But will there be an upset in the contest? The bet365 Mile is a Group 2 1m trip open to 4-year-olds and above.

Palace Pier odds-on FAV in Bet365 Mile racing odds

The stand-out favourite in horse racing betting for this contest is PALACE PIER.

He is currently at 4/9 to take the win* (odds recorded at 19:44 GMT on April 22nd 2021 at Bet365).

He does look as if he is going to take some stopping, despite losing his undefeated career record last time out.

Palace Pier could do no more than a third-place finish at the Queen Elizabeth II on his final outing of last season.

That Ascot run in October was on softer ground and it wasn’t particularly favourable for Palace Pier. But he is a top horse.

Last season as a three-year-old Palace Pier won a couple of Grade 1 efforts at Ascot and in France. So it’s hard to ignore that.

If he’s back in that kind of form on Friday then he is going to be really tough to knock over. He just rapidly progressed into one of the top 1-milers around last season.



Can Khuzaam upset the odds?

The biggest threat to the favourite in this field is KHUZAAM but he does look as if he has something to prove.

That is mostly about him taking to the turf. But the 3/1 shot in bet365 Mile racing odds is coming in fit and on fire* (odds recorded at 19:44 GMT on April 22nd 2021 at Bet365).

He is sitting on a hattrick chance at the moment after a very positive start to the new campaign. The recent runs does give him a match-fit advantage over the favourite.

The low mileage five-year-old got his latest victory in a valuable Lingfield race three weeks ago in the all-weather.

Khuzaam did appear to show quite a bit of progress in that victory, but his chances may be dampened here because of lack of form on the turf.

Can Happy Power outrun his odds?

HAPPY POWER is a 10/1 option for the bet365 Mile racing odds* (odds recorded at 19:44 GMT on April 22nd 2021 at Bet365).

He likes to get to the front and just boss things from there and it will set this race up brilliantly if he gets an early lead.

That’s because Happy Power will just go and go and it could give him a chance to get in this one. Happy Power is under a 3lb penalty in this one.

He delivered a lot of good stuff in the previous campaign and rounded off a hattrick with a Group 2 success on a 7f trip at Newmarket.

On his final run of the last season, he went to Ascot for the Champions Sprint and finished well down the field.

But there were excuses there for him and he will be very interested in coming up on a favourable trip.

What does Bless Him have?

There is a big question mark of BLESS HIM who is a massive outsider in bet365 Mile racing odds 2021. It’s hard to see him getting in this.

Bless Him is the lowest-rated horse in this field. He did open the scene with a victory but he is just completely unproven up to his level.

There’s very little to suggest that he is going to produce the run needed to upset some sizable odds in this fixture.

Predictions & Tips for bet365 Mile Racing Odds

HAPPY POWER is interesting coming back refreshed, as if he gets to the front he will shake things up. Does he have the stamina to keep it up for the mile and hold off quality opposition?

KHUZAAM has massive potential and genuinely looks the big threat to the favourite, but there is a slight doubt over his turf form.

All roads lead to PALACE PIER in bet365 Mile racing odds for Friday. He is head and shoulders above the rest of this field and he is likely to immediately get back to winning ways.
