Kissed is the new 3/1 favourite from 4/1 with Coral for the Investec Oaks after previous ante post favourite, Maybe, was eased to 6/1 from 7/2 after being beaten into third in today’s 1000 Guineas.
Homecoming Queen’s shock victory in the 1000 Guineas and the defeat of Maybe saved the bookies a substantial six figure payout following Camelot’s success in yesterday’s 2000 Guineas.
“We had substantial running up money from ante post doubles on Camelot and Maybe to contend with, and then today thousands of punters played up their winnings from yesterday, leaving us facing a substantial six figure payout had Maybe won. Homecoming Queen came to the rescue of bookies but she was well backed this morning from 33-1 down to 20-1 so was not a stellar result by any means”, Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman told betrescue.com
