Royal Ascot Handicap Races
Handicaps are horse races which bring together horses of differing abilities, the concept being that the better quality horses in a given race carry more weight than the poorer entries. As such the horses who race each other in a handicap have an equal chance of winning the race. The perfect handicap race outcome would be one where all the runners crossed the line at the same time.
This of course never happens, although very often races can be very close affairs. Other factors have to be taken into consideration when looking at handicap races, such as form, race draw, jockey bookings, recent race record, the betting and so many other small aspects that make picking out a winner of a handicap race very challenging, but also a lot of fun.
