2017 VRC Oaks Field & Betting: Aloisia Odds-On

Flying Aaron Purcell-trained filly Aloisia is the odds-on favourite in VRC Oaks 2017 betting on the Kennedy Oaks field facing off at Flemington Racecourse on Thursday.

After the action of the 2017 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, Day 3 of the Melbourne Cup Carnival is Ladies’ Day headlined by the Group 1 $1 million Kennedy Oaks (2500m) – registered as the VRC Oaks and formerly known as the Crown Oaks.

This season’s VRC Oaks field features just a dozen three-year-old fillies and all the rage in VRC Oaks odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au is Aloisia ($1.60).

Winner of the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) two back, the daughter of Azamour showed outstanding ability flying home over Cliff’s Edge to defeat the colts and geldings by three and a half lengths in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) last time out.

That was a perfect Crown Oaks trial suggesting coming back to Flemington where she has previous winning form against her own kind, Aloisia can salute for the punters on Thursday.

Jockey Luke Nolen retains the ride and the duo jump from barrier nine as Aloisia looks to complete the Vase – Oaks double recently achieved by her currently suspended former trainer Ciaron Maher in 2015 with Jameka.

Aloisia was formerly trained by the suspended Ciaron Maher who won the Crown Oaks with Set Square and Jameka in 2014 and 2015

The danger in Kennedy Oaks betting this spring at $5.50 to score the upset is the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Pinot.

Like Aloisia, this in-form young stayer chases win number three on the trot.

Two back she was an emphatic three and three-quarter length winner over 1800m at Flemington before the well-bred Pierro filly saluted by nearly two lengths from a wide barrier (15 of 16) on Caulfield Cup Day in the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m).

On Thursday Pinot and jockey Stephen Baster jump from gate six looking to do the double Set Square completed for Maher in 2014.

The last of the single-figure fillies in the markets at $7 is fellow last start winner Luvaluva on the shorter back-up out of Derby Day’s Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m).

The Wakeful Stakes has produced more VRC Oaks winners than any other lead-up in the past 30 years including most recently Kirramosa (1st in 2013).

Luvaluva is prepared by the same trainer as Kirramosa, John Sargent, and has Blake Shinn retaining the ride from barrier seven this week.

The other standouts in the VRC Oaks field include the ultra-consistent Lindsay Park-trained Commands filly Rimraam who was second in the Ethereal Stakes and third in the Wakeful, and early market mover Reliable Dame coming off a fourth in the Listed Geelong Classic (2200m) against the Derby hopes.
