2023 Dash Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 29 July 2023

Punters should be able to secure some big prices when it comes to each-way betting on the Sky Bet Dash Handicap, with the bookies offering 8/1 the field at the time of writing. Paws For Thought is a five-year-old with a big chance of landing a victory, with Gale Force Maya an older counterpart who is carrying more weight for the encounter.

Korker has had successive runner-up performances and perhaps the four-year-old is capable of a higher level over six furlongs at York Racecourse, with Bielsa having achieved some notable performances this term. We could see as many as twenty-two runners competing in this Class 2 encounter and the going looks set to be on the soft side.

Paws For Thought has landed three successive wins and it’s possible that the Donald McCain-trained runner can continue his victorious ways. There was a handicap win over six furlongs at Hamilton, with this coming after a seven furlong triumph at Haydock Park. Wind surgery led to the improvement which started at Chester when achieving a comfortable win.

However, any number of horses can land a victory at the Knavesmire in this encounter and that includes Gale Force Maya, with the seven-year-old finishing third in the most recent outing. In the William Hill Summer Stakes, the runner produced a credible run and the Michael Dods-trained charge could be set to hit the frame for a second time.

Korker is an interesting runner and there have been two successive second places, with the latest of these being in a Sprint Handicap at Sandown Park on 7 July. This came after a strong performance in the Gosforth Park Cup Handicap where the horse was touched off by Vintage Clarets and this could be a good each-way selection.

Bielsa could also be a popular selection and the eight-year-old ran relatively well at the Royal Ascot meeting when finishing tenth in the Wokingham Stakes. He now returns to the Knavesmire which was the scene of a previous victory, with the horse winning the Churchill Tyres Handicap over six furlongs in the middle of May.
