A couple of defeats haven’t put the layers off Droopys Mandolin with the Robert Gleeson trained star remaining as favourite to land the Sporting Press Online Edition Irish Oaks. Boylesports have Droopys Mandolin as their 5-2 favourite, ahead of Short Grip on 4-1.

Droopys Edel has been in tremendous form and is just 5-1 to win the classic, while A Lucky Julie is next in at 6-1. Epic Chick is the only other runner in single figures at 8-1. Deelish Nora and Droopys Fidget come next in the market at 10-1.

Beretta Reba is just 12-1 after a couple of massive runs in recent weeks, while Kerogue Lady and Born To Perform come next at 20-1. Beretta Melba and Fleadh Saraide are the two outsiders of the field at 33-1 and 40-1.
