With betting exchanges proving to be very popular with punters these days, it is often the case that the ante post betting markets offered by most bookies are overlooked.
However, it won’t be very long now until the 2019 running of the Investec Oaks will be upon us, and there has certainly been an increase regarding the number of punters making use of those betting markets.
With each-way terms of around one fifth the win odds and with many bookies paying out to at least three places, there are loads of potentially profitable betting opportunities if you are prepared to study the list of runners in that race.
But one horse that has been pencilled in as the most likely winner for quite some time on the Betfred and Coral betting sites via their respective ante post betting markets is Pink Dogwood, and odds of around 7/2 are still available if you do fancy its chances.
As for the other horses that can be backed to win or get placed in this race, their respective odds right now are huge, so this is certainly a race that I would advise you to take an interest in and do so sooner rather than later.
Iridessa Looks Booked for a Place
There are a couple of horses that are currently chalked up at around odds of 14/1 those being Iridessa and sea of Faith, and those odds are decent for those two second favourites, and either of them could be worth having an each-way punt on them.
However, I do like the look of Iridessa and as such that is my each-way tip for this race, for if everything does fall into place there is no doubt in my mind that horse will be involved in the finish and should fill one of the top three spots for sure.
Much Bigger Odds on all Other Runners
For those of you that are prepared to take a chance that one of the other horses not yet named will win or get placed you are going to be offered some much higher valued odds, but do shop around as the odds on the remainder of the field are going to vary depending on just which bookie you bet with.
Sparkle Roll is the next horse currently in the betting and is available at odds of around the 16/1 mark. There are plenty of 20/1 shots currently, however if I had to pick just one of them that I felt has a chance of finishing in one of the top three positions then it is Just Wonderful that I would pick.
Just keep in mind that the best betting value on any other runner sin this race is going to be found on a betting exchange such as Betfair, much more so if you do make a point of backing your chosen horses early, so do keep your eyes on that betting exchange and spend some time studying the form of those other runners too.
