York betting with William Hill

York horse racing betting

York is one of the premier Flat racing venues in the world, staging top-class thoroughbred action throughout the summer. It is home to some of the biggest festivals in racing, notably it's four-day Ebor Festival in August which stages Europe's richest handicap and one of the biggest York betting races of the season, the Ebor Handicap.

The racecourse, superbly located on the outskirts of the historic city, is widely regarded as the 'Ascot of the north' and its festivals, as well as plentiful music nights, are always major social events.

York betting – the big meetings/races

Duke of York Stakes - One of the big early season sprints, taking play on the opening day of York's May Dante Festival. The 6f Group 2 contest is often the first port of call of the season for some of the best sprinters around, as in 2018 when this prestigious sprint was won by dual Group 1-winner Harry Angel.

Musidora Stakes – A leading trial for the Oaks at Epsom and a race that often throws up a potential star of the Classic generation. This 1m 2f 56yds Group 3 contest has been won by top-class fillies like Reams Of Verse and Sariska, who both went on to win the Oaks.

Dante Stakes – One of the key Derby trials but a Group 2 race in its own right, staged on the second day of York's three-day Dante Festival. Many winners of the race have gone on to Epsom glory.

Yorkshire Cup - The first race in the long-distance division of the British Champions Series, which concludes with the British Champions Long Distance Cup in October.

John Smith's Cup – One of the most prestigious and valuable handicaps of the Flat season and one of the biggest York betting races of the summer. It is widely regarded as one of the most competitive events in the calendar and has proved a very difficult race for three-year-olds to win in recent years.

York Stakes – This Group 2 contest is run over the same course and distance as the Juddmonte International later in the season and is often a springboard for horses to go on and compete in that top-level contest. The York Stakes is nearly always won by a horse who goes on to win at Group 1 level.

International Stakes – Along with the Eclipse Stakes, this is one of the stellar ten-furlong contests of the Flat season and the most valuable race staged at York. It was has been won by legends of the turf like Giant's Causeway, Sea The Stars and the mighty Frankel, who won one of the strongest ever editions of the race in 2012.

Great Voltigeur Stakes - Held on the opening day of York's four-day Ebor Festival, this 1m4f Group 2 contest serves as a key trial for the St. Leger, which takes place at Doncaster the following month. Sir Michael Stoute has a particularly good record in this race.

Yorkshire Oaks – A Group 1 1m4f contest for three-year-old fillies and an obvious next target for fillies who ran well in the Oaks at Epsom. The great Enable won this race in 2017 before going on to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe that autumn.

Nunthorpe Stakes – One of only two Group 1 sprints run over the minimum distance of five furlongs in Britain, the other being the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. This speed test is often won by a horse that goes to run very well in the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp.

Gimcrack Stakes – A prestigious Group 2 sprint for two-year-old colts and a race often won by horses who go on to have great careers as sprinters, notably Blue Point who won this race in 2016 before going on to win the Group 1 King's Stand Stakes two years later.

Ebor Handicap – The richest handicap run in Europe and one of the most competitive York betting races of the summer. Run over a distance of just shy of 1m6f, this high-profile event now throws up horses who go on to run in the Melbourne Cup, like Heartbreak City who was a dominant winner of the Ebor in 2016 but denied by just a head a couple of months later in the 'race that stops a nation'.

York odds – impact on ante-post betting for future races

The biggest race run at York all season is the Group 1 Juddmonte International,a York betting contest that has major ramifications on ante-post betting for the top autumn ten-furlong or 1m4f contests. Champion Stakes bettting and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe betting are obvious races most likely to be affected.

Melbourne Cup odds could change dramatically on the back of the result of the Ebor Handicap, especially if connections indicate that a trip to Australia is on the agenda.

Derby betting can often be turned on its head if the Dante Stakes produces an impressive winner, a sentiment that also applies to Oaks betting after the Musidora.

Two-year-old races like the Gimcrack Stakes can have an impact of big sprint races for the following season, notably Commonwealth Cup betting at Royal Ascot.

York course characteristics

York is as fair a track as they come, with flat, left-hand sweeping bends and a long straight that allow horses to win from any position. It is seen as one of the finest racing surfaces in the world, benefitting greatly from the implementation of a new draining system after a period of huge upsets, especially on soft ground.

There is a straight track that stages 5f and 6f contests, with a 7f chute that also acts as the start of races over 2m6f.

The track is seen as galloping, with a testing home run of almost five furlongs for races on the round course, and stamina really does become a key factor when the ground becomes soft. Runners tend to come down the middle of the track in the straight nowadays, unless a bias is discovered on either rail.

York betting tips

The days of York throwing up surprise results appear to have gone since the implementation of the new drainage system and the track is now one of the fairest in the land.

Draw biases are fairly limited, although low numbers have an edge in races over a mile, where the field only have around a furlong to sort themselves out before they hit a left-hand turn.

Being drawn near the pace is now much more important than stalls position in most races so identifying front-runners is crucial, especially in big-field sprints like the Nunthorpe Stakes where the field can spread across the track.

In round-course contests, runners can often come from a long way off the pace, especially if the front-runners get racing too far out, which does happen at York. With that in mind, the ability to stay the trip and further is crucial, especially when the ground is soft. Be sure to focus on horses with proven stamina when checking York betting, because non-stayers rarely win on soft ground on the Knavesmire.
