Oakleigh Plate 2011 Betting – Caulfield Race 5 Tips

A hat-trick of Group 1 features highlight the Caulfield racecard for Blue Diamond Stakes Day this Saturday including the $400,000 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) and here the Races.com.au have published the winning 2011 Oakleigh Plate betting tips.

This year’s capacity Oakleigh Plate field of 18 sprinters will take to the track at 3:50pm (AEDST) when the event runs as Caulfield Race 6 on Saturday, February 26.

Current favourite in the Oakleigh Plate betting markets at Luxbet is #1 Catapulted paying $5 to win.

Having drifted out slightly from their opening quote of $4.60, the Mark Kavanagh-trained Catapulted resumed for the season on February 12 beating home a classy field in the Group 3 Rubiton Stakes at this track and distance.

Catapulted has drawn barrier eight for Saturday and is the 58kg top-weight of the field, but has a competitive record over this distance at Group level.

However it is the favourite’s stablemate, fellow Mark Kavanagh-trained Undeniably, that the Races.com.au team have rated special to win the Oakleigh Plate on Saturday.

Blue Diamond Stakes Day Race 5 Tips – 2011 Oakleigh Plate Betting

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #11 Undeniably – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #12 Solar Charged and #6 Star Witness

Drawn ideally in barrier three and star hoop Corey Brown booked for the Oakleigh Plate ride, improving Fastnet Rock four-year-old Undeniably is an excellent chance to win and beat home their more favoured stablemate.

The punters are starting to come around to this idea too as Undeniably has been backed in from their opening price of $7 into the $5.50 second favourite at Luxbet.

Well-weighted with just 53.5kg for the Oakleigh, Undeniably most recently finished a fraction away from Whitefriars when running second in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 28 carrying a hefty 58.5kg.

They may have had just nine career starts to date and are until Saturday untested at Group 1 level, but Undeniably has the breeding and class to win this.

Adding more value to your Oakleigh Plate wagers and to finish second behind Undeniably we are tipping smart young filly Solar Charged.

The John O’Shea-trained Solar Charged is second-up for the season having run a spirited third behind Catapulted in the Rubiton Stakes last start.

A multiple Group placegetter, Solar Charged has come up trumps with barrier one for Saturday, is a 53kg light-weight and at $13 to win and $4 to place through Luxbet represents great value.

To finish off the 2011 Oakleigh Plate Trifecta we have our money on dual Group 1 winner, the Danny O’Brien-trained Star Witness.

Last year’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner has drawn wide with barrier 10, which rules them out for the win to us, but there is still a lot to like about Starcraft colt Star Witness who is the current $7 third favourite in the Oakleigh Plate betting.
