Luvluva is out to frank the Wakeful Stakes form after the Derby Day win for the race’s 2013 winning trainer John Sargent, while there’s a bit of value on offer for third placegetter in that same lead-up Rimraam who is yet to finish out of the money in her seven career runs.

Crown Oaks Lead Up Races

There are a number of key lead-up races that can guide punters doing the Crown Oaks tips each spring. The most successful Crown Oaks lead-up race in the past 30 years is the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m).

From 2009 – 2017 alone the Wakeful Stakes produced four Crown Oaks winners including Kirramosa (2013) who completed the double.

Crown Oaks Favourite

Crown Oaks favourites have a dominant recent record in the race so tipping the top fancy in the Crown Oaks odds has historically been a good tip. Between 2006 – 2017, five Crown Oaks favourites saluted for the punters.

The 2016 Crown Oaks results showed that an upset is possible with the winner Lasqueti Spirit jumping at odds of $101!
