Matched Betting the Yorkshire Ebor Festival 2020


18 Aug 2020

Updated: 19 Nov 2023

Although the Yorkshire Ebor Festival is a smaller horse racing festival than the likes of Cheltenham, Royal Ascot and Goodwood there can still be a lot of profit to be made - especially if you choose to do horse racing refunds and/or extra place offers.

When is the Ebor Festival 2020?

The Yorkshire Ebor Festival starts today, Wednesday 19th August 2020 and finishes on Saturday 22nd August 2020.

Ebor Festival 2020 Races, ITV Races and Highlights

Anytime a horse racing festival like the Yorkshire Ebor is coming up, for Matched Betting it’s always useful to know the daily race schedules, which races will be shown on ITV and which races are considered to be the ‘highlight’ for each day.

Although the bookmakers often run suitable offers for us to profit from throughout the day many have a tendency to focus their very best offers on the first ITV race of the day or on the ‘highlight’ race(s) of the day.
