Ebor Festival Tips and Predictions
When Cheltenham Festival, The Grand National and Royal Ascot have all come to pass, there can be a disappointing period where there’s no horse racing action to bet on. Races at all of the most prestigious racecourses will always take place but if you’re looking for a proper festival to bet on later in the summer, Ebor Festival takes place towards the end of July and is just as good as the others. All major horse racing events have a handful of key races which experienced punters always look to bet on early. Ebor Festival is made famous by some big named races and while a lot of websites fail to cover them, The Winners Enclosure has sections of their site devoted to all horse racing festivals, as well as previews and recommended bets on every single race at Ebor Festival.
Methods of Betting at Ebor Festival
If you’re looking to bet at Ebor Festival, the best way of doing this is through finding one of the many bookie stands which are situated throughout York Racecourse. The bookmaker prices fluctuate almost constantly, so it makes the most sense to shop around and contemplate your next move before backing your own horse tips with the quickest possible option.
There’s WiFi available at York Racecourse, so you can also back your bets using your favoured bookmaker on their respective app or website. The biggest and best races at Ebor Festival include Strensall Stakes, Nunthorpe Stakes and City Of York Stakes. A highlight for most punters is the Ebor Handicap, which has brought more exposure to the event and is the one run that bettors will look to bet on first and foremost.
For those who are new to betting on horse racing, there are some ways to increase your chances of picking out a winner. Backing the outright favourite will always come as being a tempting way of landing a horse bet but just because the bookies see that horse as being the most likely to win, doesn’t mean that it’s set to win the race. No outcome is ever certain to go a specific way so you’re best doing your own research before staking any bets.
Building your own bets can be quite easy. All you need to do is check out the current form and past results of horses you could be tempted to bet on, as well as the horses your chosen tip will be racing against, and that should be enough to determine what could happen. If you then find the strongest odds from looking at the best bookmakers on the market, your Ebor Festival tips will have some legs.
