Every year on the Thursday after the iconic Melbourne Cup runs on the first Tuesday of November, Flemington Racecourse hosts the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) and punters can clean up with a Crown Oaks Trifecta bet picking the top three fillies of the year.
If you have been following the Crown Oaks form of the leading fillies during the spring season and think you can pick which three will finish in the money in the Crown Oaks results, then turn your knowledge into winnings by placing a Crown Oaks Trifecta.
A Trifecta is when you select the three horses in a race that will finish first, second and third in the correct finishing order. For your Trifecta to pay off you have to select the winner, runner-up and third placegetter in that order, so it can be a bit tricky but pays extremely well!
For example, the winning 2016 Crown Oaks Trifecta was:
1st – Lasqueti Spirit ($101)
2nd – Harlow Gold ($7)
3rd – Eleonora ($9)
If Harlow Gold had been able to run down the Crown Oaks winner Lasqueti Spirit, even if you had selected these three runners in your Crown Oaks trifecta, because the order of finish had changed the Trifecta would not have paid out.
How to Pick the Crown Oaks Trifecta
Many punters find there are so many classy fillies in the Crown Oaks field, and with outsiders having a good record of finishing in the placings, often picking the exact Crown Oaks Trifecta can seem daunting.
If you are willing to study the form guide and keep an eye on the betting markets and earlier fillies-only features during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival then selecting the Trifecta becomes easier.
However for punters that are still not sure, then a Box Trifecta is a great option online bookmakers provide.
With a Box Trifecta you can ‘box’ in or add as many other runners into the bet as you like. The bet then covers all combinations of the finishing order, giving you more chances to win big!
Where to Place Your Crown Oaks Trifecta
Once you have picked your Trifecta selections for this year’s Crown Oaks, the only places that guarantee the best prices are the online bookmakers.
While many punters are still using the TAB, smarter bets that win more are those placed at a trusted and easy to use online racing bookmaker such as Ladbrokes.com.au.
