Epsom Handicap Betting

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) followed by Happy Clapper (2017), and then Kolding ($5.50 in 2019) who narrowly defeated the equal favourite Te Akau Shark. 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. Waller won again in 2019 with Kolding.

There is often value to be had further down the Epsom Handicap betting markets as well however. In 2018 the winner Hartnell jumped at juicy Epsom odds of $20.

2020 Epsom Handicap Betting

The season’s updated Epsom Handicap 2020 betting odds will be available to race fans below once released complete with links to the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au

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 2020 Epsom Handicap exacta looked very similar to the Epsom Handicap quinella:

1st – Probabeel
2nd – Funstar

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 2020:

1st – Probabeel
2nd – Funstar
3rd – Riodini

In this specific race, Probabeel was sitting as a $6.50 chance 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.
