It is around this time of year when most punters are going to be looking at the form of runners that are going to be taking part in the Investec Oaks, for with some looking around and comparing the odds on offer there will be some value on offer on the ante post betting markets on that race.
As is always the case with major flat races, some big bets have already been placed on some of the much more fancied runners, however the betting markets are not what you could cash awash with cash currently, which is reflected by the odds being offered to punters.
Take for example the early favourite to win this race, that horse is Pink Dogwood and whilst you can get odds of around 7/2 on it winning the Investec Oaks, those odds do give them impression that it isn’t a red hot favourite, but it is one to consider backing.
I say that is the odds on the two second favourites to win this race are much higher, in fact those two horses are very easy to back right now and are trading at 14/1 at most betting sites, and for reference they are Sea of Faith and Sparkle Roll.
Best Each-Way Betting Terms
I am confident that it will be each-way bets that most ante post punters are going to fancy placing on this years running of the Investec Oaks, and as such what you should be doing if that is the type of bet your fancy placing yourself is looking for the best each-way terms.
Plenty of bookies are going one fifth of the win odds to three places, so if you do spot any offering to pay out to more than three places, and there will be a good chance one or two of our featured bookies will be going so on this race, then place your bets at those bookies is my advice.
Any Other Potential Winners of this Race?
This year’s Investec Oaks race is a fairly open affair all things taken into account, and as such any of the horses that are higher up on the betting markets could land this race, and one that may just do is Hermosa, and that horse is on offer to win it at odds of around the 16/1 mark.
If betting each-way is something you are much more interested in doing on this race, then it may be worth chancing your arm on one of the current 20/1 shots, but it will certainly take some time for you to try and work out just which one could get placed.
Those horses are Tamniah, Star Catcher, Happen, Entitle, Wonderment, Manuela De Vega, Just Wonderful and Chablis and as such I would spend a little bit of time looking at their respective form figures to try and make sense of their winning chances. The next runners in the race are available at odds of at least 33/1.
