The jump season will be over in just a couple of weeks, but there are still lots of betting opportunities for punters. All the eyes will be on Newmarket this weekend where there are several top races scheduled. One of which is the famous Dewhurst Stakes where we have a very competitive field while the feature race is the Cesarewitch. Our horse racing betting experts have reviewed those two intriguing races and provided their analysis and best bets. To find other best betting tips check our dedicated section.
3.30pm – Dewhurst Stakes Betting Tips
Even though it is the Cesarewitch the main race of the day, when it comes to class, it will be the Dewhurst Stakes that will attract the majority of attention. This is a Group 1 contest that is over seven furlongs, and it always attracts the top two-year-old horses around. Once again, it should be a cracking clash on the Rowley Mile that should give plenty of insights on the 2020 classic generation.
Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In the Dewhurst And Cesarewitch Races
There have been several 2000 Guineas winners who have been successful in the Dewhurst Stakes over the years. Looking at the betting market Pinatubo is undoubtedly very likely to secure the famous double and can be backed at 1/3 with bet365. This horse, owned by Godolphin, has produced some terrific display last time at the Curragh. He secured the National Stakes at the end of a performance that many have said to be the best juvenile display in recent times.
Pinatubo is still unbeaten, and surely he is the one to beat in this race. It will be interesting to see how he will cope against Wichita who will represent Ballydoyle and Positive who was five lengths behind him at Goodwood in the last summer.
16:10pm – Cesarewitch Handicap Betting Tips
Surely the Cesarewitch is one of the most traditional and prestigious handicap races in the UK. From a betting perspective, it is certainly one of the most difficult ones to predict.
A massively competitive field will gather in the popular Rowley Mile, and from a betting point of view it is a difficult race to read. Having said that, in this renewal, we have a strong favourite which is the brilliant Buildmeupbuttercup. He has been attracting lots of bets in the last few days, and it is not surprising. He will represent trainer Willie Mullins who has won this competition last season with Low Sun. He will have Frankie Dettori, and he is available at 9/2 with Paddy Power.
Punters that are looking for more ‘meaty’ odds should look at his stablemate Great White Shark which can be backed at 12/1. This Willie Mullins trained horse is now five years old and earlier in the summer recorded a win at the Galway Festival. Since then she has run well twice including a 3rd place at Ballybrit in his last appearance. In that race, he jumped rather poorly so we should see him improving here.
Ranch Hand should also be considered. He will represent Andrew Balding and has onboard champion jockey elect Oisin Murphy. This horse was last seen winning at Haydock in very good style and can well be in the frame.
