Australian Oaks 2012 – Betting Update

April 19th, 2012

Betting odds have been released for the 2012 Australian Oaks, which will take place at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 21, 2012.

Streama is the $1.60 favourite to win the 2012 Australian Oaks at bookmaker.com.au.

The Stratum filly finished second to Mosheen in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes last start ans will be attempting the 2,400 metre distance for the first time in her career.

Trainer Guy Walter feels she will handle the trip.

”We thought originally at the end of last preparation about the Doncaster,” Walter said. ‘

‘We were pretty disappointed with her effort in the Coolmore; she didn’t have much luck but she had to run well there to run in the Doncaster.

”The other factor is she is a lot more relaxed this campaign. Last time in you wouldn’t have thought she could get the Oaks trip.

“’I don’t think you ever really know if they’ll run the 2400 metres until you try them.

”It is a lot different running on at the end of 2000m at Rosehill than it is running 2400m on a bog at Randwick.”

Walter is also hopeful Streama will handle the wet ground in the 2012 Australian Oaks.

”She is coming along very well,” he said.

“It is unfortunate she is going to strike what looks like a pretty wet track.

“She can handle it wet but I’d prefer it not to be wet. She is a classy filly, and we are relying on that class pulling her through on Saturday.”

Full Of Spirit is currently the $4.80 second favourite for the 2012 Australian Oaks at bookmaker.com.au.

”The New Zealand filly was very good last Saturday,” Walter conceded.

”She is just coming good, and I see her as a major threat in the Oaks, she is obviously the testing material for us.”
The least backed runner in the 2012 Australian Oaks is Suzanne, who is paying odds of $81 at bookmaker.com.au.
