Droopy Mandolin may be facing a very tough second round draw in the Sporting Press Online Edition Irish Oaks but is now as short as 3-1 with Boylesports to win the bitch classic after her stunning opening round effort.

In what was her first start of the year, the Robert Gleeson trained starlet posted a sizzling 28.12 and it’s no shock to see her price contract. Short Grip may have suffered an opening round defeat but remains the second choice in the market at 6-1.

Rathdown Molly continued her return to top form last weekend and is just 10-1 for outright success, while Epic Chick is next in at 12-1 despite taking part in the voided opening heat of the stake. She is joined by Select Stakes winner Droopys Fidget on 12-1. Annie On Faya is next in at 14-1. There I a talented group on 16-1. These include Lincoln Legacy, Lets Go Bubbles A Lucky Julie, Threesixfive, Tell On Bella and Droopys Edel. The full market can be seen below.
