Brendan McShane’s flying filly Hot Dipped – dubbed the ‘Winx of the Apple Isle’ – is nearing odds-on territory in Tasmanian Oaks 2017 betting this Sunday at Launceston Racecourse as she shoots for a sixth straight win.
Due to run as Race 6 at 4:08pm (AEDT) on the Vamos Stakes Day card, this season’s $100,000 Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) attracted a 13 starter field.
Heading the line-up in the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival clash, ultra-consistent Written Tycoon filly Hot Dipped is unsurprisingly dominating the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.
She is unbeaten at the Launceston track boasting six wins at the course and hasn’t been defeated since she travelled to Caulfield for an unsuccessful Melbourne raid in August last year.
Her latest three turf triumphs this campaign have all been in stakes company, most recently on February 5 at Hobart in the Listed Les Lees Stutt Stakes (2100m).
Over the same distance at her pet track, it is hard to see the $2 top fancy in the Tasmanian Oaks odds getting defeated.
Just two of her rivals are also under $10 for the win with Wheal Leisure ($3.80) and Triband ($9.50).
There has been a touch of money in the Tasmanian Oaks betting markets for the Archie Alexander-trained Victorian raider Wheal Leisure with the daughter of Artie Schiller drawn in barrier nine.
Michael Dee travels for the ride on the Ballarat-based filly who has won two of her three career starts back home to date, most recently over 2040m at Moonee Valley.
Drawn in barrier two, Triband is a Katelyn Mallyon mount who has finished top three in her four latest runs.
Lindsay Park prepare the Melbourne-trained daughter of Fastnet Rock who is in Tasmania for a second time following the third to Hot Dipped in the Lee Stutt Stakes earlier in the month.
At longer odds worth considering for a run in the Tasmanian Oaks trifecta include the likes of Wyuna ($11) and Sorenata ($14) jumping at opposite ends of the field in barriers 11 and four respectively.
The Scott Brunton-trained Tough Speed filly Wyuna has had seven starts for just the one win to date, but has been brave in defeat behind Hot Dipped in her two latest.
Last time out in the Lee Stutt Stakes she finished second best defeated under a length and is at juicy odds to turn the tables getting.
Sorenata is drawn for a good run, the Nigel Blackiston-trained Victorian raider to be ridden by the in-form Michael Walker on the back of a 2260m success at Geelong in late January.
