Australasian Oaks 2020 Betting: Affair To Remember On Top

Dan O’Sullivan’s in-form Tornado filly Affair To Remember is sitting top of the odds for Saturday’s 2020 Australasian Oaks at Morphettville.

The key support act on the Robert Sangster Stakes Day race card, this year’s Group 1 Australasian Schweppes Oaks (2000m) features a capacity field of fillies and currently five are at single-figures to win.

Heading the Australasian Oaks odds online through Ladbrokes.com.au at $5, Affair To Remember has come up trumps with a favourable barrier five draw for jockey John Allen.

Allen reunites with the filly having been aboard for a third at Sandown-Hillside back in March, which the filly backed-up from to win at the Lakeside track over a mile next start.

Last time out she finished third at Caulfield from a wide alley (13 of 14) in the VOBIS Sires Guineas (1600m) and faces a distance test in the Oaks this weekend.

Occupying the second line of Australasian Oaks betting at $7 is the well-credentialed Toffee Tongue out to shrug her placegetter status.

Chris Waller’s Tavistock filly has run second four times on the trot ahead of Saturday including behind Colette in the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) run on a Heavy (8) at Randwick on April 11.

Coming back to 2000m should suit this weekend with Toffee Tongue also drawn well in barrier three.

Waller won the 2017 edition of the race with Egg Tart and saddles-up two other livewire chances in this year’s Schweppes Oaks field with Betcha Flying ($8.50) and Nudge ($9).

Uncle Mo filly Betcha Flying earned her start in the field with an eye-catching win at Flemington on ANZAC Day over 1700m in the same three-years-old handicap race that produced Egg Tart for her Oaks success three years ago.

Nudge meanwhile is an ATC Oaks graduate like Toffee Tongue, the recent Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes third placegetter having ran a credible fourth when stretched out over the mile and a half.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 in the markets are Vegas Jewel ($7.50) prepared by former Melbourne Cup winning trainer Mark Kavanagh and Tony & Calvin McEvoy’s Silent Sovereign ($8.50).

Kavanagh won the 2009 edition of the ‘race that stops a nation’ with his class stayer Shocking and Vegas Jewel is by that champion sire.

She ran sixth in last year’s Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington and has been unplaced twice this prep after suffering wide barriers.

This weekend getting out over a more suitable distance, Vegas Jewel has also finally drawn a gate to suit in four and presents as a danger.

Coming off better lead-up form, Dalakhani grey Silent Sovereign is out to extend her winning streak after a lead-up victory in the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) at the track on April 18.
