Showers are predicted throughout the day in Melbourne with a top of 24 degrees and a 66% chance of light rain in the afternoon meaning the current Good (3) Flemington track rating could be downgraded.

As well as Best Tote or SP + 20% across the card, Ladbrokes.com.au are also running a Crown Oaks Day bonus, an extra 50% on your very first Fixed Odds win bet in Races 1 – 5 if successful.
