Stewards' Cup Odds: Nahaarr the favourite for Goodwood event

A hugely competitive field line up for the 2020 Stewards' Cup.
A hugely competitive field line up for the 2020 Stewards' Cup.

Nahaarr is a warm favourite for the 2020 Stewards' Cup, which is the feature race on the final day of Glorious Goodwood on Saturday afternoon and is a devilishly difficult assignment for punters...

The six furlong sprint handicap is one of the toughest punting conundrums on the Flat racing calendar, but in Nahaarr you have a progressive four-year-old, who was hugely impressive when landing a Newbury contest in style two weeks ago, and the William Haggas-trained raider will look to follow that success up this weekend.

Handed a 7 lb rise by the handicapper for that impressive two length success at Newbury, Nahaarr shaped like there's a lot more to come as the season progresses, and he's entitled to be hovering around the 9/2 mark at the time of writing, but he will face a multitude of classy sprinters on Saturday, and while he looks the one to beat, there could be a whole plethora of notable adversaries bidding for glory.

Mark Johnston's Meraas is another progressive sprinter and has been in red-hot form of late racking up a trio of wins from four outings since early June. His last victory came in eye-catching fashion at Hamilton Park, and like Nahaarr he has been given another hike up the handicap, but running off a mark of 103, the three-year-old could be another that is still ahead of the handicapper, and it's why he is trading around the 8/1 mark.

There's a significant chasm in the betting between Nahaarr, Meraas and the rest of the field, with the aforementioned pair the only two priced in single figures, but beyond the fancied duo there are some eye-catching contenders at double-figured odds.

Wokingham Stakes winner Hey Jonesy will look to follow up that fine Royal Ascot success and is 14/1, but having failed to get his head in front countless times before that Wokingham win then there could prove to be more popular options against the front two in the betting.

Richard Hannon's Lexington Dash is in the form of his life, but failed to make it three wins on the bounce last time out when fourth at Newmarket, however, his consistency this season makes some appeal from an each-way perspective at 14/1. Summerghand (9-10) and Gulliver (9-9) sit at the head of the handicap, and both are available at 14/1 for this test. The former disappointed in Group 3 company last time out, but was a winner prior to that flop, so a return to handicap company could see him flourish, while Gulliver ran a huge race to finish second at the Curragh last time out and is entitled to be on the scene at the finish.

Watan chased home Nahaarr home at Newbury last time out and the bookmakers have differing opinions over his chances, with some firms going 11/1 about him landing the prize, while some are attractively offering 16/1, but he has to be of interest.

At bigger prices, Atalanta's Boy (25/1) and George Bowen (28/1) are two contenders in the lower echelons of the handicap that could make the most of a featherweight and make the frame at least, while former Group winner Mr Lupton is dangerously handicapped off a mark of 101, and a return to form would see his current odds of 33/1 to be monstrous in what is sure to be fascinating cavalry charge on the south coast.
