Odds

The highest odds seen at the most recent edition of the second August Evening Racing of the year last summer were 250/1 as seen on two separate occasions, with Cherish in The EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes and Cousin Rosaura in The Novice Stakes.

The biggest upset last time out was in the opening race of the day, The Class 5 Nursery, when 12/1 priced Enduring took home the first-place prize, converting, for example, all £10 outright backing stakes into £130 in returns, £120 in profits.
