2024 Irish Oaks Betting Odds at Curragh racecourse

Saturday, 20 July 2024

Aidan O’Brien is no stranger to success when it comes to the Irish classic races and the handler could be set to experience another victory in the Irish Oaks. Savethelastdance is the highest-rated horse in the field and the horse is trading as the market leader to land a victory, although her previous outing demonstrated that she could be beaten.

Warm Heart has been running well all season and some punters will think the filly is better value at the prices, with Bluestocking having lively each-way chances after some bright performances for trainer Ralph Beckett. Lumiere Rock has scored successive runner-up spots and could also feature in the reckoning.

Savethelastdance has had a stellar season, with victories coming at Leopardstown and Chester before a second placed finish at Epsom. Despite being sent off as the 5/6 favourite in the Epsom Oaks, the horse fell short against eventual winner Soul Sister, although the bookies still think that the runner has the best chance of victory.

Previously to this race, there was a win in the Cheshire Oaks at the Roodee, with an outstanding twenty-two length victory on that occasion. However, Warm Heart has been a three-time consecutive winner recently, with the latest of these coming in the Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes at the Royal Ascot meeting.

Aidan O’Brien saw his charge sent off at odds of 13/2 before triumphing over one mile and four furlongs, with this coming by two and a half lengths. The horse that ran into second place was Lumiere Rock and the Joseph O’Brien-trained runner could be a good each-way shout on this occasion.

Bluestocking is also trading among the favourites, with Ralph Beckett training a runner who was third in the Ribblesdale Stakes last time out. It wasn’t the most clear run from the horse on that occasion, with the runner previously finishing in second behind Warm Heart in the Haras De Bouquetot Fillies' Trial Stakes at Newbury Racecourse.
