2017 WA Oaks Field & Betting: Royal Star Odds-On Favourite

The Grant & Alana Williams-trained Royal Star remains the firming favourite in WA Oaks 2017 betting for this Saturday’s feature race at Ascot Racecourse.

With the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival action ramping up, this weekend race fans are treated to a smart field of nine three-year-old fillies facing off in the $250,000 Group 3 W.A. Oaks (2400m).

Heading the WA Oaks odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au paying a short $1.40 to post her fourth win at career start number five is Redoute’s Choice filly Royal Star.

She was last seen enjoying a tidy two length win at the track in the Listed Natasha Stakes (2200m) on March 18 with Perth’s most prolific hoop William Pike aboard.

This weekend Royal Star is drawn a treat in barrier two, has Pike retaining the ride and looks like she will easily run out the mile and a half based on her last effort as she steps up to Group 3 class in peak form.

There are two other fillies under double figures in the latest WA Oaks markets with the rails-drawn Very Tempting ($5) and Just Like Fire ($9.50).

Very Tempting is one of the three other Williams-trained stablemates taking on Royal Star in this year’s WA Oaks field.

She comes off a third to Saturday’s favourite in the Natasha Stakes in another honest effort, but how she’ll turn the tables on Royal Star remains to be seen.

Just Like Fire meanwhile is prepared by Julie Clements and is another Natasha Stakes graduate out to improve on her brave fourth in the traditional WA Oaks lead-up.

There has also been a tickle of money come in for the Natasha Stakes runner-up Vain Stryker who has firmed in from $13 to $12 to reverse the quinella.

Myalup-based Justin Warwick prepares the Authorzied filly who surprised many last time out finishing second to Royal Star as a $101 roughie in betting.

Improving the further she goes, there is a slim chance Vain Stryker will improve again and run another cheeky race over the distance.

The only other filly rated any kind of chance of posting a notable upset in the WA Oaks results on Saturday is the consistent Williams-trained Perfect Rose.

The daughter of Domesday has run third in her two lead-up races, including over 2100m at Ascot with Pike aboard on March 17.

She is as yet untested in black-type company and how she handles the tougher class of rivals this weekend will be key to her and jockey Peter Hall’s chances of stopping Royal Star.
