2016 Australian Oaks Tips

A talented and capacity field of three-year-old fillies has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured 2016 Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) at Royal Randwick; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Jameka has remained outright $3.60 favourite in 2016 Australian Oaks betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au all week, ahead of Happy Hannah ($4.80), Valley Girl and Sofia Rosa; currently sharing the third line at $8.50.

Will Jameka justify her resounding favouritism and win the 2016 Australia Oaks or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Jameka ($3.60)

Jameka is undoubtedly the class horse of the 2016 Australian Oaks field and will be very tough to beat on Day 2 of The Championships, particularly at the conditions of the race. Capping an impressive Spring Carnival campaign with consecutive wins in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) and Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m), the Myboycharlie filly resumed this time for fourth in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) before running on for fifth in the talent-rich Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m). Having produced an impressive effort to finish third in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m), Jameka savaged the line for second in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) last weekend and has been confirmed to be partnered by regular hoop Damien Oliver this weekend.

2nd

Valley Girl ($8.50)

Kiwi raider Valley Girl has posted a number of impressive results this time and is sure to lay a great account for herself in the 2016 Australian Oaks, and at good odds. Posting three wins and two minors through eight career starts, the Mastercraftsman filly resumed for fifth in the Group 2 Royal Stakes (2000m) before taking out each of the Hallmark Stud Mile (1600m) and Group 1 Herbie Dyke Stakes (2000m). Having placed fifth in the Group 1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) on March 5th, Valley Girl charged home for second in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) a fortnight ago and will relish a return to a mile and a half on Saturday.

3rd

Honesta ($8.50)

Honesta ran on for a credible sixth in the Vinery Stud Stakes last start and is drawn ideally on Saturday in barrier 8, with Craig Williams in the saddle. Running second in fourth black type races in spring including both the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) and Crown Oaks, the daughter of Monaco Consul resumed this time for sixth in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) and fourth in the Group 3 Arrowfield Classic (1600m), in what was her only other start prior to the Vinery Stud Stakes.
