May’s Dream Leads Futures Crown Oaks 2013 Odds

A weekend win by the Darren Weir-trained May’s Dream, a top fancy for this month’s Thousand Guineas, has seen the untapped filly also open top of the 2013 Crown Oaks odds this spring.

The daughter of New Approach stormed into contention for the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 16 when she scored a one and a quarter length win over Bulbula in a 1400m handicap at the same track last Sunday.

After that she flew up the Thousand Guineas odds and is now the $5 second favourite behind Peter Snowden’s dual Group 1 winner Guelph ($2.90).

The duo are also two of the 52 nominations taken last week for the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) held at Flemington Racecourse on Thursday November 7 during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

But while Guelph is favourite for the mile feature, it is May’s Dream the bookies have tipped as the fillies go up in distance for the Crown Oaks.

Paying $5 at the top of the Crown Oaks markets, May’s Dream is three dollars clear of the $8 second fancy Guelph who was last seen winning the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on September 21.

Weir however is still not certain May’s Dream will go all the way to Crown Oaks Day as he harbours some concerns over her maturity.

“She has always been a nice filly and she has always shown us a little bit from day one,” Weir told RSN on Monday.

“My only little concern for the Oaks is that if you look at her in the yard there isn’t a lot of her and she is a pretty late foal so whether she gets there I am not too sure.

“If she does I think that she can stay a bit.

“She had two weeks off in the paddock down at Warrnambool so she will be fit enough it will just be whether she can handle the campaign.

“She will be better with another break or two for sure but in saying that they are only three once so if she is coping with it we will push on.”

The next two best in Crown Oaks 2013 betting are then the Robert Smerdon-trained Thousand Guineas Prelude third placed Politeness ($8.50) and runner-up in the Prelude Marianne ($9).

John O’Shea’s Furious Stakes winner Bound For Earth who ran third to Guelph in the Tea Rose, and recent Spring Stakes runner-up behind Victoria Derby favourite Savvy Nature in Newcastle Wordplay then kick off the double figure Crown Oaks chances at $10.

Also high up the markets under $20 are David Hayes’ Morphettville Guineas runner-up Star Fashion ($11), highly spruiked Tea Rose second place-getter Arabian Gold ($12), the Peter Moody-trained Quest For Peace ($15), recent Moonee Valley winner Solicit ($18) and More Than Ready filly Café Scientific ($19).
