2024 Jorvik Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Wednesday, 15 May 2024

The runners and riders for the Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Jorvik Handicap have now been confirmed, with Marhaba The Champ and Klondike heading the betting market for this encounter over one mile and four furlongs. It will be interesting to see which of the two horses goes off as favourite, with Crystal Delight coming next in the betting.

The latter won last time out and could be set for further success at York Racecourse this week, with Kihavah a talented seven-year-old bidding for a first win of the season. Chillingham also has the potential to run well for Edward Bethell, with Flash Bardot also given a chance by the layers after a win last time out.

There are fourteen runners going to post for the Jorvik Handicap which will be run over one mile and four furlongs. Marhaba The Champ returns to the track after a couple of successes last season, with the horse winning at York in August when landing the spoils in the Sky Bet Handicap and there could be more to come despite a disappointing last at Newmarket.

Klondike is trading at a similar price and the four-year-old will run for the first time after a wind surgery op, with the horse having opened his account with a win at Newbury in April 2023. This was followed by finishing second in a listed race at Goodwood, although some will look for a bigger priced alternative in the race.

Crystal Delight could tick the right boxes and the Harry Eustace-trained runner was victorious in his last showing when scoring at Epsom last month. That victory came over one mile and two furlongs against six other rivals, with the horse having also performed well at Newmarket towards the end of September.

Flash Bardot catches the eye at a backable each-way price and the four-year-old was victorious for trainer Jack Channon in his last race. This was a victory against six other rivals at Doncaster, with the horse capable of finishing in the frame once again and there were wins at Catterick and Newbury in autumn last year.

Real Dream is a worthy favourite if the horse is sent off at the shortest odds, with Sir Michael Stoute saddling a runner who was able to succeed on the all-weather track at Kempton Park recently. In a handicap race in early May, the four-year-old was able to claim a success as even money favourite and this was over the identical distance of one mile and four furlongs.

Perhaps wind surgery will continue to prove beneficial and there was a maiden stakes victory at Doncaster in June last year, although Tasman Bay could be a horse who is able to make an impression at the Knavesmire and he looks to be the best William Haggas-trained runner in the race, with the five-year-old having had a lengthy absence away from the track.

2022 was a disappointing year for the horse, although some of the performances in 2021 as a three-year-old were far brighter, including a second-placed finish in the King Edward VII Stakes, with La Yakel part of the same stable and the four-year-old will have Tom Marquand on board for this race and could be set to run a decent race.

La Yakel was able to win at Southwell and Ascot last year before finishing fourth in the bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap, with the trip likely to be suited and this horse will also want the going to be firm. Sam Cooke is also a horse that merits respect after scoring back to back wins and the seven-year-old is an experienced campaigner.
