2023 Constantine Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 26 August 2023

The 2023 Constantine Handicap is a relatively difficult horse race to predict, with Aberama Gold among the market leaders. The horse is named after a Peaky Blinders character and he could be capable of pulling off a gamble over six furlongs, although there are a number of other runners who are trading at a similar price to land a victory.

Summerghand is among them and the nine-year-old will hope to demonstrate that there’s life in the old horse yet. This is another David O’Meara-trained runner with strong claims, while Gale Force Maya has yet to win in any of four outings this season although Orazio has scored twice for trainer Charles Hills.

2023 Constantine Handicap Tips

There’s a big field set to line up in the 2023 Constantine Handicap on Saturday 26 August, with any number of horses capable of landing the major prize money. This includes Aberama Gold who has secured four different victories this season for trainer David O’Meara, with the six-year-old going up against a stablemate.

Summerghand appears to be coming back into form based on recent outings and it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the nine-year-old went close considering the overall track record. In the William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap, the horse was sent off as the 9/2 favourite before being narrowly beaten by a head against Sophia’s Starlight.

Gale Force Maya is an interesting contender who was successful at York and Ayr last autumn, although victories have been scarce this season. Michael Dods will hope for a change of fortune and the horse was last seen finishing fourth at Pontefract when being sent off as the 4/1 favourite in a fillies’ stakes.

Orazio was a full sixteen lengths behind Aberama Gold when finishing down the order in the Stewards’ Cup at Glorious Goodwood meeting, with the runner sent off as the 100/30 favourite before flattering to deceive. However, some punters might be prepared to give the horse another chance and there was a solid showing in the Wokingham Stakes.
