Horse Racing Betting at Paddy Power

Local Dynasty 2/1 FAV in Acomb Stakes Racing Odds

The current market leader at 2/1 in Acomb Stakes odds is LOCAL DYNASTY* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

The son of Dubawi, Local Dynasty looked stylish in landing a debut victory at Newmarket recently.

From a 15/8 SP, he scored the victory in the maiden contest after settling down well in the second half of the contest.

There were excusable touches of greenness through the easy stages.

But in the end, the manner of victory by the Local Dynasty suggests that he can push on to bigger things.

He had plenty in hand at the finish in that Newmarket contest. The Local Dynasty potentially looks like a smart one.


Paddy Power

Mill Stream with credentials

In this fascinating renewal of the Acomb Stakes, MILL STREAM brings some claims to the table.

He was well-supported for his debut run, which was a maiden at Doncaster.

Mill Stream delivered the odds in that one and then took his form forward on his follow-up.

Under a penalty at Newmarket three weeks ago, he ran with great credit to score at Newmarket.

That was against another potentially good rival, so the form reads very well from it.

Mill Stream takes on an extra trip in this contest which could bring more from him.

He is not to be underestimated in this contest and rates as a danger from 10/3* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Chaldean brings form forward

After an average kind of debut which resulted in a fifth-place finish at Newbury, CHALDEAN took an impressive step forward.

The follow-up by the son of Frankel was impressive at the same venue.

He got off the mark in a 12-runner field and landed the win with plenty to spare as well.

The 7f trip brought the best out of him and some serious form has since been boosted.

Three of the runners that Chaldean defeated in that novice race have since gone on to win.

Chaldean enters the frame as a 6/1 contender on Wednesday* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

His breeding sets him up very well for this contest and he could make a big impression.

Indestructible could find further improvement

Another of the fascinating entrants into the 2022 Acomb Stakes, is INDESTRUCTIBLE.

From a quote of 7/1 he may not be out of place at this higher grade* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Indestructible showed a good bit of promise on his debut, and then fully delivered on it next time out.

Three weeks ago Indestructible scored a novice contest at Windsor.

He did take a few furlongs to settle, but then he delivered a devastating finish in the contest.

Once he got into his stride inside the final furlong there was no stopping him.

Hectic could outrun his odds

A longer-priced contender in the Acomb Stakes 2022 odds at 10/1 HECTIC warrants respect* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

He delivered an impressive debut at Newbury recently, keeping on well on a 6f trip.

Hectic doesn’t look as if he should have a problem with the extra furlong on Wednesday.

He looked to have a touch of maturity about him in that winning start.

This is obviously a much tougher task ahead for him in midweek but he is not without place claims.

Rest of the runners

SHAQUILLE can’t totally be written out of this after making a winning start to his career at course and distance.

It was a useful run, but the form may be a little bare from it for win purposes, but place claims could be there with any degree of progress.

OVIEDO landed a debut victory a month ago. That was delivered at Doncaster on 7f trips and looked useful for it.

He was happy getting to the front and taking things on.

FEEL THE NEED did win at the second time of asking, but the form from the victory may not read strongly enough.

He showed a good attitude to get the win, but this is much tougher.

CHILLHI was anonymous on his debut but then took his form forward considerably on his follow-up.

He landed a victory in a small field at Newcastle, but others have more appeal.

Verdict for Acomb Stakes Tips

This year’s renewal of the Acomb Stakes is highly competitive and some deep claims are running through this contest.

The first selection for our Acomb Stakes tip is LOCAL DYNASTY at 2/1* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power). He looks potentially like a class act in the making and should be in the thick of it.

Irish Raider INDESTRUCTIBLE has plenty of appeal as well at 7/1* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

The way that he finished the job at Windsor in a novice contest last time out, gets him on the shortlist for Acomb Stakes tips.

MILL STREAM completes the line-up for the Acomb tips after two very good efforts under his belt.

He warrants his spot in this grade and is a big player at 10/3* (odds recorded at 18:53 GMT on August 16th, 2022 at Paddy Power). Mill Stream is a little unlucky not to be heading to York seeking a hattrick.
