Welcome to the ultimate Ebor Festival betting guide! First held in 1843, the Ebor Festival is the highlight of the calendar at York's Knavesmire racecourse. Taking its name from the shortened form of the Roman name of York (Eboracum), it takes place over four days in late August every year. The Juddmonte International is the feature race on Wednesday's opening card with the Yorkshire Oaks and Nunthorpe Stakes the other Group 1s in the week.

The final day is based around the most valuable flat handicap race in Europe, the Ebor Handicap. Over a distance of one mile and six furlongs (2800m), it often sees owners of useful jumps horses try to win a big pot on the level. It’s a key date in the horse racing betting diary.

Ebor Festival Ante-Post Betting

Ante-post betting on the Ebor Festival will be available with most of the top horse racing betting sites. The daily feature races are largely priced up around two months in advance, just after Royal Ascot. The main guide races for the Juddmonte International are the Prince of Wales's Stakes at the royal meeting and the Eclipse at Sandown. Sometimes you will see Classic contenders drop down from the Derby trip, or step up from a mile.

The Nunthorpe market is usually shaped by the King's Stand at Royal Ascot and the July Cup. Sure enough, the runner-up to Blue Point in the King's Stand, Charlie Hills' Battaash, and Newmarket winner Ten Sovereigns head the betting for the five-furlong dash at the Knavesmire. Aidan O'Brien's three-year-old will be having his first run at the minimum trip while Battaash aims to back up his third consecutive win in the King George Stakes at Goodwood.

The Ebor looks as competitive as ever with just one horse currently trading at single-figures in King's Advice. Mark Johnston's son of Frankel has vaulted to the top of the market thanks to victories in staying handicaps at Newmarket's July Festival and Glorious Goodwood.

Johnston has another potential contender in Duke of Edinburgh winner Baghdad while Joseph O'Brien's Irish Derby hero Latrobe and John Gosden's Jorvik victor First Eleven are other interesting challengers. Dermot Weld bids for a first win in the race with recent Sandown listed winner Falcon Eight.

Ebor Festival Feature Race - Sky Bet Ebor (£1,000,000)

The highlight of the week for the punters and a real puzzle for horse racing betting fans, the Ebor is a perennial favourite at the Knavesmire. First staged in 1843 as part of the first Ebor Festival, it is a valuable and prestigious staying handicap with high-class jumps horses often involved. The great Sea Pigeon won the Ebor in 1979 carrying 10 stone with Alastair Down saying “the whole place went bonkers” when he was declared the victor in a photo finish.

Willie Mullins won with Sesenta in 2009 and Dirar took victory for Gordon Elliott 12 months later having been third when sent off favourite for the Galway Hurdle on his previous run. In 2016, Tony Martin was victorious with Heartbreak City who went on to finish second in the Melbourne Cup.

Just two winners have been sent off at single-figure odds in the last 10 years, but the biggest shock in the race's history came in 2006 as Mudawin gave Jane Chapple-Hyam her first big-race success at 100/1.

There was once a perceived advantage for low draws and low weights but recent renewals have dispelled those trends. The draw on the Thursday is televised but anxiety over a high draw is now a thing of the past. Just one horse – Flint Jack (1922-23) – has won two Ebors.
