2024 Lingfield Oaks Trial Betting Odds at Lingfield Park racecourse

Saturday, 11 May 2024

Be Happy is one of the highest-rated horses when it comes to the 2023 Oaks Trial Fillies' Stakes, with Aidan O’Brien hoping that the runner can stake a claim for victory and also announce her credentials for the Oaks later this year. However, this clash at Lingfield looks set to be an open encounter, with Sea Of Roses also a runner who can land the spoils.

The three-year-old has a rating of 100 and Andrew Balding has saddled his charge to some impressive performances this year, with Bright Diamond returning to the course after a long lay-off and Sam James is on board a runner who looks to be a backable each-way price, with Eternal Hope also capable of going well.

Be Happy was third at Saint-Cloud on 1 April when last running, with this French encounter seeing the three-year-old finishing behind favourite Pensee Du Jour and Sea Of Roses. Having been sent off at 6/1, it was a solid performance and the ride from Ryan Moore is likely to be repeated for this latest encounter which could see the horse go close.

Sea Of Roses was able to finish ahead of Be Happy in that Saint-Cloud encounter, with the horse having previously won the Maiden Fillies’ Stakes over one mile at Doncaster, with Bright Diamond having finished third on successive occasions after winning the race before that at Newmarket in July, with the horse having run in esteemed company.

The third-placed finish at Newmarket in her most recent race, with the horse running really well over one mile in the bet365 Fillies’ Mile, with this taking place over one mile on good ground. There was also a place in the frame in the William Hill Prestige Fillies’ Stakes and Clifford Lee gave the horse a tremendous spin on that occasion.

Eternal Hope lines up in the familiar Godolphin colours and the three-year-old will have been tilted at this race by trainer Charlie Appleby, with the horse last winning on the all-weather track at Chelmsford. Previously to this was a third-placed finish at Wolverhampton although a lack of experience could be telling here.
