Can Dear Demi Score The Roses – Queensland Oaks 2013 Double?

Just one filly has achieved The Roses – Queensland Oaks double in the past decade but on Saturday Clarry Conners’ talented Dear Demi is favourite to become the next.

The Dehere three-year-old scored the Group 3 The Roses (2000m) win at Doomben two starts back overcoming the extreme outside barrier 16 of 16, that race producing seven of the past 10 Queensland Oaks winners.

However just one filly in that time completed the double with Scarlett Lady in 2011.

This weekend at Eagle Farm Dear Demi runs in the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) and is the current $3.40 favouite for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival classic through

In between The Roses and the Oaks Dear Demi also contested last Saturday’s Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) finishing sixth behind Hawkspur.

Will three straight Saturdays be too much for her? Or can she return to the winners stall and add another Group 1 Oaks win to the one she won at Flemington in the spring?

Why Dear Demi Can Win the Queensland Oaks 2013

  • Drawn ideally in barrier three where she should get a sweet run
  • Won the Doomben Roses two back which has produced seven of the past 10 QLD Oaks winners
  • Beat many of the same fillies in that run as she faces on Saturday too including Gondokoro (2nd), Vaquera (3rd) and Magic In Motion (4th)
  • Highest earner in this field as the sole Group 1 winner
  • Proven over the distance having won the Crown Oaks over 2500m in Melbourne last Cup Carnival
  • Chance of a rain-affected track and Dear Demi has good form on Heavy ground (2-1-1-0)

Why Dear Demi Won’t be the 2013 Queensland Oaks Winner

  • On paper barrier three looks good but it has produced just one QLD Oaks winner in the past 30 years
  • If the rain continues in Brisbane and the Oaks is run in the wet then an inside alley may not be the best place to start
  • Her recent jockey Luke Nolen jumps off to ride for trainer Peter Moody meaning Nash Rawiller will be aboard for the first time
  • Could be better for a place as she has just a 27.27% win rate but a place percentage of 63.64%
  • Defeated Saturday’s $3.60 second fancy #4 Gondokoro by just a short half head in the Roses and with the extra 400m money is coming for the runner-up to turn the tables when they race against Dear Demi for the fourth time
  • Had a testing run against the boys last Saturday, can she bounce back?
  • Races for the third Saturday on the trot giving freshness edge away to some of the other runners here
