Equal Favourites in 2013 Queensland Oaks – Betting Update

With the early favourite Dear Demi easing in her price to become a dual Oaks winning and the punters coming for her biggest danger Gondokoro the two smart fillies are now equal top fancies in the Queensland Oaks 2013 odds for this weekend.

Clarry Conners’ Crown Oaks champ and The Roses winner Dear Demi opened at a quote of $3.40 earlier in the week to bounce back from her sixth to Hawkspur in the Grand Prix Stakes last Saturday and win the $400,000 Group 1 XXXX Gold Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

She got the perfect draw with barrier three, a new jockey in Nash Rawiller and boasts plenty of class.

However racing on three consecutive Saturdays during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival puts her in doubt a little and the recent heavy rain resulting in a likely wet track for the Oaks has thrown the race open a bit.

While Dear Demi has drifted out to $3.60 in the Queensland Oaks betting odds the price on the Pat Carey-trained Zabeel filly Gondokoro has come in from $4 to $3.60.

She has come up against Dear Demi four times before beating the Group 1 winner just once when fourth to Dear Demi’s fifth behind Norzita in the Vinery Stud Stakes on Golden Slipper Day.

Their most recent showdown was in the Group 3 The Roses (2000m) at Doomben on May 18 and Dear Demi just won that battle by a mere short half head to win, support for Gondokoro to turn the tables getting up to the mile and a half on Saturday.

The favourites are also the only remaining fillies under double figures in the markets now too after Express Power, one of two Kris Lees-trained runners in the mix, eased out from $9 to $10.

The daughter of Snitzel got a great gate (two) and won the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) from a horror gate two starts back but the punters seem to be looking at her The Roses seventh over that and the expectations for her to bounce back are waning.

The possibility of a rain affected course for the weekend’s big one has seen punters shy away from a number of other Oaks hopes who have eased out in the markets along with Dear Demi and Express Power including Gai Waterhouse’s The Roses third placed Vaquera ($12 out to $13), consistent Sydney visitor Just As Cosmic ($15 out to $19) and the Anthony Freedman-trained Kazanluk ($21 out to $26).

Along with the rails-drawn Gondokoro who could firm into outright favouritism before jump time on Saturday there’s been a bit of love on some other contenders including the undefeated Waterhouse-trained Porcellanus, Lees’ other runner Soapy Star ($16 into $14) who was second in the GC Bracelet and Stratum filly Proper Madam ($21 into $18) coming off a close fourth in the the Group 3 SA Fillies Classic over 2500m.

The biggest market mover however smashed in from $26 to $18 has been Ireland’s Teardrop, a surprising interest as the Anthony Cummings-trained Fastnet Rock filly has won just one of her 12 starts to date.

She was dead last when ninth last start at Warwick Farm over 2200m, has no real wet track form and was 25 lengths away from Dear Demi when 13th of 15th in the Crown Oaks during the spring.
