2011 Crown Oaks Day Tips

Melbourne Cup Day may be done and dusted for another year with French raider Dunaden the 2011 Melbourne Cup winner in the closest finish our greatest race have ever seen, but there is still plenty of elite racing and betting action to enjoy this Melbourne Cup Carnival including 2011 Crown Oaks Day on Thursday at Flemington Racecourse.

2011 Crown Oaks Day Tips

Race 1 – 12:20pm La Vie En Rose Vase (1800m)

#4 Elusive King ($7) from #7 Fawkner ($4.80) and #5 Bellissimo ($12) – Bet now at Luxbet

Peter Moody’s consistent Elusive Quality four-year-old Elusive King back at Flemington where the track and distance will suit, third in the Rokk Ebony Cup back in March and a narrow second in the Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) in February, should be able to recapture that form.

Race 2 – 1:00pm Crown Promenade Trophy (1700m)

#6 Princess Rock ($7.50) from #1 Cliques ($3.50) and #2 Magic Milady ($12) – Bet now at Luxbet

The Darren Weir-trained Princess Rock faces a classy field here and this is a big step-up for the lightly-raced Rock Of Gibraltar filly who has only had two starts at her home track at Ballarat, but she comes off a win, deserves a shot, should relish getting to this distance and is weighted for success.

Race 3 – 1:40pm G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m)

#8 Valentine Miss ($2.80) from #14 Lady Mahler ($14) and #2 Ortensia ($6) – Bet now at Luxbet

Plenty of talent and plenty to select, but we are sticking with the deserved favourite Valentine Miss for the win, with all the top fancies drawn wide she looks ok in gate eight, Mark Kavanagh’s Danetime mare has built a nice record over the past seasons and has been thereabouts this spring, looks her time to shine and win her first race since September last year.

Race 4 – 2:20pm Gucci Stakes (1200m)

#1 Satin Shoes ($7.50) from #2 Miss Stellabelle ($4.80) and #7 Emmalene ($14) – Bet now at Luxbet

Satin Shoes isn’t the favourite here but in our eyes she should be, there are some fresh and lightly-raced hopes in excellent form here so an upset could very well eventuate – see Karuta Queen’s defeat on Melbourne Cup Day – but class gets you a long way and she will relish the step back in that having just run third to Sepoy in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Race 5 – 3:00pm TLC 3D TV Plate (1400m)

#11 Emboldened ($16) from #9 Dash For Viz ($6) and #13 King Cobweb ($8) – Bet now at Luxbet

Nice value pick here, Emboldened to get a gun run from barrier five, they face some really well-tried horses but this four-year-old grey caught our eye with their fours striaght victories at Fannie Bay last season, they deserve a Cup Day appearance and look a great upset chance.

Race 6 – 3:40pm Crown Oaks (2500m)

#1 Mosheen ($4.60) from #2 Dowager Queen ($3.70) and #5 Roma Giaconda ($16) – Bet now at Luxbet

Wide open race, Mosheen gets the draw, has the class and set weights suit. If she gets the distance, she wins.

Race 7 – 4:25pm Myer Spring Fashion Stakes (1800m)

#1 Torah ($4.60) from #3 Proliferate ($45.50) and #4 World Domination ($8.50) – Bet now at Luxbet

This one is even more open than the Oaks, seven from 11 at single figures and all livewire chances. Can’t go past Torah despite their 57kg topweight, Moody-trained filly beat a top field that included Crown Oaks hopes in a Cox Plate Day black-type over the mile, they rise in weight but get the right gate (2) and distance will be no worries.

Race 8 – 5:10pm Swisse Vitamins Stakes (1000m)

#15 Falvelina ($31) from #4 Perturbo ($6) and Master Harry ($3.70) – Bet now at Luxbet

Roughie bet of the day here, Falvelina is hit or miss and this time we are backing them to hit. A huge field of sprinters, they get barrier two and if they don’t get stuck on the rails they can give the Queenslanders a win. Each Way is probably best.

Race 9 – 5:50pm The Grazia Ultimate Style Guide (1600m)

#12 Bianmick ($26) from #4 Cosmic Causeway ($4.40) and #11 Snow Cover ($8) – Bet now at Luxbet

Another long-shot to see out the day, they are drawn wide but over the mile that should be okay for this handy galloper coming off back-to-back wins. Just have a feeling about this wone having watched them run and win at Cranbourne last-start over the mile really well to flash home with 57kg (they are 53kg here) after being disappointed for a run.
