We bring the curtain down on a thrilling flat season on Saturday and the last race of the year will be the Balmoral Handicap. Ahead of the final flat race of the year, here at betting.bet we’ll check out just some of the horses in contention to land the Balmoral Handicap, offering race insights, odds and free bets courtesy of BoyleSports.
Last year’s winning trainer, David O’Meara has four entries this year, including Bopedro, Rhoscolyn, Blue For You and Bennetot. 2022 winning jockey, Jason Watson will ride Rhoscolyn but we believe O’Meara’a strongest entry this year is Bopedro. Seven-year-old, Bopedro heads to Ascot on the back of a solid third in Newmarket’s Cambridgeshire Handicap last month.
The current market leader is the Harry Eustace-trained three-year-old, Docklands. The bookies’ favourite has already won twice over C&D this season, most recently when winning the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Only one other horse entered into the Balmoral has previously won at Ascot with five-year-old, Baradar landing the International Stakes over 7f in July. Baradar’s only run over one mile this season produced an encouraging third place finishes in the Lincoln Handicap way back in April.
One to watch in the betting is Awaal. He was second in the Lincoln ahead of Baradar and finished third over C&D in the Royal Hunt Cup here in June. Opened the week at 14/1 but is now just 10/1 as he continues to attract support.
Sonny Liston is amongst the favourites in the betting having finished two lengths clear of Awaal at Royal Ascot however, the latter is now 7lbs better off.
