2024 Cheshire Oaks Betting Odds at Chester racecourse

Wednesday, 08 May 2024

There are six horses competing in the Cheshire Oaks race on Wednesday and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top over one mile, three and a half furlongs. The bookies have installed two horses at the head of the market, with Galileo Dame and Forest Fairy regarded as the runners most likely to win the encounter.

Port Fairy runs for Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore will be on board a horse who was successful in the previous encounter, with Beeley and Lasting Love other contenders who have a lively chance of getting among the prize money places. Seaward runs for Ralph Beckett after a long absence from the track.

Dylan Browne McMonagle is on board Galileo Dame and there was plenty to like about the horse’s performance when the runner last made an appearance. The horse was triumphant at Leopardstown when beating six other horses over one mile and two furlongs. This victory was achieved on heavy ground and there could be more to come here.

The horse previously performed well at Gowran Park when finishing second out of eleven runners, with Forest Fairy claiming the spoils at Wolverhampton in the latest outing. Over one mile and four furlongs, the runner was able to score a six-length victory and a repeat of that performance could help Rossa Ryan steer home this charge.

Port Fairy lines up in a bid to secure a second successive victory, with Aidan O’Brien training a horse who landed a win at Dundalk Racecourse. Sent off at odds of 7/2, Ryan Moore was able to steer home a charge that claimed a victory by a neck. Beeley could also put in a solid showing for John & Thady Gosden and looks like each-way value.

Lasting Love and Seaward are not without a chance, with the former running for Andrew Balding and the horse finished third out of fourteen runners at Newbury in April, with the latter returning to the track after 200 days and the three-year-old is the only horse in the field that actually has an official rating.

We’re raring to go for the Cheshire Oaks and there’s an increasing amount of hype surrounding the market leader for this race. Savethelastdance was impressive a month ago and running up to a similar mark might well see the horse in the winners’ enclosure for the second time this season. The victory at Leopardstown in early April meant that he was immediately installed as favourite to win.

Wayne Lordan was on board a horse that wasn’t anticipated to deliver a victory in a Fillies Maiden although she was able to oblige at 20/1 and won by two lengths against Boogie Woogie and Azazat who were the market leaders. There could be more to come from this horse who has a mares’ allowance although Luckin Brew could be a good alternative.

Frankie Dettori will be on board a runner who was fairly impressive as a two-year-old, with the horse last seen finishing second at Pontefract back in the middle of October when losing by a neck to favourite Local Dynasty, although there was previously a win on the all-weather at Kempton in early September in a fillies’ race.

Ashtanga is another talented filly who was triumphant at Nottingham last autumn and there could be plenty of progression from a mare who is trained by Freddie & Martyn Meade. The horse won by nearly three lengths and the trip should suit a horse who is ridden by Oisin Murphy, with Sirona another one for the shortlist.
