2023 Finale Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Friday, 13 October 2023

There are some talented three-year-olds going to post for the William Hill Finale Handicap, with Shadow Dance having scored in his previous outing and the Roger Varian-trained charge is definitely one for the shortlist here. Urban Outlook is also among the market leaders and it’s little surprise considering that there have been back to back wins.

Spectacular Style is another Roger Varian-trained runner who could go particularly well, while Dreams Adozen and Kardia are also priced at similar odds. Expect the bookmakers to increase the place terms for this race and take advantage of this from an each-way point-of-view. There are sure to be competitive odds available.

2023 York Finale Handicap Tips

The William Hill Finale Handicap will feature as many as twenty runners battling it out at York Racecourse, with Shadow Dance among the horses who are competing. The three-year-old has been competitive all season and claimed a win at Haydock Park in early September when winning over one mile, three and a half furlongs.

Urban Outlook has similarly solid credentials, with the horse landing a victory at Chester before following this up with a win at Haydock Park. The latter of these came over one mile and six furlongs, with Andrew Balding saddling this runner to a win in a handicap race at the Roodee and it’s interesting to note that Dreams Adozen was second in that race.

Indeed, the latter was only beaten by a head and the Charlie Johnston-trained runner has finished first or second in the past six races. A win at Chester was achieved by over fifteen lengths and she was really impressive on heavy ground. Perhaps it will be harder on drying turf and Spectacular Style could be the one to beat instead.

Roger Varian has another leading contender in the form of this three-year-old, with the horse underwhelming over one mile and four furlongs last time out at Newmarket. However, there was a Novice Stakes win at Hamilton and we might also consider Kardia who runs for trainer Edward Bethell after some encouraging performances this term.
