2016 Oakleigh Plate Tips and Betting Preview

A talented and capacity field of eighteen sprinters plus three emergencies has been confirmed for Saturday’s Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Keen Array has continued to receive notable attention in 2016 Oakleigh Plate betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au and has cut into outright $4.60 favouritism ahead of Heatherly ($4.80) and Bounding ($6).

Will Keen Array justify his resounding favouritism amongst punters and win the 2016 Oakleigh Plate or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?


Fell Swoop ($12)

Fell Swoop has more than stamped himself as one to watch through recent seasons, is drawn ideally in Barrier 5 and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Oakleigh Plate betting markets at current $12 odds for success. Winning a pair of Sydney minors over 1100m and 1000m respectively in spring, the Not A Single Doubt gelding made a successful transition to black type company when taking out the Listed Cup Club Stakes (1200m) before repeating the dose in the Listed Testa Rossa Stakes (1200m) on September 19th. Confirmed to be partnered by Glyn Schofield, Fell Swoop will carry a very-manageable 53kgs.


Keen Array ($4.60)

Keen Array posted a number of impressive results through a standout Spring Carnival campaign and has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from his time away from racing. Running second to Bassett in a Caulfield minor over 1100m on September 19th, the Bel Esprit gelding returned to winning form in the William Hill Plate (1200m) before beating a very handy field to the line in the Listed Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m) on October 14th. Keen Array was undoubtedly at his best when he finished second in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) most recently on October 31st and may need his run in the Oakleigh Plate to return to peak condition.


Gregers ($21)

Consistent mare Gregers is a proven first-up performer, will leave from the rails draw and represents terrific value at Oakleigh Plate odds of $21 for success or $6 to finish in the first three. Posting six wins and nine minors through 27 career starts so far, the Commands mare ran an agonizingly-close second in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) in May last year and continued to produce high-quality results through spring; capping her year a close second in the talent-rich Listed MSS Security Sprint (1200m) on November 3rd. Craig Williams takes the ride on the mare who will carry only 53kgs.
