Portland Handicap Betting

The Portland Handicap takes place on an exciting day for horse racing betting as it is held on the same day as the St Leger Stakes at Doncaster racecourse during September. The race is part of the four-day St Leger Festival at Doncaster and it has proven to be a popular betting heat over the years.

The Portland is a heritage handicap for thoroughbreds aged three and over, with entrants taking on the 5 furlong & 140 yard trip. It has attracted plenty of betting interest over the years and punters might be tempted to look out for the racing odds of past winners as Halmahera was a repeat winner in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

Favourites haven't tended to prosper in the race over the years though, although the recent trend of 5-year-old winners could be one to note. Interestingly, trainer David Marnane has enjoyed multiple successes in recent years and his entries are sure to attract some interest in the betting.
