The Group One feature on Saturday takes place at the Curragh, as eight fillies enter the stalls ahead of the 2021 Irish Oaks. The Irish version of the Epsom Oaks was first staged at this famous racetrack in 1895, and Aidan O'Brien will attempt to equal Sir Michael Stoute's record tally of six winners of this Classic this weekend.

We've taken a look through the betting for this year's Irish Oaks and picked out our best bets.

Snowfall dominates the betting for the 2021 Irish Oaks. Aidan O'Brien's filly broke the record for the most emphatic victory in the Epsom Oaks last month, bolting up by 16 lengths. After that, Aidan O'Brien's filly was handed a stunning rating of 120, a mark 16 pounds clear of her closest rival in the ratings.

Aidan O'Brien accounts for four of the eight entries, as he bids to win this race for the first time since 2016. Divinely finished third behind Snowfall at Epsom, and she enters her second Classic of the season. Willow and La Jaconde will also represent Ballydoyle, and both have won since finishing out the back at Epsom.

Donnacha O'Brien throws Nicest into the mix, and she follows Snowfall in the betting. Not wanting to be out-done by his family members, Joseph O'Brien has entered Mariesque, despite watching his filly finish fifth behind Willow in the Oaks Trial at Naas. 

Ahandfulofsummers will represent Fozzy Stack, with Ger Lyons' Party House completing the field for this year's Irish Oaks.

I'm fully expecting Snowfall to land the famous Oaks double, but there's really no point backing the favourite at 2/9. Given some bookmakers are offering three paid places, the one I'm going to back at a lengthy price is PARTY HOUSE.

Ger Lyon's filly only made her debut in April, comfortably winning a maiden at Naas. Party House then pulled clear along with Sir Lucan and Wordsworth - runner-up at Group One level last time out - in the Yeats' Stakes, but looked very green in the closing stages and didn't see out that 13-furlong trip.

Colin Keane's mount sat last for much of the Naas' Oaks Trial. Party House was forced four-wide rounding the sharp bend at Leopardstown, and almost slipped over as the field straightened for home. Keane attempted to coax his mount into contention after that blunder, but the effort she exerted turning for home seemed to take its toll, and she was allowed to coast home back in sixth place.

There's clearly much more to come from this daughter of Camelot and stepping back up to a mile-and-a-half will definitely suit. In a race that looks extremely weak if you take out the market leader, Party House appeals greatly at 50/1.


Snowfall will clearly take all the beating, but I feel Party House has been overlooked at 50/1 and she can go well for last year's winning duo of Ger Lyons and Colin Keane.
