The race in 2007 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 132%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Kincsem Handicap, the over-round has been 122%, which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £122 which is bet.

Kincsem Handicap Trends:

Looking at the future form, is the winner worth following next time out? From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Kincsem Handicap next time out then you would have backed a total of 3 winners. Backing all 20 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of -9.30. Before placing your bet on the 2024 Kincsem Handicap see which other runners today are being backed on the racing predictions page.

When looking over the past 20 renewals, a time of 2:02.81 was set by Road To Love in 2006, which is the quickest time over that period, the runner was trained by Mark Johnston and ridden by Richard Hills. The slowest winning time was set in 2023 when Royal Rhyme won in a time of 2:10.41, booked to ride was Clifford Lee by the trainer K R Burke.

These are the top three quickest-run Kincsem Handicap over the last 20 renewals:

  1. Road To Love (2:02.81) in 2006
  2. Gibeon (2:03.67) in 2015
  3. Forest Of Dean (2:03.79) in 2019
What the expert says...
The bet365 Mile Handicap Stakes which is held at Newmarket has been a decent race to follow runners into here as those running in that race last time out have produced seven winners of this race since 2005 with Qaader in 2021 being the last to do so.
