Lah Ti Dar massively shortened for The Oaks after dominant Pretty Polly win

The classy Mare remains unbeaten and must be classed a serious contender for the classic.

Frankie Dettori has enjoyed some quality rides over his long career and he could well have ridden another classic winner in Lah Ti Dar, who surely must now be classed as a contender for the Oaks following an impressive Pretty Polly victory at Newmarket.

Sauntering past her rivals, she won very comfortably and remains unbeaten, with a possibility of becoming the first winner of both the Pretty Polly Stakes and the Oaks since Taghrooda, who accomplished the feat in 2014.

Since the win yesterday, a flurry of bets have come in for the three-year-old, seeing her odds plummet to favouritism. 

Before the race yesterday a price of 11/1 was readily available, but that has been cut to a best price of 9/2 with some bookies going as short as 7/2.

A whopping 74% of all bets on the Oaks since that race have been on Lah Ti Dar, including multiple three-figure stakes. 

A lot of punters are thinking that the race could be a shootout between Lah Ti Dar or Happily, who finished third in the 1000 Guineas the same day. She is second favourite at 6/1, with September rounding off the betting at 9/1.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “It was an impressive performance by Lah Ti Dar, who has launched herself straight to the top of the Oaks betting after a dominant Pretty Polly winner. It’s no surprise to see her being backed so well, and it could well be a classic on the cards if her progression continues.”
