Online Horse Betting Options Ahead of Hackwood StakesPosted by: Anthony Yaylor
Online horse betting players can rejoice as the Hackwood Stakes are slated for this weekend. For those sports wagering players who are unfamiliar with the event; the Hackwood Stakes is a flat horse race (Group 3) held in the UK that is watched by fans across the globe.
2017 Hackwood Stakes (G3) – Saturday, July 22nd

With this weekend’s online horse betting event looming over our shoulders, racebook players will want to know what the best picks are for Saturday’s action. Over the past couple of years, there have been some classy acts that have won the Hackwood Stakes, including The Tin Man , Music Master , Deacon Blues  and Regal Parade . However, all of those winners were place at Group One level and the only steed entering this weekend’s event whose profile can rival theirs is Magical Memory.
A five-year old horse and Charlie Hill’s own, Magical Memory has also won at the Stewards’ Cup and the Haydock Sprint Cup third. Although the steed has been displaying poor form lately, especially at Royal Ascot in the Diamond Jubilee, many bettors feel that Magical Memory is set to make a return to his winning ways.
He should be a favorite ahead of this event, but there is a growing suspicion that he is far from being considered a shoo-in. This is more so because Magical memory only beat Kachy by a short-head at the aforementioned Haydock event.
The Hugo Palmer trained Koropick is also drawing some interesting online horse betting attention. However, many feel that Koropick’s finish at Newcastle last time can be attributed mostly to Kimberella getting stuck in traffic early on. Koropick will be looking to prove his doubters wrong this Saturday.
Similarly, stable mate Gifted Master has taken a massive step back in trip here, since he hasn’t been in any action since March. Usually racebook players don’t like to wager on a horse they haven’t seen compete in such a long time span.
Eqitraan is coming off a Listed contest win at Sailsbury just a little over a month ago. That victory came by the smallest of margins. Champion jockey Jim Crowley will be behind the reins this Saturday and will be looking for a much more decisive finish.
Eqitraan, a three-year old Helmet colt, has only finished outside of the top three just once in his lengthy career (7 year). With Crowley, who is a seasoned veteran himself, in the saddle, online horse betting fans are expecting great things from the colt this upcoming weekend.
Another good betting option worth mulching over is Tupi, who is facing eye-catching odds in each-way chances. Throw in the fact that Ryan Moore will be taking command, and some racebook players would rather take Tupi over Eqitraan.
A lot of this has to do with the 5-year olds recent shocker at the Cammidge Trophy held in Doncaster. Tupi was able to leave the field behind in dust, in just his first start of the season
