Lingfield 15:15: Bet365 offer 8/11 racing odds on Bangkok – 22nd February 2020

Bangkok to boss things in Winter Derby

Horse Racing Betting

Part of the Lingfield action on Saturday is the Betway Winter Derby Stakes (Group 3). This class 1 contest has seven entrants. The field though looks to be a lot shorter than that as it may just boil down to a straight forward two-horse race between Bangkok and Dubai Warrior.

Bangkok 8/11
Dubai Warrior 7/4
Court House 14/1
Dalgarno 33/1

Horse Racing Betting at Bet365


Outright favourite Bangkok, just like his nearest challenger Dubai Warrior are both course and distance winners. Bangkok opened this season with a C&D victory over Court House as the 13/8 favourite.

He was totally untroubled in the fixture, in which the four-year-old beat Court House who was last year’s winner of the Winter Derby.

It’s probably worth noting that Bangkok broke the course record in that C&D and also in the race was Dalgarno, Pactolus and Master The World. Bangkok is 8/11 favourite* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 21st, 2020 at 18:49)

Dubai Warrior

Easily the most serious threat to the dominance of Bangkok is Dubai Warrior who has Frankie Dettori in the saddle. It has been back to back victories for him, one at Chelmsford and then at Lingfield most recently. The Chelmsford success at class 1 was back on December 21st.

The John Gosden-trained four-year-old was in the familiar company for that one, beating his stablemate Court House as well as Dalgarno. Dubai Warrior is 7/4 second-favourite* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 21st, 2020 at 18:49).


All the focus is going to be on Bangkok on this trip. As the best outsider to pull an each way bid from, it is Entangling at 50/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 21st, 2020 at 18:49).

He has been travelling pretty well in some recent handicap action. Entangling was last out at Kempton earlier in February where he was third as a beaten favourite behind Sky Defender. He has won three times on polytrack between 1m and 1m 4f.

The rest of the runners

You have Master The World and Pactolus who are previous course and distance winners. Neither are at the kind of rating of form that looks likely to see an upset caused by one of them. There’s plenty of experience there, but both have been soundly beaten by Bangkok recently.

Dalgarno was heavily beaten over course and distance on his last trip, which was earlier in February.

Then there is Court House who must be sick of both Bangkok and Dubai Warrior. He is a steady performer though and was second behind the former on his last trip earlier this month at C&D.

Predictions & Tips

It is Bangkok all the way. He was convincing in beating most of this field over course and distance recently and there should be no stopping him this time, not even with John Gosden’s Dubai Warrior in the mix. He is likely to be the one to push the favourite the hardest, but may not have enough to actually hold him off.
