The Anthony Freedman trained Zydeco is $2.90 into $2.30 with Sportingbet Australia to win Thursday’s Oaks at Flemington.
“Zydeco couldn’t have been more impressive in the Wakeful and deserves to be favourite,” Sportingbet CEO Michael Sullivan said.
“We’ve taken a stack of big pre-post bets for Zydeco to win the Oaks over the past few weeks and she’s a terrible result for us,” Sullivan said.
“Dear Demi was luckless though and can turn the tables on Thursday.”
Dear Demi is steady at $4.20, while Summerbliss has eased from $4.60 to $6.
Maraatib has firmed from $71 into $17 after running a sound second to Zydeco in the Wakeful.
