2022 Yorkshire Oaks Betting Odds at York racecourse

Thursday, 18 August 2022

Emily Upjohn looks like the horse to beat and the John Gosden-trained runner has been installed as the odds-on favourite to win the Yorkshire Oaks, with the three-year-old likely to be a strong contender at the Knavesmire when this race takes place on 18 August.

We are interested to see whether any other mare in the race can win, with Tuesday running for Aidan O’Brien and this is another three-year-old with big race experience, while Alpinista and Free Wind also among the betting favourites for this intriguing encounter.

2022 Yorkshire Oaks Tips

Emily Upjohn is the odds-on favourite and the big question is whether you are going to back this horse as one of your Ebor meeting bankers or whether you are prepared to oppose a John Gosden-trained runner who did fall short of the winning post last time out.

The horse lined up in the Cazoo Oaks and was sent off as the 6/4 favourite although she wasn’t able to get over the line ahead of Tuesday, with the former having made a stumble at the beginning of the race which ended up proving costly considering that there was only a short head between the two fillies.

Frankie Dettori is likely to be on board and there was everything to like about her win in the Musidora Stakes on 11 May at the Knavesmire and this experience of running at the racecourse could see many regard Emily Upjohn as the banker for this meeting.

Tuesday is the Oaks champion and is now bidding to record another famous win at York Racecourse in the Ebor Festival, although she was underwhelming at The Curragh more recently. Over one mile and four furlongs, the 11/8 joint-favourite was only able to finish fourth in the race and well behind the other joint-favourite Westover.

Snowfall Hot Favourite to Win 2021 Yorkshire Oaks

During the two-year-old season, Snowfall gave little indication that she would end up being a big-time winner further down the line, although the horse scored a Group 3 success in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York Racecourse, with the Japanese-bred runner then smashing things up in the Oaks.

The sixteen-length victory was truly remarkable considering the horse was sent off at betting odds of 11/2, with favourite Santa Barbara nowhere to be seen and Aidan O’Brien’s horse’s stock rose rapidly overnight, with more to come from this excellent runner.

The bookies were certainly wise to Snowfall when the Irish Oaks took place, with the runner being sent off as the 2/7 favourite and this comfortable win means that she’s certainly the one to beat.

Can Anyone Beat Snowfall in the Yorkshire Oaks?

Love is regarded as the third favourite to repeat her Yorkshire Oaks victory of 2020, although it’s entirely possible that the filly will be rerouted to the Juddmonte International considering that Aidan O’Brien won’t want two talented fillies to necessarily compete against each other.

On the basis that Love doesn’t run, then perhaps the biggest threat will come from Tarnawa and there’s a big question mark over the Dermot Weld-trained charge considering that she hasn’t run for nearly a year, with the five-year-old having enjoyed an exciting 2020.

Should Weld managed to get the horse back to her imperious best, she has to stand a chance of running well in this clash considering that there was everything to like about the Breeders’ Cup Turf win over one mile and four furlongs.

Wonderful Tonight could be an exciting each-way bet and David Menuisier is capable of a training performance which saw the filly secure the Hardwicke Stakes over one mile and four furlongs, with the horse having previously triumphed in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes.
