Preview and Predictions – WA Oaks 2012

The best three-year-old fillies in the nation’s west will be in action tomorrow when the Group 3 2012 WA Oaks takes place at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse.

Run over 2400 metres, nine horses will contest the $250,000 race which is one of two feature races on the nine-race Ascot card tomorrow.

Natasha Stakes winner Caiguna ($2.90) currently heads the betting market ahead of Colin Webster trained filly Pop Culture ($3.20) and the Grant Williams trained Elite Belle ($5.50).

After analysing the form, barriers and track conditions, the think tank have put together our exclusive guide of who we think are the horses to back in the sixth race in the WA capital tomorrow afternoon.

The Winner

Despite starting as second-favourite, Pop Culture has been the best performed of the field so far this year and we are tipping her to exact revenge on Caiguna following defeat in the Natasha Stakes.

She opened up her 2012 campaign with two wins in lower level races before finishing runner-up in the Listed Budget Challenge Stakes and winning the Ascot 1000 Guineas.

Pop Culture was too good for fourth-placed getter Caiguna on that day in the Guineas and as a far more consistent horse we believe she will return to her winning ways this weekend.

The Placings

It seems to be win or miss for Caiguna with two wins and two placings from nine starts and that is why the Fred Kersley trained horse is completely missing from the team’s predictions.

Instead it should be Elite Belle ($5.50) to provide the toughest challenge for Pop Culture after showing some promising form so far this year.

She won earlier this month at Pinjarra before running a close second to Pop Culture in the Ascot 1000 Guineas and then finishing a respectable fourth in the Natasha Stakes.

Shezapro ($13.00) has the calibre to round out the placings and is coming off a third-place effort in the Natasha Stakes.

The Roughie

The Social Network ($14.00) is the value pick and is a good chance if she can handle a step up in class tomorrow.

The Lindsey Smith trained horse has one win and five place-finishes from nine starts but all have come against lesser quality fields at country tracks.
