Crown Oaks 2015 Odds Update: Dawnie Perfect Scratched

Only 11 fillies remain in the 2015 Crown Oaks field and betting markets for the big one at Flemington Racecourse this afternoon after the scratching of Clarry Conners’ chance at a fourth success Dawnie Perfect.

Conners’ three previous VRC Crown Oaks winners were Research (1988), Arborea (1993) and Dear Demi (2012).

He looked to have a livewire hope of another success in this year’s edition of the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) with Big Brown filly Dawnie Perfect winning the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) two back.

She was scratched from the race on the morning of however based on veterinary advice, five-time VRC Oaks winning hoop Jim Cassidy now without a mount in the classic.

Hall of Famer Cassidy’s most recent triumph in the Crown Oaks was aboard Dear Demi for Conners three years ago, and he was chasing his 105th Group 1 winning ride.

He still has a number of good rides on the Crown Oaks Day line-up including Barry Lockwood’s consistent Brisbane raider Hidden Pearl ($6.50) in the $200,000 Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) and $31 outsider Petite’s Reward from the inside alley earlier on the card in the $200,000 Group 3 Gucci Stakes (1100m).

The John Singleton-owned Dawnie Perfect was found to have swelling in her leg and has subsequently been sent to the paddock with an eye on an autumn return.

Her last run this prep was then a fourth in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day last Saturday, a race that has produced four of the past six Crown Oaks winners.

The latest was Kirramosa (2012) who completed the double that the John O’Shea-trained Ambience is out to do this afternoon as a $4 chance through, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on all nine Flemington races for Oaks Day.

Crown Oaks odds are led by the firming favourite Jameka ($4.50 into $3.60) drawn in barrier seven with Damien Oliver retaining the ride after guiding Ciaron Maher’s in-form daughter of Myboycharlie to victory in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) last time out.

Barrier 7 last produced a Crown Oaks winner five years ago with Brazilian Pulse (2010) getting the job done from the gate on the back of a win in the Wakeful.

The bookmakers rate the Vase form to stack up over the Wakeful this Melbourne Cup Carnival however after third placegetter in the former, Tarzino, franked the win of Jameka with his Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) triumph last Saturday.

One-time Crown Oaks favourite when markets on the field opened earlier in the week, Sacred Eye is a big market drifter out from $2.90 to $4.20 to hand co-trainer David Hayes with his second win after the success of Miss Finland (2006).

English hoop Ryan Moore is down to ride the nicely-bred daughter of High Chaparral who won the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) on October 17 at Caulfield over the boys last time out.

Along with Jameka the other big Crown Oaks market mover is the Peter Moody-trained Group 1 winner Pasadena Girl who has been smashed by the punters in from $12 to $7.50 to become a dual elite level winner.

The Savabeel filly won the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) over the Randwick mile in the autumn and comes off two fourth place finishes in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m), a race Jameka ran third in, and most recently the Moonee Valley Vase on October 24.
