2023 Macmillan Sprint Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 17 June 2023

The runners and riders will be plentiful when it comes to this six furlong encounter at York Racecourse, with the 2023 MacMillan Sprint Handicap featuring a host of three-year-olds who will battle it out over a short distance in order to land a big victory at the Knavesmire. Quinault might be the one to beat and there have been a string of recent successes.

However, the favourite’s odds indicate the wide open nature of the race and Tough Enough has also tasted a recent success, with the majority of the runners trading at double figure betting odds. This means that there are lots of options when it comes to securing some place money and it’s worth hunting down the each-way value.

2023 MacMillan Sprint Handicap

Quinault is the horse with the most outstanding pedigree when it comes to this 2023 MacMillan Sprint Handicap, with Stuart Williams hoping that his horse is able to keep scoring victories. Having obliged on the all-weather at Chelmsford in April, the horse then obliged with a victory at Brighton in early May and was able to keep the winning run.

There have been two further successes at Newmarket, with the first of these coming over six furlongs in the Lope Y Fernandez At The National Stud Handicap, with the horse then returning to the same track and scoring at a shorter price, although this race is a more stubborn test of the runner’s credentials and it will be interesting to see what happens.

Tough Enough is carrying slightly more weight for this encounter and the three-year-old can’t be discounted, with James Tate having saddled his horse to a victory at Windsor Racecourse. In early June, there was a six furlong success in a Windsor Sprint Series Qualifier after winning a Novice Stakes outing at Wolverhampton on the all-weather.

Catch The Paddy, Frankness and Pure Angel are the next horses in the betting, with Kevin Ryan training the former who was second on their previous outing. That was in a seven furlong handicap at York, while stablemate Quintus Arrius could also perform well and there have been two wins in the previous three races.
