The Newmarket Handicap offers $1million in total prize money, with a first prize of $600,000, and this year‘s star filled field promises to be one of the most exciting in recent history.

Newmarket Handicap Odds and Betting Bonuses

The 2012 Newmarket Handicap odds favourite is the John McNair trained Hay List priced to win in the $4.00 range.

As such, a free $300 ‘win bet’ available to Punters Paradise visitors through exclusive Free Newmarket Handicap bets, would offer $1,200.00 at a $4.00 price should Hay List be declared the first horse past the winning post.

Next up is the John O’Shea trained Foxwedge and Jason Warren trained Bel Sprinter, who share win odds in the $7.00 range, with the Joseph Pride trained Rain Affair rounding out a very formidable top four priced in the $7.50 range.

Newmarket Handicap Form Guide

The free Punters Paradise Newmarket Handicap form guide, which includes a unique Easy Selections tipping menu, contains detailed performance profiles for every runner in the event.

Among the Newmarket Handicap form guide facts that have helped establish the favourites to win and place include:

- The Glyn Schofield ridden Hay List is fresh off a strong first up start in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes, placing second to the unbeaten 'Wonder from down Under' Black Caviar by less than two lengths.

- The Corey Brown ridden Rain Affair is fresh off a domination victory in the Apollo Stakes, and is seeking his tenth straight victory, the second longest such streak in Australian behind Black Caviar.

- The Ben Melham ridden Bel Sprinter, victorious in five of his first six career starts, had a strong showing in the sensational Group 1 Oakleigh Plate finishing just one and half lengths behind the winner.

Other key Newmarket Handicap form facts show:

- At 58.5kgs the burly Hay List would set a modern day Newmarket Handicap weight-carrying record with a victory. Surpassing Shaftesbury Avenue, who carried 58kgs past the winning post in 1991.

- King’s Rose shares the same jockey (Luke Nolan) and trainer (Peter Moody) as the past two Newmarket Handicap winners, which were Black Caviar (2011) and Wanted (2010).

- Bart Cummings is the most successful trainer in Newmarket Handicap history with eight trophies, and with a victory by Rock Classic he would own a win in four different decades.
