Joviality got up in the shadows of the post to pip Barefoot Lady in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York this afternoon but will not be heading to Epsom after trainer John Gosden nominated the French Oaks as her likely target.
Consequently, both Blue Bunting and Wonder Of Wonders have been cut at the head of the market by totesport, with the former now the 5/2 favourite (from 11/4) and the latter a 9/2 chance (from 11/2)
“Joviality’s impending trip to Chantilly for the French Oaks means that the opposition to Blue Bunting and Wonder Of Wonders is wearing thin and it wouldn’t be the greatest surprise to see their odds contract further over the next few days,” said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Delegator has been cut to 10/1 (from 25/1) by totesport for the Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot after staying on strongly to take the Duke Of York Blue Square Stakes under Frankie Dettori. Tiddliwinks belied his odds of 40/1 to finish third and has been cut to 50/1 (from 100/1) for the same race.
