Having returned to racing in competitive form this season, Winx has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Australian Oaks betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, currently available at a quote of $4.20 for success.

Posting four wins and a further two minor place finishes through her nine competitive starts so far, Winx debuted for consecutive victories in minor Sydney sprints last winter before returning to the paddock.

Becoming only the second runner to deliver Earthquake a competitive defeat when winning the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) first-up in spring, the daughter of Street Cry ended her short spring campaign second to First Seal in each of the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m).

Having placed seventh in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) and fifth in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) before returning to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) on March 14th, trainer Chris Waller is confident Winx will make a successful step-up to 2400m this weekend, particularly with Joao Moreira aboard.

Fenway produced a career-best performance to win the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) a fortnight ago and offers punters exceptional value for money at current $6 odds in 2015 Australian Oaks betting markets.

Posting varied results over her maiden campaign through spring, including a credible third in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) on Derby Day, Fenway quickly found competitive form this time in; finishing fourth in each of the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) leading into the Vinery.

Allocated the central barrier 8 and confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop Blake Shinn, the High Chaparral filly has reportedly gained even great condition ahead of the weekend and is primed for success.

Thunder Lady boxed on for a credible third in the Vinery Stud Stakes and will return to her pet distance of a mile and a half in the 2015 Australian Oaks, and is therefore more than worth consideration for success at generous $6.50 odds.

Winning the Wakeful Stakes before placing a close second in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) most notably in spring, the daughter of Mastercraftsman beat just one runner home in the talent-rich Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) first-up this time but has continually responded well to increases in distance.
