More red-hot racing action is on the way as we shift into October. Headlining the action in the opening weekend of the new month is the Sun Chariot Stakes, a Group 1 affair from Newmarket.
This is one for the Fillies and Mares and the race is part of the British Champions Series. The flat fixture has been up-and-running since the 1960s and it is a testing 1 mile trip on the straight. Last year’s winner was Fonteyn, trained by Kevin Ryan.
She was the fifth 3-year-old in the last seven renewals of the race to land the score, which could be a trend to keep an eye on for the latest horse racing betting. Trainer Aiden O’Brien has been the most successful in that period with two wins.
There will of course be a quality lineup for the 22023 renewal of the Sun Chariot including course and distance winner Inspiral from John & Thady Gosden. She is the clear ante-post favourite as she comes back into action after a Group 1 success in France last time out.
Meditate, Just Beautiful and Msqe De Sevigne are also expected to put together strong runs. The latter has powered up the ratings recently after back-to-back wins and is looking like a hot prospect. Among the other exciting races from the day’s action at Newmarket on Saturday there is the Tattersalls October Auction Stakes (Class 2).
Shifting over to Redcar on Saturday, October 7th the William Hill Two-Year-Old Trophy (Listed) piques interest for the afternoon along with The Guisborough Stakes (Listed). There are a couple of Group 3 races from Ascot on the weekend as well, with the Cumberland Lodge Stakes and the Bengough Stakes featuring from the famous racetrack
Returning to Newmarket, the Suffolk course grabs a lot of the headlines for the next couple of weeks. Some further big features are coming up from there when looking a little further ahead, including some of the season’s biggest flat action.
The Dubai Future Champions Festival is up on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th of October. During the two-day meet, there will be the renewal of the Old Rowley Cup, the Challenge Stakes, Fillies’ Mile and the Dewhurst Stakes all on the radar. There is plenty of ante-post action already happening for those.

When it comes to betting on horse races, you’ll quickly discover there are many different types. Probably the most common is a single bet, which involves just one race and one outcome. However, there are many other options too.
Another popular bet is an each-way bet, which is essentially split into two parts with one half involving a win and the other a place in a pay-out position. It’s possible for punters to put a stake on multiple races too, with bets such as an accumulator, double and single, or even placepots and jackpots involving a whole day’s racing at one course.
When you’re looking at the latest odds for betting at horse racing, the number presented represents the amount of money you can expect to win as a return.
For example, if a horse’s odds are 10/1, for each ‘unit’ you bet, you will receive 10 in return plus your stake – if you win. So if successfully you bet £1 for a horse to win at 10/1, you’ll receive £10, plus your £1 stake, totalling £11.
