Racing kicks off at Flemington this afternoon with the older gallopers contesting the $100,000 La Vie En Rose Vase (1800m) at 12:20pm (AEDT).

From there the racing and betting action just gets better and better with the opening black-type on the Crown Oaks Day card being Race 3 at 1:40pm (AEDT) – the $150,000 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) where class mares including Ortensia, Valentine Miss and Miss Octopussy face off.

Small time punters that just like a spring carnival flutter will want to hang around for Flemington Race 5 today, the greys-only showdown which is always a major attraction on Crown Oaks Day.

Of course the big one today is Race 6 – the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) due to jump at 3:40pm (AEDT).

With boom filly Atlantic Jewel sidelined with injury, Graeme Rogerson’s Kiwi raider Dowager Queen is the Crown Oaks betting favourite at Luxbet paying $3.70 to break her Group 1 maiden today.

Other smart fillies engaged include Robert Smerdon’s Thousand Guineas runner-up Mosheen ($4.40) having her first test at a distance greater than 1600m, the Bart Cummings-trained Gliding ($7) out to give the master his 10th Crown Oaks success and surprise Wakeful runner-up Rahveel ($6).
