Alcohol Free the 4/5 FAV in bet365 Mile Racing Odds

There is a clear market leader in this year’s bet365 Mile racing odds.

That’s ALCOHOL FREE at 4/5* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

There were some big moments from the filly in the previous campaign, the best pieces of form being her Group 1 wins in the Sussex Stakes and the Coronation Stakes.

Those summer successes clearly put her in the picture for a potentially big campaign now returning as a 4-year-old.

While she is favourite and clearly in some calmer waters here, it may not be all cut and dry for Alcohol Free.

After her Sussex Stakes win in testing conditions she went off the boil in her final two races of the season.

With the ground looking good-firm for Friday, that may just ask a question or two of Alcohol Free.

14/1 e/w


Mutasaabeq a big danger in the field

There should be a big challenge coming from MUTASAABEQ on Friday in the bet365 Mile.

He is currently a quote of 9/2 to get the score* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

Mutasaabeq was worked hard last season, finding himself put into some stiff pattern company tests.

He didn’t really come through them, but did have a credible midfield finish in the 2000 Guineas.

One big factor that could help him is that he had had a reappearance run a couple of weeks ago so he is match fit.

That recent run saw him take a win at Thirsk on a shorter trip.

Mutasaabeq is low mileage and he had the better of the opposing Rhoscolyn in that win.

Sunray Major to continue impressive form?

There were a lot of high points from last season for SUNRAY MAJOR who took three wins in his first four starts.

It was back to back victories for him at the start of the previous campaign.

The pick of those was at Ascot against a big field in October.

On his final run of last season Sunray Major tanked in the Balmoral.

But he returns as a stronger model as a 5-year old and based on his prior form he has every chance of getting involved.

Sunray Major is a quote of 7/2 in bet365 Mile odds* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

Can Lights On sparkle at Sandown?

LIGHTS ON looks very good, even though this is going to be a tough test for her on Friday.

She does have Ryan Moore booked which should boost her chance.

Lights On found a lot of progressive form in last season’s handicapping efforts at this distance.

Last summer she destroyed a field in a Pontefract Listed event at the 1m trip, although the ground had more given than this.

Following that impressive effort, Lights On was then sent up to Group 3 where things got a little tougher for her.

She wasn’t disgraced in either effort there and there could be more positives to come for her in this campaign.

Lights On is a 14/1 each way contender in bet365 Mile odds* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

Can Johan double up?

JOHAN arrives at Sandown having won his seasonal reappearance effort, which was the Lincoln at Doncaster last month.

A little fortune went his way, but he still made the most of a good opportunity.

That had been Johan’s first run for his new yard and there’s some reasonable form to be read from the Lincoln.

It has produced winners since.

Johan does face a much tougher time of things in this kind of company, but he’s a good handicapper and is currently at 18/1 in horse racing odds* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

Rhoscolyn will be tested

RHOSCOLYN is going to need to dig deep to find some further improvement to get in the bet365 Mile on Friday.

He has had a reappearance run, taking third at Thirsk in a race that was won by Mutasaabeq two weeks ago.

Rhoscolyn will probably strip a bit fitter for having had that effort.

He won three times in handicapping last season and wasn’t disgraced in stronger efforts.

But from 33/1 this demands a massive step of progress* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

Predictions & Tips for bet365 Mile Racing Odds

The very well-bred MUTAASABEQ is going to the pick for bet365 Mile tips on Friday at 9/2* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

He has had his reappearance run, a successful one at that, which means he is sharp.

All that extra work of being highly tested last season may well pay off back among pattern company.

LIGHTS ON is not totally out of this one after running with full credit in a couple of Group 3 efforts at the end of last campaign.

With a top jockey in Ryan Moore booked, refreshed and stronger, she piques interest as a 14/1 each way racing tip* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on April 21st, 2022 at Bet365).

The final shortlisted selection is ALCOHOL FREE who clearly has tremendous ability in her.

Last season went cold after her big Group 1 success, but she’s likely to be a player refreshed.
