2024 York Handicap Betting Odds at York racecourse

Thursday, 16 May 2024

There’s some quality racing at York Racecourse this week, with Clarendon House among the betting favourites to win this five furlong encounter. Robert Cowell trains a runner who has been in the frame in his three races this season, with the six-year-old likely to be a popular each-way selection, while Korker also has bold claims.

This horse was seventh on his seasonal debut, while Spartan Arrow returns to the track after nearly a year bidding to claim a victory as a four-year-old. Meanwhile, Thunder Moor has enjoyed a couple of smart victories this season and could go well, along with Arecibo who is an older contender.

Clarendon House heads the betting market and the horse will be bidding to improve on a fourth placed finish out of five horses at the beginning of May when the runner lined up at Goodwood. Previously to this, the runner had claimed third spot from a field of ten at Wolverhampton, with the horse finishing fourth out of thirteen runners at Meydan.

Korker is a five-year-old that lines up for Karl Burke and the horse finished seventh out of thirteen runners in the Prix Cor de Chasse when sent off as the 6/4 favourite, with the horse previously obliging with a victory at Windsor in October. The horse also ran well at Ascot when finishing second out of nine horses.

Spartan Arrow is a four-year-old who could be highly progressive and the horse was able to oblige when last seen running at Goodwood. The 15/8 favourite was able to secure a victory by nearly two lengths, with this coming after finishing fifth out of eleven horses at Windsor in June.

Thunder Moor has solid each-way credentials, with the four-year-old having landed back to back victories at Bahrain in February. There was a win in the Al Sakhir Cup By Aluminum Bahrain over five furlongs, with this coming after a victory in the House Me Cup, while Arecibo is a nine-year-old whose form also catches the eye.

Whenthedealinsdone was the winner of a handicap race at Ascot last September although the five-year-old has failed to claim victory in any of his previous four outings. He was seen most recently at Goodwood Racecourse when finishing fourth out of six runners over five furlongs although the horse was slow to get into his stride on that occasion.

Mountain Peak has been away from the course for the best part of a year, although the eight-year-old is being respected by the bookies based on achievements thus far. Ed Walker saddles a horse that won the Betfred Heritage Handicap at Ascot on 9 July, with the horse then underwhelming at Ascot and the same thing happened at York.

Alligator Alley was also disappointing on the all-weather at Newcastle last time out, with the horse looking to rediscover the form that saw the charge enjoy a New Year’s Day win at Southwell, with that being the third successive win. However, Equilateral could be set to go well for Charles Hills and Ryan Moore is booked for this ride.

The horse’s past three outings were all at Meydan, with the horse finishing fourth in the Nad Al Sheba Turf Sprint at odds of 20/1, with the runner having failed to win any of his previous nine outings. Ultimately, there is not one strong candidate who can claim a victory and that means it could be worth taking a couple of each-way picks against the field.
