Ebor Handicap

The Ebor Handicap Betting 2013 - Opinion The Likely Favourite

One of the highlights of the York Ebor meeting is the famous Ebor Handicap. For those that did not already know, the York Ebor Handicap is named after the shortened Roman word for York, Eboracum and was first run way back in 1943 and was called the ‘Great Ebor Handicap’.

It is not normally a great race for favourites, with only three winning since 1991. Indeed punters will be interested to know that its the outsiders who seem to do better with three 25/1 winners in recent years and a 100/1 winner (Mudawin) in 2006. A number of horses are being well backed to run a big race this year including Opinion who is a likely runner for Sir Michael Stoute on the Knavesmire.
