Skywalker Angie Favourite For Christmas Oaks At Shelbourne Park
The Mark O’Donovan trained Skywalker Angie is the firm favourite to be crowned the 2021 Shelbourne Christmas Oaks winner following her terrific semi-final performance.
This speedy daughter of Laughil Blake – Droopys Saga won her heat in a blistering 28.17 after a lightening start from trap one.
This April 2019 whelped bitch wears the red jacket in the final, with her chances cut into 5/4 from 6/1 making her the favourite.
Crafty Kokoro is the 9/4 second favourite for Peter Divilly with those odds trimmed from 8/1. This daughter of Droopys Sydney has won the last two rounds of this competition clocking 28.28 and 28.37 and having to work hard to claim victory on both occasions showing strong pace on the home run.
Clona Skye is 9/2 from 8/1 for trainer Graham Holland and this lady has a huge chance if she can show her early pace that she is capable of. She just gets the trip of 525 yards with her kennelmate Clogheen Lass not without a chance at 5/1 wearing the stripes.
Gerry Merriman has two finalists with Highview Moment at 12/1 and Highview Magnet at 14/1 in the betting and they will both need to produce career bests to win.
