Epsom Handicap Tips

When trying to find the winner of the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m), keeping some important factors on your side can help you.

The Epsom Handicap can, and usually does, prove to be a real challenge when it comes to narrowing down the field to finding the winner.

The field has a maximum field size of 20 runners and more often than not the race does attract a full complement of runners – making it a tough race to analyse.

Our experts assess all the Epsom Handicap runners, their form, barrier draws, speedmap and more to help come up with our betting pointers and tips to help you back the winner.

Our expert tipsters provide their 2024 Epsom Handicap tips and selections following the barrier draw.


How to Bet on the Epsom Handicap

There are plenty of betting options on Epsom Handicap, and for those punters waiting for the big event, you’ll need to be patient as the feature race is run toward to end of the day.

Betting options include:

Win Bets

Exactly as it sounds, a Win bet is betting on a single horse to win the race.

Place Bets

Betting for the place generally pays around one quarter of the win odds and covers three placings with your horse having to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd to be successful.

Each-Way Bets

Half your stake on the Win and half your stake on the Place is an each-way bet. For example: $20 each-way gives you $10 on the win and $10 on the Place.

Quinella & Exacta

Picking the first two horses past the post will give you the Quinella or Exacta. The difference between the two is with a Quinella, your horses can finish in any order, and in an Exacta, your two runners must finish in the exact order you selected – unless you box them.


The first three horses past the post. You can select three horses in order or you can box three horses meaning they can finish in any order. Flexi Trifectas also give you the option to add more than three horses in any combination for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The cost of a flexi Trifecta is calculated by the amount of runners you have in each placing.

First 4

The first four horses past the past. Same rules apply as Trifectas with straight out First 4 in order, Boxed First 4 or Flexi First 4.

Same Race Multi

Some bookmakers give the option for a same race multi where you can select certain runners to finish 1st, Top 2, Top 3 and Top 4. Odds are displayed next to each horse for each betting option, and odds are combined in a multi bet. The best bookmakers to bet on Epsom Handicap for Same Race Multis include: Ladbrokes & Neds.


The ‘Quaddie’ is one of the hardest bet types to land but can be very rewarding with massive returns. All Quaddie wagers go into a pool, and the money is shared out among winners. The bigger the odds of each winning leg, the more likely the Quaddie will pay more as more people are knocked out of the pool. To land the Quaddie, you need to select four winning horses in four selected races. You can have one runner per leg or multiple runners, but the more runners you have, the more it costs to place the Quaddie bet. Flexi options allow punters to place large Quaddies but take a smaller percentage for a smaller outlay.
