2021 Kennedy Oaks Tips
Our insider Kennedy Oaks Tips 2021 will be published closer to Melbourne Cup week 2021 so stay tuned.
2021 VRC OAKS TIP:
- To Win: #2 Willowy ($4.20 at time of publish)
It is a wide-open Oaks this year and the price on Willowy to back-up off her brave Group 2 Wakeful Stakes on Derby Day to do the double. Miami Bound (2019) and Aristia (2018) have done it in recent years and this Godolphin-raced improver, a daughter of Kermadec, looks on the right trajectory to be the next. Should eat-up the distance, is fit and has upside. D. Oliver aboard from barrier two in more ticks.
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).
From 2009 – 2021 alone the Wakeful Stakes produced eight Kennedy Oaks winners including Kirramosa (2013), Aristia (2018), Miami Bound (2019) and Willowy (2021) who all completed the double.
