2023 Thirsk Hunt Cup Betting Odds at Thirsk racecourse

Saturday, 06 May 2023

We’re looking forward to the Thirsk Hunt Cup Handicap and whether Autumn Festival can bounce back from a disappointing performance last time out. David O’Meara’s charge has previously been really impressive at various racecourses, with the four-year-old trading at a short price and the horse could be well handicapped.

Empirestateofmind has multiple entries and the five-year-old could line up at Thirsk in an attempt to land in the places, while The Turpinator returns to the track after a lengthier absence and the same applies to Billyb who could be capable of running a big race for Ann Duffield.

2023 Thirsk Hunt Cup Tips

The 2023 Thirsk Hunt Cup Handicap is a eagerly-anticipated race where there are lots of potential winners. Autumn Festival is trading as the favourite to win this encounter despite finishing well down the pecking order at Musselburgh last time out, although there was five consecutive wins last season which could have punters flocking to plce a bet.

David O’Meara trains a runner who won the Rock Handicap on 10 October at Musselburgh, with Danny Tudhope also successful as a jockey on a horse that won the Old Gravel Pit Lodges Handicap, with that being preceded by a double success at Chepstow and there was also a win at Sandown which marks the charge out as a potential winner.

The Turpinator is a talented six-year-old who ran on the all-weather in early December and ran on well at 20/1 to land third place. That was over seven furlongs and there could be more to come from a runner who runs for trainer Grant Tuer. The six-year-old might have the experience to come out on top when it comes to this one mile encounter.

Austrian Theory runs for Charlie Johnston and the four-year-old was underwhelming on 10 April when running on the all-weather at Kempton, while there wasn’t a huge amount to recommend him in the previous two encounters. However, Billyb was successful over one mile at Wolverhampton at the end of October.
