The Nunthorpe Stakes at Ebor Festival This Week

Date: 9/2/2020

With the Ebor Festival due to start this week, the feature race on Day 3 is the none other than the Nunthorpe Stakes which always brings up a high-quality race – something that is always looked forward to every year. The race brings together Group 1 flat racehorses that are aged two years or older and run over a distance of 5 furlongs.

Although this year will be a strange time for the jockeys and horses, at it will be the first time in the history of the Ebor Festival that it will be ran without a crowd due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions. In fact, it’s been a strange time throughout lockdown with very limited sport on at all which has thrown up racing fans. We’ve had to be looking elsewhere for us to get our weekly entertainment from the comfort of our homes but according to Super Wins Casino reviews, they’ve really captured the attention of the regular pre-lockdown punter. They’ve recently seen an influx of traffic through their site due to lockdown due to a shift in gambling patterns where gamblers have moved over to the casino world to replace their love for live sport.

With being the reigning champion of the Nunthorpe Stakes comes added pressure; but that is something that Battaash will thrive off. Last year he went on to win the race and also set a new course-record time and therefore returns this year after wins at Royal Ascot and Goodwood to put himself in contention again. Battaash is 4/6 to win the race.

However, in contention to be challenging Battaash for the title is Art Power; having a steady start to 2020 but picking up just before Coronavirus started with wins at Royal Ascot and Lacken Stakes, Tim Easterby’s 115 rated horse will be right up for bringing home the win. Art Power is 6/1 to win.

If you do fancy an outside punt, we aren’t sure that this isn’t the race for you – in fact 8 of the last 12 runners have contested in the King’s Stand Stakes and also no winner sent off bigger than 20/1 in the race’s history. Our tip? Battaash to win by 5 lengths.
