Epsom Handicap tips are insider selections provided by bookmakers and racing specialists on which horses to back and sack in that spring’s edition of the $1 million mile feature at Randwick Racecourse. Consulting Epsom Handicap betting tips before placing a punt on the race in early October can help give you a winning payout on the classic race and win big at the bookies!

Epsom Handicap tips usually favour the shorter-priced runners in the race who have a stellar record in the race; the last double-figure Epsom Handicap winner to salute at longer than $10 being Captain Sonador ($14 in 2010).

Epsom Handicap Favourite

No matter what you wager on, whether it’s horses, greyhounds, or sport, almost every contest you come across will be offering one particular competitor as “favourite”. Horse racing is no different, and a lot of the time punters will only get their tips from online bookmakers, such as Ladbrokes.com.au.

Epsom Handicap tips flow in thick and fast during the lead-up to the event, and the Epsom Handicap favourite is often the result of whatever horse the majority of tips point to. However, backing the favourites isn’t the only option. The Epsom Handicap favourite will most likely have the shortest odds – and therefore smallest payout opportunities – while an outside chance who has had a good lead up to the race could be sitting in lucrative odds.

That said, Epsom Handicap favourites have a strong recent record in the race so a good tip is to stick with the shortest-priced runners in the Epsom Handicap odds.

The last Epsom Handicap favourite to win was Winx ($3 in 2015) who was the third straight Epsom Handicap winner for successful Sydney trainer Chris Waller.

Epsom Handicap Lead Up Races

Lead up races are a fantastic opportunity for punters to build their own Epsom Handicap tips. Watching horses that are set to compete in the Epsom Handicap is a great way to see what sort of form the favoured thoroughbreds are in, and whether any outside favourites are looking to challenge for the win.

Good lead-up races to keep an eye on when doing your Epsom Handicap tips including the Group 2 Theo MArks Stakes and Group 2 Shannon Stakes, both run earlier in the spring at Rosehill Gardens.

Preparation is vital to getting the best Epsom Handicap tips, and in this way it is always a smart move to bet on early odds whenever you get a hot tip. Online bookmakers like Ladbrokes.com.au have fixed odds released weeks and even months in advance, so as soon as you know who you will be backing, head over to the bookie and take advantage of the exceptional odds.

The longer you wait to make a bet, the shorter the odds will become, so speed is key when taking advantage of Epsom Handicap tips.

Epsom Handicap Bets at Online Bookmakers

Finally, joining an online bookmaker is one of the easiest ways to get regular horse racing tips including those for the Epsom Handicap. Reliable bookies such as Ladbrokes.com.au and bookmaker.com.au are your one-stop-shops when it comes to horse racing betting, so if you are looking for Epsom Handicap tips, as well as regular bonuses and promotions, then joining a trusted online bookmaker is an ideal way to enjoy your horse racing bets.
