Crown Oaks 2012 Betting Update

The 2012 Melbourne Cup Carnival action continues today with the Group 1 2012 Crown Oaks (2500m) which sees the best three-year-old staying fillies in the country line up to compete for a share in $1 million.


Zydeco has been heavily backed in the Oaks market.

A big field of 15 fillies will be in the gates in the race otherwise known as the 2012 VRC Oaks but so far there is only one horse the punters have wanted.

Zydeco ($2.10) is a standout favourite and has shortened from $2.20 yesterday.

The Anthony Freedman-trained youngster will be out to continue the strong tradition of Wakeful Stakes winners going on to score victory in the Oaks after a convincing win in the lead-up event on Saturday.

Freedman is confident the progressive stayer can produce a good performance but cautious of her main rival Dear Demi ($5).

“She has put herself there to be the deserved favourite and hopefully she can deliver,” he said.

“[Dear Demi] She didn’t have any luck last start and meets us better at the weights.”

Dear Demi suffered a luckless run in the Wakeful when fourth and the Oaks has always been the major target.

Next in the market is the lightly-raced Summerbliss ($7) who will be having just her third start of the spring.

The Michael Kent-trained youngster has had just two career starts, winning on debut at Ballarat before running a strong second in the Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m) late last month.

Behind the top three there is a long gap in the betting market with Wakeful Stakes runner-up Maraatib ($17) the next best along with Lazuma ($17).

Others in the market include Ethereal Stakes winner Alzora ($21), Wakeful Stakes third Transonic ($31) and New Zealand filly Kate ($41).
