Trading early… Epsom

Spread the love...

Friday next week sees the Investec Oaks run at Epsom and I’ve been having a scan of the ante-post markets this week. While the markets on offer haven’t all started to form fully just yet it appears there was a pretty big correction in odds just earlier in the week.

I suspected and still do that some of the odds will fluctuate due to the uncertainty of the going with all the recent rain although after Marvellous ran a cracker last week in the 1,000 Guineas the price has gone into free-fall with considerable sum’s matched around the 10.0 mark early on while now trading at only 4.8!

It seems the opportunity for a big move has passed although there could still be a little room left particularly with Tagrooda drifting to 4.4 with as much as £19k matched at 3.40! Paddy Power even have Marvellous now priced us as favourite. Frustrating as it is I caught this far too late. It’ll just have to serve as a reminder to keep an eye on the various entries runners have when attempting to trade ante-post in the future.

I’m sure there will plenty more excitement in this market before it gets to Friday, especially if the typical UK weather continues to be so unpredictable!

Spread the love...
