Kinross 3/1 FAV in John Of Gaunt Stakes Racing Odds

Lining up as one of the key contenders in the John Of Gaunt Stakes tips is KINROSS at 3/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

The ground conditions probably are not to his best liking, but he should still be a big player on his day.

He won last year’s renewal of this fixture and added the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood as well.

On his final run of last season, he did fairly well in a Group 1 at Ascot but ran into some trouble.

Kinross is now refreshed and recharged and has the class to make his presence felt in this one.



Happy Power could have a good day

This is a tougher contest for HAPPY POWER than the one in which he took a score a month ago.

That was his own landing at Leicester, against only two other rivals.

Happy Power took full advantage of the contest against weaker opposition in that one to end a winless streak.

Still, it was a good run from him, leading positively a couple from home on a 7f trip.

While he will need to dig a little deeper, Happy Power is a 5/1 contender* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

Sunray Major could have something to offer

SUNRAY MAJOR has been highly tried this season, opening with a Group 2 appearance on his return.

That saw him produce a good fifth-place finish at Sandown last month.

He was then pushed up to the top tier for a spot in the Lockinge at Newbury, so connections think highly of him.

Sunray Major was fourth in that latest run, so this easing of the grade should help him.

He comes from a top yard who appears to be handling his progress very well and he has a chance.

For John Of Gaunt Stakes tips, Sunray Major is a quote of 3/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

Spycatcher match fit

SPYCATCHER has resumed business well and he is proving to be a good consistent one.

He opened the campaign with a win at Lingfield in February.

Spycatcher was last seen 17 days ago at York, taking on Group 2 company, and he wasn’t disgraced at all with a runner-up spot in the Duke Of York.

He moves up in distance for this one and if there is a strong pace, then he could find himself involved.

Spycatcher is no forlorn hope for the contest at 11/2* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

Can Laneqash find more?

LANEQASH is interesting in this contest as he makes his reappearance after eight months away from the track.

He is still low mileage and last season he was competitive in a couple of stronger races at Newbury and Doncaster.

The last time that he was seen was in the Group 2 Joel Stakes at Newmarket.

Laneqash was fourth in that one with a credible run that was full of encouragement.

He has been gelded during his time off and is interesting from 13/2* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

Rest of the runners

CATCH TWENTYTWO was a good performer at Grade 1 in South Africa last year but hasn’t been in form this season and this looks like a tough task.

MISTY GREY has been consistent and opened the season with a course and distance place finish three weeks ago. That was his first spin on the turf for a while, but he faces stiff opposition in this.

POGO faded in the Group 2 Godolphin Mile on his latest run, which was two months ago. He did perform very well as a runner up in last year’s Group 2 Joel Stakes though.

Predictions & Tips for John Of Gaunt Stakes Racing Odds

This is a very good competitive renewal and the first of our John of Gaunt Stakes tips is SUNRAY MAJOR at 7/2* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

While he found Group 1 company a little too hot last time out, he wasn’t disgraced in the Lockinge and can pose a threat in this easier contest.

13/2 shot LANEQASH was a tricky one to follow last season* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

But could retain some potential as he comes in fresh after a good Group 2 performance last time out.

Of the rest, HAPPY POWER gets the nod for the shortlist at 5/1* (odds recorded at 21:09 GMT on May 27th, 2022 at Bet365).

More will be demanded of him, but he arrives on a positive note and his profile looks good for this kind of company.
