2023 Yorkshire Oaks Betting Odds at York racecourse

Thursday, 24 August 2023

Soul Sister has already landed the Epsom Oaks this year and she is now bidding for another big win, with John & Thady Gosden saddling a runner who has lively claims for a victory. The same stable also have Emily Upjohn and it’s therefore likely that we’ll see the trainers land a win considering that these are the first two horses in the betting.

Savethelastdance can’t be ignored after scooping three wins in the past four encounters, with the three-year-old having the credentials to go close at the Knavesmire, while Al Husn is also a promising runner and we’re excited to see how the race unfolds, with the bookies offering competitive racing odds when it comes to this high-profile encounter.

2023 Yorkshire Oaks Tips

Soul Sister heads the betting market and the horse recorded back to back victories before a recent third-placed finish at Longchamp. Sent off as the 8/5 favourite in the Grand Prix de Paris, the horse was fended off in France when beaten into third by Feed The Flame and Adelaide River, although that came after a convincing victory in the Epsom Oaks.

Sent off at 11/4 on that occasion, Soul Sister was able to fend off the challenge of Savethelastdance to claim a win by nearly two lengths, with the pair now set to renew their rivalry in the Yorkshire Oaks. The latter has to be respected and that defeat has been the only reverse in four particular outings.

Aidan O’Brien saddled this horse to a victory in the Juddmonte Oaks, with the filly registering a narrow win over one mile and four furlongs. Ryan Moore was able to get a big tune out of the runner when it looked as though a win was slipping away, although the horse does look a big price from an each-way point of view.

Al Husn has scored a consecutive hat-trick of wins and the latest of these was in the Qatar Nassau Stakes, with the runner finishing half a length ahead of Above The Curve over one mile and two furlongs on soft ground. That came after a half length win over favourite Nashwa, with Bluestocking another one for the shortlist.

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.
