2023 Silver Cup Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 15 July 2023

Hamish is a seven-year-old with seriously strong claims when it comes to the John Smith's Silver Cup Stakes, with the form of this horse having been outstanding in the past few months. Tashkan comes next on the York racecard and Brian Ellison saddles a runner who has been hitting the frame recently and the five-year-old could go well here.

First Ruler also has some impressive form after claiming a victory and two runner-up performances in the past three outings, with Yashin running for trainer Jessie Harrington and some punters will feel as though this is an exciting each-way contender.

2023 John Smith's Silver Cup Stakes Tips

Hamish is the worthy market leader and the bookmakers are taking no chances with their odds regarding a runner who was successful at Chester last time out. After a break of over 200 days, the horse was able to oblige in the Ormonde Stakes over one mile, five and a half furlongs, with the runner winning by over a length on 11 May.

The horse was previously runner-up in the St Simon Stakes at Newbury Racecourse on 22 October, with the 8/11 favourite losing by a head to 22/1 shot Max Vega, although William Haggas will be confident of scoring with a horse who won the Cumberland Lodge Stakes at Ascot when being sent off as the 11/10 market leader.

Tashkan is bidding to land a first victory of the season, with the five-year-old running for trainer Brian Ellison and there could be an improvement after the horse finished fourth in the Prix de Barbeville over one mile, seven and a half furlongs. That came after a third placed finish out of five runners in the Further Flight Stakes at Nottingham.

First Ruler runs for trainer Charlie Appleby and the four-year-old finished second out of four runners at Goodwood in early June, with the runner finishing second in Bahrain over one mile and four furlongs. Previously to this, there was a success at Meydan in early February although it’s hard to marry this form compared to the UK runners.
