Emily Upjohn 11/8 FAV in Epsom Oaks Racing Odds

There is a big opportunity here for EMILY UPJOHN to kick her credentials up further through the roof.

She is the 11/8 favourite as she looks to make it four wins in four* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

Emily Upjohn has been nothing but stellar.

She has built on all the promise that she showed in easily winning her debut at Wolverhampton in November.

Under a penalty for her season opener at Sandown, she won in style.

She then put in a stunning run at York on her latest.

Emily Upjohn scored the win in York’s Musidora by more than five lengths three weeks ago.

The move up to this mid-distance shouldn’t trouble her and she is the one to beat.



Tuesday could pose a huge threat

With some excellent form to read from her runs, TUESDAY may be the one that poses the favourite the biggest question of all.

Tuesday is a quote of 8/1 in the Oaks betting 2022* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

She is very well bred for this kind of contest.

Tuesday has also looked in fantastic progressive form the last twice.

Since easily winning a maiden at Naas on her reappearance (Group 3) she has taken place finishes in the 1000 Guineas and the Irish 1000 Guineas.

Tuesday really looks to be putting her middle-distance claims together.

She can produce a run capable of upsetting the odds.

Nashwa on a big hattrick bid

Another of the big players to look at for Epsom Oaks tips is NASHWA who has been producing the goods.

The daughter of Frankel has rapidly been on the up, putting in an eye-catching run when bolting up at Haydock on her reappearance.

Nashwa was then sent to Newbury for a Listed contest at 10f and won by almost two lengths in that one.

She is well worthy of a place at this level and she looks like a good finisher.

If she’s in touch as she is moved up in distance, it will be fascinating to see if her hot turn of speed gets there.

Nashwa is a quote of 10/3 in Oaks betting odds 2022* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

With The Moonlight not out of the picture

From a longer quote of 11/1 in Epsom Oaks odds, there is WITH THE MOONLIGHT who warrants respect* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

There is really nothing wrong with her claims in this competitive field.

She won two of four runs as a juvenile, but it was her opening effort as a 3-year old that really piques interest.

With The Moonlight delivered a commanding performance to win the Pretty Polly at Newmarket a month ago.

That was some effort by her and With The Moonlight was still going away at the finish line.

With The Moonlight therefore should have this longer trip in her.

Concert Hall could sing a happy tune

There was a Group 3 win delivered by CONCERT HALL during her campaign as a juvenile.

She made a good impression on her reappearance too when winning a listed contest at Navan on a 10f trip.

Her follow up to that was third in the Irish 1000 Guineas, and the shorter trip never really seemed to suit her there.

But Concert Hall looks really game and with a lot of potential.

At this distance, she has to be worth a look as well from 9/1 in Oaks racing tips* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

The Rest of the runners

KAWIDA had a good juvenile campaign and went close in a Group 3 fixture over in France five weeks ago. Her form overall isn’t as strong as others though.

MOON DE VEGA has continued to get better and better but struggled at the end of the Cheshire Oaks a month ago.

ROGUE MILLENNIUM has won her first two racetrack appearances, the latest of those in the Life Idl Oaks Trial. She is going to need a lot more on Friday.

THE ALGARVE was fourth in the Musidora Stakes at York, behind winner Emily Upjohn. She may have needed that run under her belt and place claims are not totally out of the question.

THOUGHTS OF JUNE beat Moon De Vega in the Cheshire Oaks a month ago, as well as a subsequent Group 1 winner. She had the run of the race and is not a forlorn hope.

TRANQUIL LADY claimed a Group 3 win at Naas last time out, which gives her a shot at the Oaks. Bare form doesn’t read that great however although the trip will probably suit.

Predictions & Tips for Epsom Oaks Racing Odds

Right at the top of the Epsom Oaks tips, there has to be EMILY UPJOHN who continues to look nothing short of a high-class performer.

Emily Upjohn is the 11/8 favourite and is well worthy of the favourite tag* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

We do like the look of TUESDAY however, who could easily go places and with a big run expected, can push the favourite all the way.

Tuesday gets on the shortlist for Epsom Oaks betting tips at 8/1* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

The final selection for the shortlist is WITH THE MOONLIGHT from 11/1* (odds recorded at 21:37 GMT on June 2nd 2022 at Bet365).

There is a chance that she will handle the trip better than most and her performance in the Pretty Polly was eye-catching.
