The totesport Cesarewitch handicap at Newmarket marks the end of the flat season in horse racing. Run over the Rowley mile course at Newmarket, the race is a real test of stamina due to the 2m 2 furlong trip for the 3 year olds and over taking part.
The 2008 Cesarewitch favourite is Askar Tau, who is the clear market leader at best odds of 4/1. This French 3 year old boasts an impressive record of 5 straight wins from her last 5 races, including a victory at Newmarket back in August. Furthermore, Askar Tau is proven over various conditions making it the obvious favourite.
However, favourites have a poor record in this race with just one favourite obliging in the last 10 years – that was Detroit City back in 2006. This stat will see many punters opt for longer odds horse in the Cesarewitch such as Mamlook or Wicked Daze who both have strong credentials 2007 winner Leg Spinner is available at 14/1, however it has proven a very difficult race to retain the crown for, meaning this talented horse should maybe only be backed each-way.
The crucial factor for betting on the Cesarewitch is the draw, as all winners over the last 10 years have been drawn in stall 17 or higher.
