Bet On The 2013 Lancashire Oaks


coco_2607948bWinners line the field for the Bet365.come Lancashire Oaks to be held this weekend, with Albasharah looking to move on from her desperately unlucky outing at Royal Ascot with a victory for Saeed bin Suroor. Albasharah is the bookmaker’s favourite for the race, but will be joined by a five-time winner last year in the form of Midnight Soprano, and she will also have to look out for the growing Moment In Time, a winner last time out.

Wannabe Loved 14/1


Heading into Royal Ascot’s Wolferton Handicap unbeaten, punters would have fancied Albasharah’s chances of walking away with the win, but she encountered problems mid-run, and was only able to finish a disappointing fifth. ‘She was very unlucky at Royal Ascot, but ran very well and came back sound,’ said trainer bin Suroor, and the feeling is that the luck that deserted her at Ascot can’t make a reappearance at Haydock. She will be stepping up from 10 furlongs to a mile and a half, but bin Suroor doesn’t expect this shift to be too much of a problem on the stamina of the horse.

Should Albasharah’s stamina, or any other problems, cause issues, Midnight Soprano will be there to capitalise. He won five races last season, and the six-year-old is looking good coming into the race. He won the Group 3 Noblesse Stakes at Cork last month and is in fine form. Trainer Paul Deegan is looking for a big race from his horse, but might be concerned about the drying conditions, as his charge has proven he favours muddy tracks.

Moment In Time won last time out over this course and distance in the Pinnacle Stakes, and cannot be overlooked for this outing, but you feel that Albasharah will be the one to beat come race day.

Elsewhere in the field, John Gosden will be looking for a hat trick of victories in the event with either Gallipot or Wannabe Loved after having trained the winners of both the 2011 and 2012 renewals, Gertrude Bell and Great Heavens respectively.
