Crown Oaks 2011 Betting & Odds – Dowager Queen Favourite

Graeme Rogerson’s consistent New Zealand-trained filly Dowager Queen is installed as the narrow favourite in a now wide-open 2011 Crown Oaks betting market for Thursday’s third Melbourne Cup Carnival meeting.

After the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m), running as Flemington Race 6 at 3:40pm (local time) on Thursday, lost its drawcard contender with Atlantic Jewel withdrawn due to a hamstring injury, the Luxbet punters now have no dominant odds-on favourite ruling the markets.


Mosheen is the early 2011 Crown Oaks betting market mover

Of the 11 three-year-old fillies in the 2011 Crown Oaks field, Dowager Queen originally opened as the $3.70 to elect in the Luxbet markets but she is now out to $3.90.

A winner of four of her 16 career starts to date the daughter of Savabeel has been in good form this season that has included a Group 1 third to Streama in the Flight Stakes in Sydney and a second in the Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m) on Caulfield Cup Day.

Dowager Queen was last seen finishing seven and a half lengths away third behind Atlantic Jewel in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and is expected to improve with the step-up to the 2500 metres on Thursday.

The Crown Oaks 2011 betting market mover and now second favourite is then Mosheen who has been backed in from $6 to $4.80 at Luxbet.

Coming up trumps with barrier two for Thursday, the smart Robert Smerdon-trained daughter of Fastnet Rock has been one of the eye-catching fillies of the spring.

She has had a long preparation having been up since mid-August, but has been performing her heart out in all six of her runs so far.

Highlights from Mosheen’s three-year-season include her commanding three length victory in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) at Flemington and her brave second to Atlantic Jewel in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Mosheen comes into Thursday’s Crown Oaks off the back of a sixth place finish to Hurtle Myrtle in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day where she was caught out against the older mares from an awkward double-digit gate.

She has never been tested at a distance greater than a mile making the Crown Oaks a true stamina test for Mosheen, but the punters are behind her.

There are two other fillies at single-figure prices in the Crown Oaks odds at Luxbet with Leon Corstens’ surprise Wakeful Stakes runner-up Rahveel ($5.50) out in the far outside barrier and the Bart Cummings-trained Ethereal Stakes winner Gliding ($6.50) who also drew wide in gate 10.

Meanwhile other longer-priced Crown Oaks hopefuls that could prove the value punt of the day at Luxbet include Vittoria ($11) drawn nicely in barrier four, Roma Giaconda ($16) who ran a surprise second to Manawanui in the Stan Fox Stakes three starts back, and Elusive Quality filly Pentimento ($16).

Rounding out the 2011 Crown Oaks field and odds are then Ethereal Stakes third placegetter Gioe ($18), the Grahame Begg-trained Fallen One ($26) with the inside run from gate one, Lady Jouster ($26) coming off a last-start win at Bendigo and David Hayes’ lightly-raced Redoute’s Choice filly Flame Of Lanka ($35).
