Well-backed Rhododendron odds-on to continue Ballydoyle Classic run

| 01.06.2017


Rhododendron is 5-6 favourite with Coral to continue trainer Aidan O’Brien’s 100% record in British and Irish Classics this season with victory in tomorrow’s Investec Oaks.  Enable is the 5-1 second favourite, ahead of her stablemate Coronet at 9-1.

“Rhododenron was made 4-1 favourite immediately after her QIPCO 1,000 Guineas second, and she’s been by far the best-backed Oaks contender ever since, with that support forcing her into odds-on earlier this week,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“Victory in the fillies’ Classic, which is always one of the biggest turnover races of the Flat season, would be costly for bookmakers, and almost certainly help propel her stablemate Cliffs Of Moher towards outright favouritism in Saturday’s Investec Derby,” added Stevens.
