The 2016 Cameron Handicap will take place on Friday, September 16th.

The other group race conducted at Newcastle at the same meeting as the Cameron Handicap is the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m), then the next day on a Thursday the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) is held, giving punters plenty of top betting opportunities!

While the Cameron Handicap is one of the top races held at Newcastle each year, the country’s top thoroughbred event is the Melbourne Cup.

Cameron Handicap Betting Guide

When looking to enjoy a bet on the Cameron Handicap at the online bookies, it is always a good tip to look at other earlier Sydney Spring Carnival races as a guide.

Lead-up races that horses may run in before the Cameron Handicap include the Group 3 Concorde Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill in late August and the Group 3 Tramway Quality Handicap (1400m) at Randwick in early September.

Quality sprinters and gallopers that contest the Cameron Handicap often continue onto Sydney to run in the Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) at Randwick in late September, and the Cameron Handicap – Bill Ritchie Handicap is a popular betting double.
