2023 Jorvik Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Wednesday, 17 May 2023

We’ve got a number of four-year-olds lining up in the Jorvik Handicap this week, although there are also some older horses including Tasman Bay and Sam Cooke. The latter is a seven-year-old and perhaps his level of experience will come in handy over one mile and four furlongs, with William Haggas having a number of runners in this race.

Haggas has Tasman Bay running along with La Yakel and there are going to be horse racing betting sites who are offering extra places when it comes to the each-way betting. It’s all about finding a horse that is going to stay the pace over this distance, with Real Dream having won very recently and that could stand him in good stead.

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.
