This year’s Epsom Oaks latest betting gives the impression of a ultra-competitive renewal with very little splitting the top three fillies in the betting.

At the time of writing Secret Gesture (5/2 with Bet365) holds favouritism for the fillies’ classic to be run on Friday 31st May at Epsom Downs. The Aiden O’Brian trained Moth is second favourite at a best price of 10/3 (Sportingbet) and Liber Nauticus out of the Sir Michael Stoute yard is a 7/2 (Betfred) chance.
Secret Gesture propelled herself to Oaks favouritism with a ten length victory in the Lingfield Oaks Trial and trainer Ralph Beckett did not hesitate in comparing the daughter of Galileo to his 2008 Oaks winner Look Here.
Ballydoyle’s main hope for Epsom on Friday is Moth who was a close up third in the 100 Guineas after finding some serious traffic difficulties before running on very strongly. O’Brian is set to be multi-handed again as he looks to win the Eprom Oaks for a second straight season and Snow Queen (20/1 Sportingbet) and Say (12/1 Bet365) could both take their chance.
Liber Nauticus is unbeaten in two starts including victory in the Musidora Stakes at York that was workmanlike rather than spectacular but breeding suggests she will appreciate this step up in trip around Epsom.
One of the other contenders for the classic is Banoffee (10/1 with Bet Victor) who has been supplemented for Friday’s feature after her Cheshire Oaks win earlier this month.
Ralph Beckett’s other potential runner is 16/1 shot Talent who ran twice last year and narrowly won at Kempton at the second time of asking. Her Pretty Polly Stakes win this season is one to take note of, that Oaks trial has been a strong indication in past years and she could offer great each-way value for Epsom.
