A Closer Look
The Ebor Handicap was first run back in 1843 and has produced some memorable winners over the years, including Sergeant Cecil in 2005 and All The Good three years later. Muntahaa joined that exclusive list of champions 12 months ago when scoring for Jim Crowley and John Gosden, recording a winning time of 2.53.48, three second faster than the Nakeeta who won the year before. Backers were able to get their hands on a cracking 11/1 SP and that was the second winner at double-figure odds in as many renewals.
The trends show us avoiding the favourite is a shrewd tactic when searching for the winner of this race and we have to go all the way back to Purple Moon in 2007 to find the last jolly that lived up to expectations. That’s worth keeping in mind when approaching this race and we wouldn’t suggest siding with the market leader.
The favourite tag has been a bit of a curse over the years and that tag has been given to Kings Advice during the ante-post betting. We’re sure connections won’t be thanking traders for heaping the pressure on. The jolly was as big as 7/1 with 888sport in the early betting, but that won’t attract too much attention. We’re taking a shot at Raheen House at 9/1 with 888sport.
