Australian Oaks Form Guide & Tips
1. Montefilia ($4.80) Bet @ Sportsbet
Montefilia did well against the boys last week but she might have come to the end of her campaign.
The three-year-old filly by Kermadec hasn’t shown her best form this season and with only two wins from five starts at Randwick, we are leaving her out of our top three. However, she should go into first-four and trifecta selections.
2. Amarelinha (Best Each Way – $4.80) Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s never easy for the Kiwis to win first-up in Australia but the daughter of Savabeel has a touch of class.
She owns five wins and two placings from seven starts, including three in a row. She was only narrowly beaten by Aegon four back, and although Aegon hasn’t done well in Australia, it’s still good form.
Opie Bosson rides and punters get value odds at the $4.80. She should be right around the mark and tough to beat over this distance.
3. Hungry Heart ($4.80) Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to score three consecutive wins is Hungry Heart, which owns a dangerous turn-of-foot on her day.
The daughter of Frankel is bred to handle the Oaks distance and although she has only one win at Randwick, she should be adding more soon.
We’re not surprised at the odds available and she could continue to firm throughout the week.
4. Harmony Rose (Best Bet – $3.40) Bet @ Sportsbet
It was a brave effort from Harmony Rose last start and she was the only on-pace runner that finished close.
The daughter of Glass Harmonium battled strongly and she makes her own luck sitting on the pace, which is always a good tactic in the Australian Oaks.
She is supremely consistent and although backing up after a tough run isn’t easy, her class should take her a long way.
5. Impecunious ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
She hit the line nicely for third in the Vinery but the pace of the race was in her favour. It’s not to say it wasn’t a good run, but we don’t think it will be similar conditions on Saturday.
Her breeding suggests she’ll have no problems seeing out the Oaks trip, which is in her favour. The Kiwis breed them to see out 2400, so we wouldn’t be ruling her out.
Include in first-four calculations.
6. Duais (Best Roughie – $14) Bet @ Sportsbet
Duais doesn’t have the same form lines as her opposition, but she scored an empathic victory last week and she is on the rise.
The Edward Cummings-trained three-year-old could go under the radar on Saturday and it would be a mistake to rule her out.
$14 is a great price with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.
7. Bargain ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet
Conditions suit this daughter of Ocean Park and having James McDonald riding is another positive.
She finished off strongly for second last time out, suggesting the 2400m is right up her alley. It could be and she won’t have to do any work off the inside barrier.
Her opening odds of $17 was taken immediately, so keep her in mind.
8. Land Ahoy ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
Scored back-to-back wins before running sixth last start. Didn’t have much luck in running but she was never a winning chance.
We would be surprised if Land Ahoy figured in the finish, but it could pay to watch late betting moves.
9. Signora Nera ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Waller-trained runner hasn’t been too far away this season and she didn’t get all favours last week.
She had the same gap as the winner but just missed out on it. If she gets everything fall into place this time around, she could go close.
There is no market confidence, which is concerning.
10. Sassysav ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet
Sassysav comes off a win at Wyong but we don’t think provincial form will measure up at Group 1 level.
Craig Williams rides from barrier two, but she shouldn’t be in contention.
