Mildenberger the 5/4 fav for Newmarket Rose Bowl Stakes

The strong favourite for Rose Bowl Stakes betting on Thursday is MILDENBERGER who is currently at 5/4 in the market* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:33 GMT on Wednesday, 23rd September 2020).

He did after all, only just miss out on a hattrick last time out.

After excellent wins at the 2m trip in all-weather contests, Mildenberger put in another excellent run at the Sagaro Stakes on his last run.

He was second in that Newcastle contest, but put together a very promising run. He has course winning form behind him and he is a good horse from fresh as well.

That’s important as this will be his first run since the Sagaro Stakes 110 days ago. He’s a front runner in such a small field. The biggest question of all will be over how he translates his form over back onto the turf.



Could Withhold get the job done?

There is a threat coming in from WITHHOLD at 15/8* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:33 GMT on Wednesday, 23rd September 2020). The seven-year-old was last out in early September so he has had a recent run.

That was a good effort in a 14f trip at Salisbury in which he took second place and he had RANCH HAND behind him in fourth as well, a fair way back.

The conditions could really play into his favour in this one, because some good stiff ground should see him flourish.

He is likely to be a player from the front in this one and the other big claim of course, comes from him having won last year’s renewal as well.

It will be a fascinating tactical battle if he gets to the front and takes this on.

Ghostwatch needs to bounce back

A small field and some firmer ground could be just what GHOSTWATCH needs to get under his belt in this contest.

His last race was at York in the Ebor where he couldn’t get himself going in the 14f trip and finished 15th of 21 there.

Nothing suited him in that step up but he is fairly used to strong company. He will be going on the 2m trip for the first time, so there is a bit of unknown quantity about him there.

But he looks like a decent stayer. He’s been lightly raced and will need to find a season-best, but is there as the 11/2 third-favourite* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:33 GMT on Wednesday, 23rd September 2020).

Ranch Hand find the necessary improvement?

There was a fairly decent run from RANCH HAND on his last effort as he put in an appearance at the Ebor handicap at York.

He was sixth there on what was a respectable showing for him. He looks a good steady middle-distance runner, but a win in this may be a bit of a reach.

On his last race as mentioned above, he was fourth behind second-placed WITHHOLD at Salisbury and he is out at 17/2 for Thursday’s contest* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:33 GMT on Wednesday, 23rd September 2020).

A big ask for Sleeping Lion

The outsider for this contest is SLEEPING LION at 33/1* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:33 GMT on Wednesday, 23rd September 2020).

He hasn’t landed a win in any of his four runs since coming back to action and struggled in a Doncaster handicap a couple of weeks ago. Sleeping Lion trailed home last in that 14f trip and it’s hard to see him making any kind of impact.

Predictions & Tips for TRACK Racing Odds

An intriguing race and it is last year’s winner WITHHOLD that we are going to go with as our main pick for this one.

He has proven himself at course and distance and looks likely to get to the front and launch a bold bid from there.

This is going to be a fascinating tactical race and with the ground probably playing into his favour more than anyone, we have to stick with him.

MILDENBERGER is in a good place at the moment after just missing out on his hat trick in the Saguaro Stakes run at Newcastle.

But the one thing there is that all of his top form has been on the all-weather, and it’s just that variable about the switch back to the turf.

He has won 4 of 10 previous runs on the turf, it’s worth noting so he should be there or thereabouts.

We picture this as being a two-horse race and can’t find enough in any of the others to pick as a potential winning option.

But for place claims it may just be worth a look at RANCH HAND who has had a couple of steady runs to get there ahead of Ghostwatch who was poor in the Ebor.
