Nunthorpe Stakes tips dive deep into the big Group 1 fixture of Friday’s racing action at the York Ebor Festival.

Fascinatingly, the only 2-year-old in this year’s renewal is one of the big contenders.

Royal Acclaim 15/8 FAV in Nunthorpe Stakes Racing Odds

The undefeated filly ROYAL ACLAIM heads the Nunthorpe market at 15/8* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

She warrants some respect and she has proven herself to be a very good strong traveller so far.

On her latest run, Royal Aclaim banked a course and distance win in the Listed City Walls.

It was a dominant sprinting performance and she clearly looks as if she belongs at this top level.

It’s been three wins from three appearances by Royal Aclaim so far.

She has got better with each subsequent run and it’s hard to see not getting involved in this one.



Can Platinum Queen deliver?

The only 2-year-old in the field is the 11/4 second favourite PLATINUM QUEEN* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

She has good claims though because of her pace, which has sent her form through the roof.

It’s been three wins in three from Platinum Queen so far.

The only result against her was in the Queen Mary when she found herself hampered.

While the latest of those victories was taken in a minor contest, her times look terrific.

She definitely tops the list when it comes to looking for pace angles into the race.

It’s a massive jump up in grade, but she will be helped out with her afforded weight allowance.

Flotus another speedster to watch

FLOTUS is the other table runner in this field like The Platinum Queen who can lay down the pace.

She has been tested at the top level this season and hasn’t been disgraced with place finishes.

Flotus delivered a course win at the Group 3 Summer Stakes here last time out.

She takes a drop-in trip for this one which gives her plenty of claims.

From a current quote of 12/1 in Nunthorpe odds, Flotus can work her way into contention* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

Highfield Princess not to be dismissed

Although she is not too often seen at this minimum distance, HIGHFIELD PRINCESS isn’t to be counted out of this.

It’s been three victories for the likeable mare in the last four efforts.

The latest of her winning efforts came last time out at Deauville 12 days ago.

Before that, she was involved in the Platinum Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in which she was sixth in the Group 1.

But her score over in France saw her get the better of some of those that had finished ahead of her at Ascot.

She’s not without speed and could be a player from 8/1* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

Khaadem could play a part

There is good form from KHAADEM that puts him right in the frame in this one.

He has won the last twice and the latest of those was a brilliant effort in the Group 2 King George Stakes.

Khaadem saw off big rival Raasel in that one and should be a big player on Friday.

He really looks as if he has rediscovered the sprinting ability that he showed last season.

Before that recent score at King George, he had dominated the Palace House.

Khaadem is a quote of 10/1 in Nunthorpe Stakes odds* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

Raasel poses a threat

RAASEL was the runner-up to Khaadem in a brilliant renewal of the King George Stakes.

He was beaten by the rival by a neck only in what was a clear career-best effort from the 5-year-old.

Raasel has taken so well to life in Group company. A decent draw should see him go well again.

There is a current quote of 12/1 for Nunthorpe Stakes odds on Raasel* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

Others to note

EMARAATY ANA was the runner-up in last year’s renewal of the Nunthorpe Stakes, in what was a cracking effort. He took a win at a Group 1 following that. He hasn’t hit the same levels this season, but there was an encouraging effort last time out by him.

DRAGON SYMBOL was a winner at Hamilton on his latest run having been eased in grade and trip for the contest. It was a much-improved effort, but whether there is a back-up remains to be seen.

WINTER POWER won last year’s Nunthorpe renewal, thriving at the distance. However, she looks to have stalled for trainer Tim Easterby since then.

Predictions & Tips for Nunthorpe Stakes Tips

This is a huge renewal of this popular race. The first name on the list for the Nunthorpe Stakes tips is KHAADEM.

He is a 10/1 shot and the manner of victory in both the Palace House and the King George Stakes was too good to be ignored* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

HIGHFIELD PRINCESS is a class act and has come to a boil very nicely for this one.

Her experience will help and although she’s rarely seen at 5f, she does possess the pace to get involved from 8/1* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

The final name on the shortlist for Nunthorpe Stakes Tips is FLOTUS at 12/1* (odds recorded at 21:45 GMT on 18th August 2022 at Coral).

Much has been made of the speed that The Platinum Queen has, but Flotus is right there too. She looks like a Group 1 winner in the making.

We do as well have to give a nod towards ROYAL ACCLAIM who has been nothing short of class all the way.

The way that she took apart a listed field at course and distance last time out, firmly puts her on the radar too.
