2016 York Ebor Betting Tips PT 1

The Ebor is always one of the most widely-anticipated races of the entire flat racing season as it always promises to be one of the best renewals of the Heritage Handicap circuit each time around. Big prices and very wide open races are always the order of the day and the 2016 iteration of the contest appears to be no different.


The 1m6f race ensures that it's a true test of staying specialists in the handicap circuit and the ability to get a good handle on which horses are capable of handling that distance over the York surface is going to differentiate the winners from the losers here – at least at the betting windows anyway.

As it currently stands the lukewarm betting favourite appears to be Godolphin's Antiquarium who can backed around a 6/1 margin at the time of this writing but that price is surely to fluctuate when we get to see him on the day. He gets William Buick again for this one, coming back after a few other riders had been in the irons. Buick has only a single victory in four efforts over the New Approach gelding.

Antiquarium enters the race fresh of a Class 2 handicap victory at Newcastle back in late June as he captures the Northumberland plate at a hefty price of 16/1 and that will certainly have endeared him to punters. It wasn't so much the victory but the manner of the victory tha really stood out for him since at one point it looked like he had an awful lot to do in order to pull anything to even hit the board in the race.

Instead he was able to quicken at the right moment two furlongs out and move through is competitors and stay on tidily into the finish. He hadn't been in the winners circle since May of 2015 so punters appear to be leaning towards his ability to repeat his heroics last out.
