The action of the 2010 Crown Oaks Day at Flemington kicks off this morning with Race 1, the $100,000 La Vie En Rose Vase (1800m) for four and five-year-olds, due to start proceedings at 11:10am (AEDST).
The 2010 La Vie En Rose Vase final field features 13 gallopers following the scratching of #6 Cyclone Al, #7 Garozzo, #8 Work The Room, #16 Flotercher, #18 Tamanu Park and #19 Wadeema.
The red hot favourite to win the opening Crown Oaks Day race is Vesper, currently paying $2.80 through Luxbet.
The Robert Hickmott-trained gelding Vesper has enjoyed a super consistent career to date winning three of their five race starts and is coming off a solid fourth in the Sale Cup.
A son of boom staying sire Zabeel, today’s 1800m distance is perfectly suited to Vesper and this horse is the Races.com.au favourite.
