Marshman 3/1 J/F in Gimcrack Stakes Racing Odds

One of the leading contenders and a current 3/1 joint-favourite is MARSHMAN* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

He delivered a winning debut appearance at Ayr last month and then was a vastly improved model on his second run.

At Thirsk last week Marshman showed tremendous strength and speed.

He found a level of power that just obliterated the field.

So he should be a player in the Gimcrack on Friday, but he faces a couple of equally progressive-looking rivals.



Noble Style looks for the hattrick

It has also been two wins from two for NOBLE STYLE is one of the 3/1 joint-favourites in the Gimcrack odds* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

There was an eye-catching debut win for this smart prospect at Ascot on a 5f trip back in May.

After an enforced break of three months, he then returns in red-hot fashion.

It was a score at Newmarket three weeks ago that the Charlie Appleby-trained Noble Style banked.

He should still have plenty more to tap into and can be right in the thick of the action.

Royal Scotsman firmly in the hunt

The other 3/1 joint-favourite is ROYAL SCOTSMAN* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

He landed the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood, one of two wins that he has banked from four runs.

Royal Scotsman took that Richmond Stakes with ease three weeks ago.

It was a fantastic straightforward victory.

Royal Scotsman will be under a penalty on Friday, but he looks like being a big player.

Clearpoint has some claims

Connections look to have a good move with CLEARPOINT testing him at this level.

He looks worthy of a place here after winning two of two runs so far.

There was a victory at Ayr from him at this distance in May.

He followed that up a minimum distance at Newcastle 55 days ago and it was another good effort.

Clearpoint may need a little more up at this level, but from a 9/1 quote there are place claims* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

Chateau not to be dismissed

There could be a solid bit launched by CHATEAU on Friday in the Gimcrack as well.

He has taken two wins in five appearances and the Havana Gold colt does have place claims.

A victory in a Newbury Listed contest on his penultimate run puts him in a good light.

Chateau then went to Glorious Goodwood to tackle the Richmond Stakes.

He was a very credible third in that on what was his first appearance up at the group level.

There could be more to come from the 12/1 shot* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

The rest of the runners

NEVER JUST A DREAM got off the mark at the second time of asking. Under a positive ride, he scored at Wolverhampton but this still may be beyond him.

CATCH THE PADDY landed a course and distance win last month in a nursery. He has been progressive but this is a huge jump up in grade.

COLD CASE isn’t without some claims to make a run at the places. He has looked highly promising at times and won a maiden at course and distance earlier this summer.

GALERON opened his account at the second time of asking. He was short on a move up to Group 2 last time out, however.

LAKOTA BLUE is seeking a hattrick after finding some form having dropped back in grade. It’s hard to see him getting in the picture at this level.

NEVER JUST A DREAM blew his lines after being well-supported at Ascot on his debut. But he did open his accounts to Wolverhampton 11 days ago having been helped by a positive ride. He’s no forlorn hope for the places.

WAITING ALL NIGHT scored on his debut but hasn’t added to that in four subsequent attempts. He’s fallen short at this level and is unlikely to trouble the big players on Friday.

CHUZZLEWIT was an expensive purchase and was well-backed on his debut. He didn’t read his lines however and is going to find the big step up in class challenging.

Predictions & Tips for Gimcrack Stakes Tips

The Gimcrack is wide open this year and it’s going to be a fascinating showdown between three big, promising juveniles.

Getting to the top of the shortlist for Gimcrack Stakes tips is ROYAL SCOTSMAN at 3/1* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

That’s because his all-business-like manner in landing the Richmond Stakes was highly impressive.

MARSHMAN’s fascinating score at Thirsk last week was nothing short of brilliant. It could hint at bigger things to come.

Because of that current performance, he has to also land on the shortlist* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).

The final selection in Gimcrack Stakes tips is going to look at a longer-priced option that has some appeal.

That is CHATEAU who impressed by attacking a place finish in the Richmond Stakes on his first attempt at this grade.

He could be an interesting 12/1 contender* (odds recorded at 18:47 on August 18th, 2022 at Unibet).
