2020 Kennedy Oaks Tips
Our insider Kennedy Oaks Tips 2020 will be published closer to Melbourne Cup week 2020 so stay tuned.
2020 VRC OAKS TIP:
- To Win: #1 Montefilia ($1.85 at time of publish)
She’s odds-on but is the class filly in the field and the one to beat. Gets a dream run from the gate and comes off an historical Group 1 Flight Stakes – Spring Champion Stakes double success in Sydney. Back against the girls and should handle the 2500m.
- The Danger: #2 Personal ($6 at time of publish)
Has been racing very well in Melbourne but has that perennial placegetter status having run second three times on the trot including in the Thousand Guineas. She’ll need to be good over the extra distance, might not be her go, but if she stays she’s a threat.
- Best Roughie: #9 Star Of Eden ($21 at time of publish)
Looks overs to run in the money again here after three placings from three career starts from this Michael Moroney-trained Wandjina filly. Third in Caulfield’s Ethereal Stakes not far beaten at a big price and looks to have upside.
Kennedy Oaks Lead Up Races
There are a number of key lead-up races that can guide punters doing the Kennedy Oaks tips each spring. The most successful Kennedy Oaks lead-up race in the past 30 years is the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m).
