Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes Odds
At the time of writing, a day out from the race, nine runners have been declared. We do have quite a warm favourite in the early betting, but there are others not far behind, so the market certainly isn’t pointing towards a one-horse race.

Top Favourites to Win the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes:
There is one clear favourite in the early betting, though we’re not talking odds-on, so there are certainly a couple of others who can be classed as well-fancied.
The mount of Jamie Spencer arrives here in fine form, there can be absolutely no denying that. After winning in France back in November of last year, the mare really has gone from strength to strength.
She returned from a 177-day lay-off to saunter clear at this track (9f) in Group 2 company back in early May, seemingly leaving a very decent field in her wake without really hitting top gear. She then backed that effort up with something very solid at the Curragh over in Ireland, landing a Group 1 prize over one mile, two furlongs. She did it well on that occasion too. If capable of repeating that form back down in trip, she’s the one they all have to beat, but the step back in trip does leave a few question marks. It’ll be interesting to see how well strong she is in the market nearer the off.
Nashwa comes here for a trainer who has won this race twice since 2013 in John Gosden, and she can probably be forgiven her below-par Group 3 effort at Newcastle last time out. After all, we should not forget that this is a filly with experience in big races of this nature. She won a Group 2 in France last June, before following up at Goodwood. That form must be taken seriously. However, she’s another one where it hard to gauge whether or not this step back in trip is a positive or a negative.
The lightly raced Remarquee must have a big chance here. Trainer Ralph Beckett won this race last year and he looks to have a very promising sort on his hands here. The filly wasn’t so good on soft ground over course and distance back in May, but she very much enjoyed the return to good-to-firm when chasing home Tahiyra at Royal Ascot last time out. That form is very, very hard to ignore and a mere repeat, let alone an improvement, would see her right there.
Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes Race Details
We saw a big-priced winner of this race last season when Prosperous Voyage came home in front, but the winner of the Tattersalls usually comes from nearer the top of the market. The 2022 winner was the first horse at odds bigger than 17/2 to win this since 2012, while six of the last seven winners have gone off at 6/1 or shorter.
Interestingly, horses do not tend to win this race off the back of a long lay-off, with none of the winners this century having longer than 75 days off the track, a stat that does not bode well for Ameynah.
