Cambridgeshire Meeting Day 3 Tips
Here are the third day of the Cambridgeshire 2023 Meeting races.
13:50 – Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes
It was originally held at Ascot racecourse but was permanently transferred to Newmarket in 2011.
The race has a rich history of producing Classic winners including Shirley Heights (1977), Benny The Dip (1996) and Frankel (2010).
14:25 – Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes
The inaugural running was won by Lutetia in 1899 and it has proved a highly significant trial for the 1000 Guineas. Fillies to win both races include Waterloo (1971), Ma Biche (1982), Ravinella (1987), Sayyedati (1992) and Special Duty (2009).
French raiders have a good record here with Criquette Head-Maarek winning a record four times.
Natagora also won for Pascal Bary in 2007 before going on to win the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.
Aidan O’Brien won the race for three successive seasons between 2016 and 2017. Millisle continued Ireland’s domination when scoring for Jessica Harrington in 2019 before Andrew Balding’s Alcohol Free reclaimed the prize for Britain in 2020.
15:00 – Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes
The second of the two Group 1 races is the 2023 Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes for two years old colts over 6 furlongs.
Leading horses from the Middle Park Stakes sometimes go on to compete in the following season’s QIPCO 2000 Guineas.
It was part of Future Champions Day in 2011 but returned to the Cambridgeshire fixture to avoid a clash with the Dewhurst Stakes.
The race was once regarded as a 2000 Guineas trial but the last horse to win both races was Rodrigo De Triano in 1991-1992.
The emphasis is now more on speed and winners here tend to go on to races like the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot or the July Cup.
Aidan O’Brien is now the leading trainer in the history of the race with six winners; Minardi (2000), Johannesburg (2001), Ad Valorem (2004), Crusade (2011), US Navy Flag (2017) and Ten Sovereigns (2018).
15:40 – bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap
The Cambridgeshire Handicap 2023 is one of the last big handicaps of the season and the first leg of the Autumn Double, completed by the Cesarewitch in October.
It was first running of the Cambridgeshire Handicap race was in 1839 with victory going to Lanercost.
It is over nine furlongs on the Rowley Mile so it is more suited to ten-furlong horses than horses that excel over shorter trips.
There have been seven dual winners of the race, the most recent being Bronze Angel in 2012 and 2014.
John Gosden is the leading trainer in the history of the race with five winners; Halling (1994), Pipedreamer (2007), Tazeez (2008), Wissahickon (2018) and Lord North (2019). Halling went on to win the Group 1 Eclipse Stakes and the International Stakes for two successive seasons in 1995 and 1996.
There have been some big gambles landed in the race including Pasternak (1997) and Blue Monday (2005). However, there have also been plenty of shock results. Spanish Don won at 100-1 in 2004, Dolphin Vista was 50-1 in 2017 and Majestic Dawn provided a 40-1 shock in 2020.
16:15 – Blandford Bloodstock Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (gbb Race) (Class 3) (2YO only) 7f
The 5th race of Day 3 is the Class 3 Blandford Bloodstock Maiden Fillies’ Stakes for horses aged 2 only and running a distance of 7 furlongs.
