown in early September when landing a three-length win over seven furlongs, with Mayfair certainly meriting respect from the layers too.

Aidan O’Brien trains a runner who was a runner-up at Dundalk in April when finishing close behind Star Magnolia, with the 8/15 favourite narrowly falling short over seven furlongs. This came after the same fate befell the same runner over seven furlongs on heavy ground at The Curragh and perhaps we will see the horse go one better.

We’re eager to see how Infinite Cosmos performs on Wednesday when lining up against seven other rivals in the Duke of York Clipper Stakes. The three-year-old was sent off as the 8/11 favourite in the Maiden Fillies’ Stakes at Newmarket, with this taking place over one mile and two furlongs. It was a convincing win for the filly by over four lengths.

Previously to this, the horse finished second in the Maiden Fillies’ Stakes over one mile, with Gather Ye Rosebuds running for trainer Jack Channon and there was plenty to like about the way in which the 33/1 shot performed in a Maiden Fillies’ Stakes at Newbury Racecourse where a victory of nearly ten lengths was achieved.

Lambada was able to score a victory for trainer Aidan O’Brien, with the three-year-old able to oblige against twelve other competitors at Gowran Park. The horse won a maiden over one mile, one and a half furlongs, with Seamie Heffernan on board a runner who was able to oblige by nearly four lengths after running well at Leopardstown last autumn.

Sea Of Roses should go well for trainer Andrew Balding and the horse was last seen running at France when finishing second in a race at Saint-Cloud. This was in the Group 3 Prix Penelope and it was no mean feat to finish second behind favourite Pensee Du Jour when running well over one mile and two furlongs on soft ground.
