Can Shamal Wind Blow 2013 Oakleigh Plate Rivals Away?

Second favourite at $6, Shamal Wind is the only three-year-old in the race and only debuted during the spring.

The daughter of Dubawi is unbeaten from three starts and heads into the Oakleigh Plate as the only horse with the minimum weight allocation of 50.5kg.

Can the emerging talent shine in the top grade against the older horses? Or has the test come too soon? We provide you with the stats that matter as well as the reasons for and against backing Shamal Wind in the Oakleigh Plate.
