2015 Crown Oaks Betting: Top Two Hard to Split

The bookmakers are having a hard time separating the two best fillies in Crown Oaks 2015 betting ahead of the Flemington feature this Thursday on Ladies Day in Victoria.

The third of four Melbourne Cup Carnival meetings, Thursday sees an exciting nine-race Flemington program play out headlined by the season’s top staying fillies in Race 8 at 4:40pm (AEST) – the $1 million Group 1 VRC Crown Oaks (2500m).

A final field of 12 are in the mix, three of which are currently under double figures in Crown Oaks betting at Ladbrokes.com.au who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on the entire card!

Favourites have a gun recent record in the VRC Oaks with seven saluting in the past 10 years, most recently Kirramosa (7/4 in 2013) and this year the narrow top fancy at $3.60 is Sacred Eye.

She is at an easing price in the Crown Oaks odds out from $2.90 after drawing barrier nine for English hoop Ryan Moore, a barrier that last produced a Crown Oaks winner in Faint Perfume (2009).

Prepared by David Hayes & Tom Dabernig, the Lindsay Park-raced daughter of High Chaparral has run top two in all four of her career starts to date with her latest effort being the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) victory at Caulfield back on October 17.

Favourites have a top Crown Oaks record with seven saluting for the punters in the past decade – an advantage to consider if you’re tipping this year’s top fancy at Ladbrokes!

Hot on Sacred Eye’s heels in the current markets at $3.80 is the market mover Jameka backed in from $4.50 to complete the Moonee Valley Vase – Crown Oaks double.

Ciaron Maher’s Myboycharlie filly beat home the boys, including subsequent Victoria Derby champion Tarzino (3rd), in the Group 2 over 2000m on Cox Plate Day and is looking to continue to frank this year’s Vase form.

Three-time VRC Oaks winning jockey Damien Oliver retains the ride looking to add to his pervious trophies won with Northwood Plume (1994), Kensington Place (1997) and most recent Special Harmony (2003).

Four of the past six Crown Oaks winners came off a last start victory, but none in the Vase.

Only Ladbrokes are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% across the entire Crown Oaks Day card this Thursday at Flemington so sign-up now and win more!

Jameka is drawn one on Sacred Eye’s inside jumping from barrier eight while the third pick and only other hope under $10 for the Group 1 success is Ambience in gate 10.

The John O’Shea-trained Street Cry filly Ambience won the most successful Crown Oaks lead-up race in history on Derby Day when she put an easy three and a half lengths on her closest rival in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m).

The Wakeful Stakes has produced four of the past six and two of the past three winners, the latest being Kirramosa who completed the double Ambience currently pays $4.20 to do from the same barrier (10).

She has Sydney hoop James McDonald continuing his association on Thursday shooting for his maiden win in his third ride.

Outside the top three after the upset Crown Oaks result this year are Peter Moody’s Group 1 daughter of Savabeel Pasadena Girl ($10) looking to improve on fourths in the Thousand Guineas and Vase at her last two runs, the in-form John Thompson-trained Honesta ($14) who has run second in her three most recent starts including Sydney’s Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) and the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) on Caulfield Cup Day, and winner of the Ethereal Dawnie Perfect ($14) for trainer Clarry Conners chasing his fourth win in the fillies’ classic.
