Sydney Rose Favourite For Rose Of Tralee Crown
Rose Of Tralee
The Rose of Tralee Festival kicks off in Kerry next week although it might be over before it has even begun!
Sydney Rose Aisling Walsh looks a cert as the 3/1 favourite to take the coveted crown.
After moving to Sydney four years ago, the stunning oncology nurse is well backed after opening at 14/1.
She is our main mover and much of the money has come from Kerry where she originally hails from.
International Roses have a history of scooping the title with the last two winners being entrants from abroad.
Back on our own shores, Dublin Rose Maria Coughlan is joint second favourite at 15/2 to take the title. The 25 year-old primary school teacher from Malahide, drifted out from an early price of 12/1. Coughlan is tied at 15/2 in the betting with San Francisco Rose Amanda Donohue – who at 20 years old is one of the youngest contestants this year.
The competition kicks off in Tralee next Wednesday with the winner being crowned on the 22nd August.
