2023 Queen Mothers Cup Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 17 June 2023

There are plenty of horses in with a lively chance of securing a victory over one mile and four furlongs on Saturday, with the bookmakers now offering odds for the Queen Mother's Cup Handicap which is set to go off at 2pm on Saturday. One of Kihavah and Bollin Margaret are likely to go off as one of the favourites, although the betting is wide open.

Both of the above horses both come into this race off the back of a victory, with Dream Harder running for Ian Williams and this runner has hit the frame on a number of occasions, while Lexington Knight is also a lively each-way contender for an encounter which will be a stern test of going over one mile and four furlongs at the Knavesmire.

2023 Queen Mother's Cup Handicap Tips

Kihavah could present trainer Adrian Paul Keatley with a solid chance of victory in the 2023 Queen Mother's Cup Handicap, with the six-year-old having secured recent wins at York Racecourse and Market Rasen recently. At the Knavesmire on 17 May, there was a victory over one mile and four furlongs, while this was followed up by a win in a handicap hurdle over a much longer distance.

Bollin Margaret is trained by Tim Easterby and the six-year-old was triumphant at Thirsk last time out, with the horse obliging as the 6/4 favourite when landing a six-length victory over one mile and four furlongs. This came after finishing second over one mile and two furlongs at Redcar, although there’s a reasonable chance of victory based on her pedigree.

Dream Harder has failed to win any of his previous four encounters, although the Ian Williams-trained charge was fourth place at Chester on 11 May in a fairly competitive handicap race, with the horse performing reasonably well on soft ground and perhaps the going will be more to the runner’s liking on this occasion.

Lexington Knight goes for Richard Hannon and the five-year-old was victorious at Doncaster Racecourse in early June, with a slender win being recorded in a handicap race over one mile and four furlongs. There could be more to come from the horse now that they have been in the winners’ enclosure, with the horse previously second at Windsor on 22 May.
