Schweppes Australasian Oaks 2012 Tips & Selections

One of the two Group 1 clashes scheduled for Morphettville’s ‘Black Caviar Day’ on Saturday is the 2012 Schweppes Australasian Oaks and to help you back the winning filly below the crew has made their insider tips on the race public knowledge.

Empress Rock

Empress Rock is the tip to win the 2012 Australasian Oaks on Saturday

Due to jump at 2:35pm (SA time) as Morphettville Race 5 the $400,000 Group 1 Schweppes Australasian Oaks (2000m) field boasts plenty of depth and the form guide makes for interesting reading.

There are five in the field under double figures in the latest Schweppes Oaks betting odds at our preferred online bookie, but really there is only one they punters want and that’s Empress Rock.

Bart Cummings’ multiple Group 2 winner has been steadily backed since markets opened and she has continued to wind in from $4.40 right into $3.80.

While defeated by fellow Oaks rival Crucial ($8) in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Stakes (1800m) last time out, Empress Rock gets the weight advantage for round two and should relish that and the step up to 2000-metres.

Other main dangers in the field look to be the Michael Kent-trained Our Miss Jones ($7), Zabeel filly Rahveel ($8) coming off a Schweppervescence second and Robert Smerdon’s progressive Red Typhoon ($9.50).

This is a big line-up however and while the rest of them are at long odds there is always a roughie or two worth a look at.

Earlier the team published out 2012 Schweppes Australasian Oaks Form Guide & Betting Preview, and based on the facts and stats we uncovered there below we have our exclusive tips.
