York Ebor Meeting Betting 2011 - Midday Could Join Twice Over in International Stakes

Ascot Races

Welcome to four days of top class horse racing that takes place at the York Ebor Festival each year in August. Without doubt it is the most popular racing Festival held in the North of England where each year, the Knavesmire racecourse hosts 24 York Ebor Festival races including, three Group One races, The International Stakes, The Yorkshire Oaks and the Nunthorpe Stakes. The York Ebor Festival Races are some of the best of the summer with many of the top yards targeting the Festival as one of their main aims of the season.

The Nunthorpe Stakes Odds are always one of the most exciting of the year with a number of top class sprinters heading to the Knavesmire once again in 2011 going for the win. One that could take his chance this season is Sole Power who of course won the race last season as a 100/1 shot, he will face a tougher task this season with a number of strong contenders set to oppose him including the likes of Overdose and Bapak Chinta.

The Yorkshire Oaks Odds are often the highlight of the week up at York and no doubt we will see pleny of nice fillies take their chance in 2011, we had a top class winner in Midday last season and it always seems to attract some of the best around over the trip. The Ebor Handicap Odds are as always looking interesting following the the announcement of the entries, one that could take his chance and run well is Mount Athos who is having a nice eason for trainer David Wachman.

Ebor Handicap 2011

The big race of the week is of course the Ebor Handicap Odds themselves, it is one of the most popular races of the season always attracts a good quality field on the second day of the meeting. We have had some excellent winners of the race in recent years with some great value on offer punters at the same time, the last two winners in Sesenta and All The Good both winning the Ebor at a great price of 25/1.

This years race is alreay shaping up to be another cracker with betting looking tight at this early stage, Harris Tweed and Martyr are being well backed while The Betchworth Kid could be back in the race after coming seventh in the race last year.

Juddmonte International Stakes 2011

The International Stakes is also known as the Juddmonte and in recent years has become an important and popular race, it is run over 1m 2f so often attracts some of the very best horses around. This is highlighted with the fact that the sensational Sea The Stars won the race in 2009 while Rip Van Winkle claimed the prize last season for Aidan O'Brien.

The Juddmonte International Stakes Odds for 2011 are looking just as exciting with Rip Van Winkle the new favourite for the race following the injury to Harbinger, the Aidan O'Brien horse will be the mount of Johnny Murtagh and he will be well backed following a good last could of 18 months. Also set to take their chances could be the likes of Byword and Buzzword who picked up the German Derby recently, both will be well backed and will be looking forward to taking on Rip Van Winkle.
