2022 Yorkshire Oaks Betting Odds at York racecourse

Thursday, 18 August 2022

The 2021 Darley Yorkshire Oaks is scheduled to take place at York Racecourse, with this horse racing being hosted on 19 August and this is a race that takes place between the leading fillies that have competed during the flat season to date.

Enable has been the recent two-time winner of the Yorkshire Oaks, triumphing in 2017 and 2019, while Love was the winner of the race twelve months ago and it will be interesting to see whether she runs in this race or instead defects to the Juddmonte International.

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.
