2023 Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes Betting Odds at York racecourse

Saturday, 17 June 2023

There are four horses trading at a significantly shorter price than the rest of the field when it comes to the Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes, with Israr and Quickthorn heading the betting, while Roberto Escobarr and Lone Eagle are also runners who are being respected by the bookmakers. It will be interesting to see which horse is backed leading to the off.

Over one mile and six furlongs, it’s worth finding a horse that is guaranteed to stay the trip and the going is sure to be on the firmer side at the Knavesmire, with the 3.05 set to be a race where the best horse racing betting sites have price boosts available for an encounter where the each-way terms are also worth checking out.

2023 Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes

Israr is the betting favourite to win the 2023 Race To The Ebor Grand Cup Stakes, with John & Thady Gosden’s horse potentially the one to beat at the Knavesmire. The four-year-old was beaten into second at Newbury last time out, although it was still a bold showing from a horse who was runner-up to Haskoy in the Al Rayyan Stakes on 20 May.

This was a Group 3 encounter and we might expect more from a runner that was below par in the November Handicap at Doncaster in early November, with Quickthorn also among the favourites for this race. In the Yorkshire Cup Stakes, the runner was fourth out of six runners over one mile and six furlongs although this was certainly a quality field.

Roberto Escobarr is a William Haggas-trained runner who claimed a victory at Sandown Park on 25 May, with the experienced six-year-old scoring in the Henry II Stakes. This time around, Tom Marquand will be on board a horse who appears to be improving with age considering that this was the runner’s first win in seven attempts.

Lone Eagle is another runner who has struggled to secure a victory, with the horse finishing second in the Ormonde Stakes at Chester on 11 May, with the charge outperforming odds of 10/1 to finish ahead of favourite Changingoftheguard. This was an improvement on a Newbury showing where the horse finishing well down the pecking order.
