Legatissimo Favourite But Crystal Clearly Strongest

Legatissimo is a top-priced 4-1 favourite with William Hill for the Investec Oaks after the betting was updated following the entry stage.

However, it is 11-2 second-favourite Crystal Zvezda who is the most popular horse across all William Hill channels. The Sir Michael Stoute-trained filly won at Newbury over the weekend and is being solidly backed. In comparison, there is only a trickle of money for the Coolmore contingent as people wait to find out their running plans.

“Fans of Crystal Zvezda have been keen to back her, but there are plenty more punters waiting to find out which of the Coolmore horses will be heading to the Oaks before investing their cash,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
