William Hill Oaks Odds: Silverview Perky a marginal favourite at Wimbledon
Thursday night's William Hill Oaks looks set to be an enthralling encounter at Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium as there is little to choose between the two at the head of the odds. Silverview Perky is the most marginal of favourites for the 480m contest at best priced odds of 11/8 with William Hill, with his semi-final conqueror Spinkys Nod a touch back at 7/4.
There is plenty at stake this week as there is £8,500 of prize money up for grabs, with the winner receiving £6,000. Charlie Lister's Silverview Perky was hugely impressive in the early rounds as she produced a stunning performance in the quarter-finals to win in a rapid 28.21 seconds.
It was a fifth win in a row, with a combined winning distance of 36 lengths, as she exhibited a relentless galloping speed. Lister's bitch suffered an upset in the semi-finals though as she lost out by a length and a quarter to Spinkys Nod, despite starting as the 4/7 favourite.
Spinkys Nod, who reached the third round of the Derby in the summer, won in 28.78 seconds as John Gammon's talented bitch got away from the traps really well in an exceptional performance. It was a fourth win in five starts as her odds continue to tumble as she was clipped in from 16/1 after the Oaks heats. Spinkys Nod won at Wimbledon at the seventh time of asking in the heats, where she beat 2010 Oaks third Rebellious Queen, and she looks capable of contributing to a thrilling finale this week.
Charlie Lister is dual-handed this week though and his Boher Princess is available at odds of 6/1 with Hills. She led from the red jacket in her semi-final and looked like she would go on and take victory but she was beaten by the impressive Droopys Loner.
Dean Childs' Droopys Loner is available at an impressive 8/1 with WilliamHill.com after winning the second semi-final in 28.88 seconds. It was something of a shock result and the explosive turn of pace shown on the back straight would suggest that Childs has a very exciting prospect on his hands.
Seamus Cahill's Thurlesbeg Bound was third in that semi-final and is priced 7/1, while Cahill's second string in the race, Droopys Aretha, will have to upset the odds once again. The 25/1 chance is a big outsider for the race but will look to defy the odds again after finishing third to Silverview Perky and Spinkys Nod from ante-post odds of 25/1 in the semi-final.
