Our insider Kennedy Oaks Tips 2023 will be published closer to Melbourne Cup week 2023 so stay tuned.
- To Win: #1 Tropical Squall – BET NOW
Open edition of the Oaks but happy to get back on Tropical Squall. The consistent Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained daughter of Prized Icon won the Group 1 Flight Stakes in Sydney two back over the mile. She was beaten in the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield last time out on October 21 but was drawn wide (12) and carried plenty of weight (59kg). Back to 56kg here at set weights. Has a gun gate three draw and confidence of a previous Melbourne run. Can bounce back.
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 – 2023 alone the Wakeful Stakes produced nine Kennedy Oaks winners including Kirramosa (2013), Aristia (2018), Miami Bound (2019), and Willowy (2021) who all completed the double.
Zardozi (2nd in 2023) was the last VRC Oaks winner to come off a Wakeful Stakes lead-up.
