Horse Racing Betting

It is LOVE who has been leading the way in Investec Oaks odds after the draw for the stalls was made on Thursday.

It will be interesting to see if she gets her own way in this one against the much touted FRANKLY DARLING who punters will be writing off at their peril.

This race is one of the exciting Classics from the rescheduled day of Epsom Downs racing.

It is a Fillies’ Group 1 Class 1 trip for the 8 runners that have been declared. It is a 1m 4f trip that they will be taking on. Conditions are set to be good.

Love the favourite in Investec Oaks odds

With a decent draw in the middle of the stalls, LOVE who is set to be ridden by Ryan Moore is the current 5/4 favourite for Oaks success on Saturday* (betting odds taken from Boylesports are 20:56 GMT on Friday, July 3rd 2020).

There is a justifiable reason for that as well. She is a really tough horse and scored on her recent appearance. That was in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and has no issues with staying power whatsoever.

It has been four wins in the last six efforts from the filly, but the Guineas success was the highlight and performance of her career so far.

She steamed by home more than four lengths and is going to take some beating on the extra trip.



Can Dettori score on Frankly Darling for Investec Oaks odds supporters?

FRANKLY DARLING has Frankie Dettori booked for the ride and she will be looking for a hattrick on the weekend.

This is another superb filly just as the favourite has been and she has been well supported for Investec Oaks odds at 7/4* (betting odds taken from Boylesports are 20:56 GMT on Friday, July 3rd 2020).

Frankly Darling demands all the respect in the world and scored back to back wins last month after a long time away from the track.

The most recent of those successes happened at the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot where she got the better of Ennistymon by almost two lengths. She has plenty to offer.

Can Ennistymon find enough to cause an upset in Investec Oaks odds?

It wouldn’t be a big surprise if ENNISTYMON was scrapping things out for a place or better in this one. She did miss out against Frankly Darling at Ascot, but wasn’t a world away from the winner.

Based on that performance anywhere she is the pick of the bunch behind the two front-runners without a shadow of a doubt.

She is a lightly raced filly and she does look to have more to come. But will it be enough against two very classy opponents?

Ennistymon is not to be totally dismissed from 5/1 in Investec Oaks odds* (betting odds taken from Boylesports are 20:56 GMT on Friday, July 3rd 2020).

The Rest of the Runners

We can only see a winner coming from one of the aforementioned three. The Investec Oaks odds tend to agree with that, but we will look at the rest of the field nonetheless.

GOLD WAND scored on her last trip, a success at Newbury where she didn’t really even have to find her best. She looks a highly progressive type and one to keep an eye on. This is likely too much too soon.

BHARANI STAR was fourth behind winner Frankly Darling at Ascot and she never really looked as she shaped to mount a serious challenge. There’s plenty for her to try and make up.

There has been a lack of finishing quality from PASSION, but she did take third place ahead of BHARANI STAR in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. This is going to be an even tougher ask however.

A second place finish was there for QUEEN DAENERYS on her last trip which was at Newmarket among Listed company at 10f. This is another good progressive filly and the extra trip may well play into her hands.

Rounding out the Investec Oaks odds preview is TIEMPO VUELA who will be making just her third racetrack appearance. She scored on her debut but had a poor effort at Newmarket on her reappearance, not showing any real form.

Predictions & Tips

Our nod is going to go towards FRANKLY DARLING for this one. The performance that she put down at the Ribblesdale was highly impressive without question.

With Dettori in the saddle as well, we have to lean her way because she is lightly raced and has plenty more in the tank by the looks of her. It’s the staying power that she had that appeals the most.

Even though LOVE scored that 1000 Guineas effort it wasn’t among the kind of quality that she is going to be up against in this one. If you look at those who placed at Newmarket in that, it does take some home of Love’s accomplishment.

So we fancy Frankly Darling in Investec Oaks odds at 7/4* (betting odds taken from Boylesports are 20:56 GMT on Friday, July 3rd 2020).

If an upset is going to happen in this one then we wouldn’t look past ENNISTYMON to find enough to pull it off.
