The 2010 Epsom Handicap runs today, and you can watch it on Channel 9 at 4:10PM in the Epsom Super Saturday coverage. Below are our top Epsom Handicap 2010 betting tips.
The Group 1 Epsom Handicap is a 1600 metre race held under open handicap conditions. It marks the peak of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, and offers $500,000 in prize money.
Our hot tip, rated special to win, is Black Piranha with odds of $17.00 to win at Ladbrokes.com.au. The 7-year-old gelding will be starting from barrier 2 and carry 58.5 kg. This season hasn’t been optimal for him, but he has previous wins in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) and has a lot of experience racing in the wet.
Another runner with good chances is Danleigh, in the Epsom Handicap odds at $21.00 to win and $5.50 to place. This 7-year-old gelding will be starting from barrier 10 and carrying 59kg. Danleigh has had a very suitable set of lead up runs to the Epsom Handicap and a potentially rainy run could feed right into his strengths.
Last of our top Epsom Handicap 2010 betting tips is Leica Larrikin, with odds of $21.00 to win and $5.50 to place. The 5-year-old gelding will start from barrier 7 and carry 52kg. While he has yet to win a Group race, he has rarely been entered in one that plays to his strengths like the Epsom Handicap – Leica Larrikin’s best performances have all been at the 1600 metre mark or beyond.
