2011 Epsom Handicap Nominations

September 26th, 2011

The 2011 Epsom Handicap Nominations have been available for a while but with the final field due out tomorrow let’s take a moment to recap the major chances.

It’s worth remembering that a fair hunk of these horses are dual nominated for The Metropolitan as well so acceptance time will be a very important period.

One horse that we know will be headed for the mile feature though is Sincero, the star horse that has taken Australia by storm over last season and this season.

First he won the Stradbroke Handicap and now from two spring runs he remains unbeaten and a dominant favourite for the 2011 Epsom Handicap.

His main competition is expected to come in the form of a group of talented mares headed by Pinker Pinker who also returned to winning form last start.

There is a crucial stat working against her though, no mare has won the Epsom Handicap since way back in the 1970’s.

They say records are set to be broken but that’s a dominant piece of information and one that punters will no doubt be taking note of ahead of the race.

It takes a smart punter to do his form correctly and a smart punter to put that form into play with the right bookie.

Be a smart punter and bet with Luxbet where you’re guaranteed the best odds and will always come off better than the TAB!
