2023 Epic Value Handicap Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Saturday, 06 May 2023

It’s no surprise to see Maghlaak lining up as one of the betting favourites to win the William Hill Epic Value Handicap although the plain truth is that there are lots of horses who can potentially win this showdown at Goodwood racecourse. The trip of one mile and two furlongs will be more of a test of stamina than speed and there are lots of contenders.

Aussie Banker has twice finished runner-up this season, with Richard Hughes training a four-year-old who appears to have been handed a favourable handicap. Bad Company is an older contender and Jim Boyle’s horse was able to oblige last time out, with Farasi Lane among the front runners in the betting and it will be interesting to see which way the odds go.

2023 Epic Value Handicap Tips

There’s a trip of one mile and two furlongs to encounter when it comes to the William Hill Epic Value Handicap, with this Class 2 race having as many as seventeen runners lining up and hoping to land a share of the prize money. Maghlaak has been away from the race track for nearly a year although perhaps the charge has the class to land a victory.

The four-year-old scored consecutive wins in 2022, with the horse winning a one-mile Novice Stakes race on the all-weather at Kempton, with another novice stakes win being recorded over one mile and two furlongs when being sent off at 2/1, with Jim Crowley giving the horse a tremendous spin and there are bright prospects for this horse.

Aussie Banker might be capable of running a big race, with the horse last seen running in the All Weather Vase Mile Handicap over one mile on 7 April. The JP Murtagh-trained horse was narrowly beaten into second over the distance of one mile, with favourite Dingle beaten into third place and there was previously another runner-up finish.

Bad Company comes into this race off the back of a win, with Jim Boyle training a horse who won on soft ground at Epsom last time out. Pat Cosgrave gave the horse a tremendous spin to win by one and a half lengths, with Farasi Lane having scored at Southwell on the all-weather in March before finishing further down the order at Lingfield in his last race.
