Limato Starts at Narrow Favorite in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes racePublished June 24, 2017 by Florin P
The best horses will race on Saturday in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes a highly contested even with several strong favorites. (4:20 p.m UK Time).
The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is one of the most important horse racing competitions in the world and a hotspot for racing fans in the UK. It will be celebrating 150 years of existence in 2018, which makes it one of the longest standing events of this type. It went by many names, including All-Aged Stakes, Cork and Orrery Stakes and its system of race grading was added in 1971. This year, the competition is particularly exciting because the difference between the favorites is negligible.
Bet365 sports gives Limato odds of 9/2, which suggests its confidence in this red-hot horse and his jockey. Even so, the odds are only slightly lower than those offered to the next two courses, The Tin Man and Magical Memory. Punters who choose to bet on the former could win up to eight times the investment, while the latter benefits from odds of 8/1.
Keep an Eye on Tasleet and Windfast
The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is expected to be enjoyed even by people who don’t necessarily watch or bet on horse racing events. The magnitude of this competition as well as its tradition makes it very attractive for all those who love the beautiful sport. Not surprisingly, many of those who’ll watch the race will also place a bet and a couple of horses seem to catch their eye. Among those that are featured in the leading pack, it is worth mentioning Tasleet, which receives odds of 10/1 at bet365 sports.
As always, the best return on investment can be secured by finding those horses that have odds holding extraordinary value. Commonly referred to as “dark horses” by the sports betting community, they are underdogs capable of causing major upsets. In 2017, Winfast is preferred by those who try to predict a surprise and it benefits from spectacular odds of 40/1.
