York Ebor Festival 2023: Trends & Stats…

The Flat Festivals are coming at us thick and fast right now!

Seems like only yesterday when Glorious Goodwood slid itself into the form books and now we are staring down the barrel of the 2023 York Ebor Festival!!

I’m deep in the trends and stats for the four day meeting as I’m covering a chunk of the races for full NTF members… so I’ll keep this post short n sweet…


2023 York Ebor Festival: Trends & Stats…

This is always a good meeting to dig into the Race Trends for and here are the trends for two of the races I’m covering at York this week.

Wednesday – 4:10 SkyBet Stayers Handicap (Class 2)

Race has been run as a Class 2 Handicap for the last 11 renewals so I used those renewals to compile the following trends…

11/11 0-2 previous starts at track

11/11 no more than 4 runs without at least placing

10/11 27 or less career starts

10/11 19 or less handicap starts

10/11 1-5 starts in season

Trends Shortlist…



Thursday – 3:00 Clipper Handicap (Class 2)

15/15 aged 3yo – 6yo

15/15 previously won at least at C3 level but not above C2 level

15/15 racing off a mark between 1lb & 8lb higher than their last win

15/15 previously won over at least 7f but no further than 1m0.5f

15/15 last win came over 7f-1m at C2-C3 level

14/15 had 6-15 previous handicap starts

14/15 8-23 previous career starts

Trends Shortlist…



Overall York Ebor Festival Angle…

I’m always digging deep into the stats side of things when comes to the big festivals and I noticed the following angle that is worth bearing in mind for the Ebor Meeting this week…

(since 2014) York Ebor Festival | Horses Aged 5yo, 6yo or 7yo | Won 1 of their last 2 starts | Previously WON at the Ebor Festival | Days Since Last Run 11+

10/17 | 59% S/R | +£27.08 BFLSP – W&P 15/17 | 88% S/R (E/W returns +£38.24)

100% above expectation

…a neat little angle that pinpoints previous York Ebor Festival winners that come into the meeting with recent winning form on their CV…

Keep it in mind when your face is buried deep in the form book over the next few days…

      I’ve got the angle plugged into a database and then I’ll highlight any qualifiers to my members in the daily race guides for York…

      To manually identify them I suppose you’d start by looking for any course winners (C) or (CD) that were aged 5, 6 or 7, that had won 1 of last 2 starts and were running off a break of 11+ days… then you’d need to look at each of them individually and see if their course win came at a previous Ebor meeting… probably wouldn’t be too much of a manually drain as you’d be able to ignore any 2yo & 3yo races straight off the bat 👍
