Mohaafeth 11/10 FAV in York Stakes Odds

The form of MOHAAFETH just gets better and better and he completed a four-timer on his latest effort.

He just dominated again to win the Hampton Court at Royal Ascot and looks as if the sky’s the limit for him at the moment.

The son of Frankel took a pass on the Derby this season because of conditions, but it’s four wins from four from Willie Haggas’s 4-year-old this season.

There is a little trend for him to overcome in this fixture, however.

The last time that a 3-year-old won this race was in 2006. But is Mohaafeth good enough? Yes and he is the 11/10 favourite * (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill)..

Can Armory overturn the favorite?

ARMORY is a big player in this one. He opened the season with a victory in a Chester Group 2 back in May.

He is a quote of 7/4 to take the win on Saturday in York Stakes racing odds* (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill).

On his follow up fixture 38 days ago, Armory was in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot and took third there.

The Group 2 win at the Huxley Stakes which really makes his challenge interesting. That and he is a 4-year-old, which means that trend favours him.

Armory is oozing class and he is a very consistent player. Can he break the winning streak of Mohaafeth?

Juan Elcano is the best of the rest

Following a wind surgery, JUAN ELCANO picked up a victory at Ascot last month. That was in the Royal festival as he collected the Wolferton win.

This is a tougher race for him, but that win does put him in the mix. It’s two very strong rivals that he is going to have to get the better of.

Juan Elcano looks the clear best of the rest behind Mohaafeth and Armory but still has a lot on his plate from 9/2* (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill).

What has Bangkok got?

Andrew Balding’s BANGKOK has collected a couple of wins this season. There’s been a Listed success and a valuable minor one for him.

It was all weather. On his latest run, Bangkok was fourth behind Armory at Chester in May and it’s hard to see him overturning that rival.

The track record of Bangkok in Group 2 and above is not good.

He’s gone winless in seven previous such races and that’s losing streak is likely to continue as he’s a big 22/1 outsider* (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill).

Anything there for Montatham?

MONTATHAM probably isn’t going to win this one. He has probably not even been entered to win.

He is a stablemate of the favourite MOHAAFETH and he is likely to just ensure that a strong pace is set in this race.

That helps Mohaafeth.

As for the individual form of Montatham, there have been two solid efforts from him this season in defeat.

He’s a 22/1 outsider but could play a big role in the outcome of this race* (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill).

Predictions & Tips for York Stakes Racing Odds

MOHAAFETH is special and we have to go with the favourite in racing betting at 11/10* (odds recorded at 22:51 GMT on July 23rd 2021 at William Hill).

Four wins on the spin and likely to be helped out by the inclusion of stablemate Montatham setting him a good pace, this could be the completion of a five-timer for Willie Haggas’s colt.

We easily see ARMORY giving him a tough time, and the former Group 2 winner is the one most likely to upset Mohaafeth’s party.

But the case for Armory is made tougher with Mohaafeth having been handed a nice weight allowance, but these are the likely 1-2.
