So Mi Dar Hits High Notes In Derby Trial

William Hill cut So Mi Dar to 8-1 from 14-1 for the Investec Oaks after a good win in the Derby Trial at Epsom, beating colts in the process.

The John Gosden-trained filly could be backed in the Oaks market at 25-1 in the days leading up to the race, but that shortened first to 20-1, then 16-1, then 14-1 before ‘the off’.

“So Mi Dar has hit all the right notes and she could be a real contender for the Oaks,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Only Aidan O’Brien’s Minding and Ballydoyle are ahead of So Mi Dar in the Oaks betting.
