Wokingham Stakes betting preview

This race is perhaps the biggest handicap sprint at the festival and is run over a distance of six furlongs. The Wokingham Stakes is a class two race that is for three year olds and over. This another one of those races at Royal Ascot that has been incredibly hard to predict over the years due to its competitive nature.

Despite this the betting markets are always very active and punters have been rewarded in the last few years with two fancied horses winning in the last four meetings. However last year’s winner Dandy Boy reminded punters about the difficulty of selecting a winner for this race as he started out as a 33/1 long shot.

No trainer has managed to win this race twice since 1996 so there any trends that can really be followed when it comes to trainers. With so many different winning trainers it wouldn’t be recommended to bet on a horse for purely this reason. This is one of the most open races during the whole week which benefits the smaller stables as they get the opportunity to win a prestigious event.read more about Gaza deal at http://www.rooftop-view.com/why-the-garza-deal-is-no-good/

One trend you should consider is that lightly weighted horses don’t fare well in this event at all so it is best to avoid them.
