2017 Epsom Handicap Results

  • 1st: #1 Happy Clapper
  • 2nd: #9 Tom Melbourne
  • 3rd: #13 Snitzon

The Epsom Handicap is one of the key feature races of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the $1 million Group 1 mile classic taking place at Royal Randwick Racecourse in late September or early October annually. Epsom Handicap betting is open months out from the 1600m feature with all-in Epsom Handicap odds on the likely contenders popular with the punters at bookmakers like Ladbrokes.com.au.

Epsom Handicap odds online are dominated by local Sydney spring racing stars with good form over the track / distance. There are a host of nice lead-up races, the results of which also affect the early Epsom Handicap betting markets, including the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes and Group 2 Shannon Stakes.

Favourites in Epsom Handicap betting have a strong recent record in the race with the latest to salute for the punters being the super mare Winx (2015). Sydney-based trainer Chris Waller also usually has a stranglehold on the Epsom Handicap betting odds in the spring as he prepared three of the four winners of the race between 2013-16.

2017 Epsom Handicap Betting

The season’s updated Epsom Handicap 2017 betting odds will be available to race fans below once released complete with links to the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Epsom Handicap Quinella

A quinella is a popular wager that can see the bettor collect big money simply by picking the first two horses past the line correctly. This type of bet is often popular on horses that are favourites to win, but who may be unreliable. A quinella bet is simply a wager on which two horses will finish first – it doesn’t matter which horse finishes first or second, as long as both of your selections complete the race in the top two.

An Epsom Handicap quinella is undoubtedly a popular selection amongst horse racing fans, and can net punters an incredible return on even the most casual of Epsom Handicap betting. The 2015 Epsom Handicap quinella was:

  • Winx
  • Ecuador

Despite Winx finishing first and Ecuador second, if you had made an Epsom Handicap quinella on both horses you would have won a payout even had their positions been the other way around.

Epsom Handicap Exacta

In contrast to a quinella, many fans would prefer to bet on an Epsom Handicap exacta due to its higher payout. An exacta is simply the correct prediction of which horses will finish first and second in a race. Unlike a quinella, which allows variations of the horses’ finishing positions, an exacta requires the correct pick of first and second.

The 2015 Epsom Handicap exacta looked very similar to the Epsom Handicap quinella:

1st – Winx
2nd – Ecuador

However, as you can see, first and second places play an integral part in the success of the bet. While a quinella bet would have allowed either horse to finish first or second, an exacta needs the placings to be correct in order to earn a payout.

Epsom Handicap Trifecta

A trifecta is a standard horse racing betting option, and allows punters the chance to win big payouts for correctly choosing the first three horses past the line. While an Epsom Handicap trifecta is a potentially lucrative wager, it can be difficult to accurately select all three horses in order, and is one of the greatest challenges of Epsom Handicap betting. For this reason alone, many bettors choose instead to place a wager on a three-horse box trifecta, which allows any combination of your chosen horses.

If you are looking to make an Epsom Handicap trifecta bet, there are numerous options available to you. The following is the winning Epsom Handicap trifecta from 2015:

1st – Winx
2nd – Ecuador
3rd – Sons Of John

In this specific race, Winx was sitting as the favourite in Epsom Handicap betting to win the race, decreasing the value paid on the Epsom Handicap trifecta. In terms of an Epsom Handicap trifecta, a correct pick for these three horses could potentially earn bettors several thousands of dollars for every one dollar wagered.

Epsom Handicap First Four

A First Four bet is one of the toughest horse racing bets to pull off, but still extremely popular thanks to its lucrative payout odds. While not all that much Epsom Handicap betting is on First Four bets, punters after massive payouts love to try their hand at picking this bet type. There are several variations of a first four wager, including standout, multiple, box, etc., and in that respect it is similar to a trifecta.

For an Epsom Handicap First Four bet to pay out, the punter must correctly select the first four horses that will cross the finishing line. A standard first four bet requires the order of the horses as well, hence the heightened odds, although a first four box wager is popular thanks to its allowance of any combination of finishing positions, so long as you have picked the first four horses.
