Pogo 7/2 FAV in Hungerford Stakes Racing Odds

At the head of the market for Hungerford Stakes tips is POGO at 7/2* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

He has steadily come into some very good form recently and the 6-year-old should be a big contender on Saturday.

There were back-to-back Group 3 wins earlier in this campaign for him.

Those were taken at Haydock and then Newmarket in the summer. On a hattrick bid, Pogo was then sent to the Lennox at Goodwood.

Pogo only managed a third-place finish in that one but wasn’t disgraced in a strong renewal.

He’s just been steaming along on the 7f trip recently. He likes to go strongly from the front and will rate as a danger.



Tiber Flow has a big shout at Newbury

There are big claims for TIBER FLOW as well on Saturday. He is on the shortlist for Hungerford Stakes tips.

Tiber Flow earned a hattrick at the start of the season.

In picking up four wins in his first five appearances, he has been a hot ticket most of the way.

One of the wins that he has recorded has been here at Newbury. That was back in May on a slightly shorter 6f trip.

Tiber Flow went to the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot for his latest effort.

That surprisingly didn’t quite pan out as expected, Tiber Flow finishing down the field in it.

He is best judged on his prior form and therefore he should be bang in this for William Haggas.

Tiber Flow is a quote of 3/1* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

Can former winner Chindit deliver?

As a former winner of this race, CHINDIT is no forlorn hope on the weekend in the 2022 renewal.

It’s questionable whether he really enjoys the 7f distance or not.

But the previous course and distance success gets him in this one.

He won’t fear the conditions. Chindit lines up as a 9/2 option* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

Just last month Chindit won at this grade, scoring the Summer Mile at Ascot.

There have been two wins in five runs by him this season, that Ascot score adding to one taken at Doncaster.

On his latest effort, Chindit was at Glorious Goodwood in the Qatar Stakes (Group 1).

He was well held in that one. But his sights are lowered slightly for Saturday but will carry a 3lb penalty for being a Group 2 winner.

Double Or Bubble not without a shout

Another that is coming down in grade on Saturday is DOUBLE OR BUBBLE. So that also makes her interesting.

Double Or Bubble opened her season with a Group 3 score in the Abernant at Newmarket.

She has been pushed up to the top level the last two times.

Double Or Bubble performed with credit at the top level in the Platinum Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, then the July Cup Stakes back at Newmarket.

She is effective on the 7f trip and not to be discounted.

The place claims are there as Double Or Bubble comes in at a 6/1 quote* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

Happy Romance tests her stamina

Another with some good claims adding to the depth of this race is HAPPY ROMANCE.

Her stamina will be heavily tested on the weekend.

But if she stays then there is no reason why she can’t find herself in the frame.

Happy Romance has a good track record at Newbury, with two wins in five previous efforts here.

She was in Hackwood here on her last effort (Group3) around a month ago.

Happy Romance was denied a clear run there on the shorter trip. From 10/1 she’s an interesting one to consider in Hungerford Stakes tips* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

The rest of the runners

JUMBY has largely been in consistent form this season, notably taking place finishes in the Wokingham and the Bunbury Cup. Wins are evading him this season. Jumby was well below his best when seen at Ascot three weeks ago.

RUN TO FREEDOM has a chance with a big run on the weekend. He has won two of his last three (conditions and listed). There was a 7f score by him as a 3-year-old and has outsider claims.

PRIMO BACIO could find the going a little bit tough. There doesn’t look too much in her form to suggest that she’s going to upset some longer odds.

DUBAI POET was last season eight weeks ago, finishing third in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot. He’s not without place claims if he is in top form.

WINGS OF WAR is the outsider in this contest. He did win at 6f here last season. He’s been in solid if not spectacular form this campaign. Wings Of War was third in a Group 3 in Ireland a week ago.

Predictions & Tips for Hungerford Stakes Tips

TIBER FLOW heads up the selections for Hungerford Stakes tips at 3/1* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

He has been in cracking form this season. A line can be drawn through his recent Commonwealth Cup effort and can make further progress.

DOUBLE OR BUBBLE is very interesting from a longer 6/1 quote* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral). She should find this easier after some bigger efforts at the top level the last twice.

This is a very competitive renewal of the Hungerford Stakes. The final selection out of this has to be the favourite POGO* (odds recorded at 20:11 GMT on August 12th, 2022 at Coral).

He’s been in sparkling form this term with those Group 3 and after getting in the frame in the Lennox at Goodwood last month, he’s a player.
