The 2014 Cesarewitch Handicap

Autumn at Newmarket Racecourse sees the action return to the Rowley Mile, after summer racing on the July Course. In one of the most popular events of the season, the Cesarewitch Handicap, runners are at least three years old, and compete over 2 miles 2 furlongs for a purse that totalled £250,000 last year. This year's event takes place on Saturday 11th October, with Trial Day scheduled for 20th September. Here we'll have a look at some of the runners and riders who must be clear favourites judging by early prices; you can stay in touch with updated odds at bookies.com.

8/1

Pallasator is a five-year-old, recently purchased by Qatar Racing and currently the favourite with most bookies at between 8/1 and 12/1. Ridden by Luke Morris since September 2012, he won at Ascot in July over 12 furlongs, following that up with fourth place in a field of 19 at York in late August, this time over 14 furlongs.

10/1

Quick Jack is a very close second favourite as of early September, at between 10/1 and 12/1. With three Flat wins and three second place finishes to his credit, the five-year-old has a slightly better win percentage when jumping, but recent form has been excellent. He won in Galway at the end of July, and had a fantastic autumn season last year with four wins and two second place finishes.

12/1

Zarkandar is another horse well worth considering, with most bookies pricing him at 12/1, though you may get 14/1 or even 16/1 if you look. He did well at the French Champion Hurdle in June, showing an aptitude for longer distances and finishing third, leading trainer Paul Nicholls to believe that Zarkander might find the 2-and-a-quarter mile Cesarewitch to his liking. His last win was in April last year at Aintree.

16/1

There's a wide selection of runners at around 16/1, including Ray Ward and Angel Gabrial; you should be able to back the latter at 18/1 right now. Ray Ward has notched up two wins and two second places in 12 flat races. Most recently he was 2nd in the Goodwood Stakes on 30th July, just being beaten in the final furlong.

Angel Gabrial is another 5-year-old and has five wins from 24 races to his credit, most recently at Newcastle at the end of June, where he was ridden by George Chaloner; David Nolan also rode him to victory at Ripon in April.
