2020 Nunthorpe Stakes Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The 2020 Nunthorpe Stakes will be another classic edition of the York thoroughbred race and the field will look to emulate the 2018 win of Alpha Delphini.

The Nunthorpe Stakes market is packed with quality thoroughbreds, including the likes of Battaash, Ten Sovereigns and Mabs Cross. 

It's going to make for an exciting race at York and we have found the best value tips below.

2020 Nunthorpe Stakes Best Bet - Ten Sovereigns @ 4.00


Aidan O'Brien lines up the three-year-old colt which was a brilliant winner of the July Cup and it's tough to overlook that form.

The son of No Way Never scored by almost three lengths on that occasion and considering the level of opposition he faced, it certainly was his career-best win.

He kicked off his career with three consecutive wins. His debut was a seven-length win at Curragh and he won the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket at only his third start.

4.00 is better value than we thought he would be paying, so take the odds on offer.

2020 Nunthorpe Stakes Best Each Way - Mabs Cross @ 6.00


Mabs Cross might not be the most popular thoroughbred in British racing but she's a nice type which has run well this season.

The five-year-old mare is coming off a fourth-placing behind Blue Point at Ascot and she also finished third behind Battaash in the Temple Stakes.

She was good enough to take out the Group 1 Prix Longchamp in France last year and if she can bring that form to York, she'll be a winning threat.

The odds are worth the slight risk punters will be taking for Mabs Cross.

2020 Nunthorpe Stakes Best Roughie - Soldier's Call @ 13.00


Soldier's Call doesn't quite have the same form lines as the top two picks, but he could show up here at double-figure odds.

The three-year-old colt is coming off a fourth-placed finish at Curragh and although that form isn't overly hot, it has winning credentials.

He has form at York, which many of his rivals don't and that's only going to bring him into contention.

Punters are getting good odds and they're certainly worth taking.

Verdict

Ten Sovereigns is all class and should be tough to beat in the Nunthorpe Stakes. 

Looking to take him down will be Mabs Cross, which has winning claims and Soldier's Call could cause a big boilover at odds.

Best Bet: Ten Sovereigns @ 4.00 at bet365 - 8 Units
Best Each Way: Mabs Cross @ 6.00 at bet365 - 1 Unit
Best Roughie: Soldier's Call @ 13.00 at bet365 - 1 Unit
