Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock – Betting Odds Preview

August 23, 2011

The Betfred Sprint Cup held at Haydock. It is the course’s only Group 1 race on the flat and in 2011 is due to be run on 3rd September. The race was originally open for horses aged two and upwards. That is no longer the case and is now for 3yo+ runners only.

It is not a race to be looking for trends regarding connections, as such as no trainer or jockey has had any dominance over the event in recent seasons. John Dunlop has had four winners of the race, but that is over a time spanning some 30 years since 1981.

However, the following pointers may be worth noting down and checking with the form.

We should be looking for one who has finished in the first four last time out. Temple Stakes runners, and those turning out quickly after the Nunthorpe are always worth noting. The Temple Stakes is a group 2 race so this can be considered a step up in class, but previous experience in a top class race at this venue is an obvious plus. A good finish in the Nunthorpe shows that the runner is currently in good form and has speed for the trip.

One that finished runner up in the Temple Stakes and has actually won the Nunthorpe previously, finishing fourth this season is Kingsgaite Native who always gives his best. Sole Power swerved the Nunthorpe, preference given to this race and was the one who beat Kingsgaite Native in the Temple. Both are available at around 16/1.

I will have a full preview of the race during the week
