  1. The big handicap at York on Thursday is the Hambleton Stakes. This class 2 event is open to horses aged four years or older and is run over 7 furlongs and 192 yards. Off time is 15.00.

    20 go to post and with some bookmakers offering 6 places it makes it an excellent betting proposition.


    I have looked at the statistics over the last 9 years and these are my key conclusions.

    It is best to avoid those horses at the top of the betting. From the top 3 in the betting there has only been 1 winner from 24 attempts.

    Horses that finished 1st or 2nd last time also have a poor record with 1 win from 28 attempts.

    The ideal weight range is 9st to 9st 5lbs with 7 wins from 43 runs and a profit of 33 points at Betfair Starting Price. The remainder have 1 win from 73 runs with a loss of 44 points.


    3 horses match these criteria.

    TOSHIZOU 12/1

    EILEAN DUBH 12/1

    POINT LYNAS 40/1

    I suggest backing these each way with bookmakers offering 5/6 places.
