In six days’ time the Investec Oaks will be run, and there are plenty of horses running in that race, but from a strictly betting point of view, there is only one horse that punters are backing on the ante post betting markets.
That horse is Pink Dogwood, and due to the volume of ante post bets and wagers placed on it, its odds have been dropping weekly to the point where it is now just 7/2 at most bookies site. Those odds may seem high in value for a favourite but once you discover, as you will do below, just how high the odds attached to the second favourites are you will see why plenty of punters have been backing it to win.
Before I look at the some of the other runners in that race, keep in mind that there are some slightly different each-way betting terms available, depending on just which bookie you bet at, but the generally available each-way betting terms and one fifth the win odds to three places.
As for just which horse is being backed as the second favourite, well currently there are two horses, those being Iridessa and Sea Of Faith and it will probably be best to back them each-way if you fancy either of their chances for their odds of 14/1 will ensure a decent return if you do back either of them each-way.
Sparkle Roll Another Each-way Possibility
We will soon discover if the punters back the favourite on the ante post markets have been correct and whether Pink Dogwood will win the Investec Oaks race, however there are plenty of other horses that could up their game so to speak and win, if everything does fall into place.
One other horse that is certainly worth considering, from an each-way betting point of view is Sparkle Roll, and that horse is currently trading at or around the 16/1 mark.
Other Horses Running in the Investec Oaks
I suspect that it will be one of the four horses that I have named up above that are going to win and get placed in some order, and therefore it is fairly easy to dismiss the remainder of the Investec Oaks field which include Hermosa, Wonderment, Manuela De Vega, Just Wonderful, Tamniah, Star Catcher, Happen and Entitle all of which are trading at odds of 20/1.
Chablis, Secret Thoughts, Tarnawa, Villa D’amore, Antonia De Vega, Fleeting, Peach Tree, Maqsad and Goddess are all 25/1 shots and next in the field you have the 33/1 shots which are Lavender’s Blue, Lastochka, Grace And Danger, Frankellina, Delphinia, Coral Beach, Baba Ghanouj, Anapurna and Dancing Vega to name but a few horses trading at those odds.
