Jameka has returned to racing in slick form this time and remains outright $3.60 favourite in 2016 Australian Oaks betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

A standout for Ciaron Maher in spring, Jameka returned to racing for third in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) before placing second in each of the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) and Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Returning to winning form with a dominant performance for success in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m), the Myboycharlie filly delivered a talented field another comfortable defeat in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) in early November, in what was her final Spring Carnival start.

Having placed fourth in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and fifth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) upon resuming this time, Jameka has since run third in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and second in last weekend’s Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m).

Happy Hannah has experienced something of a meteoric rise to prominence this time and remains sole occupant of the second line of Australian Oaks betting at a quote of $4.60 for success.

Resuming for second in the Newcastle Basketball Maiden Plate (1300m) at Beaumont on February 6th, Happy Hannah broke through for a maiden race win in the Windsor RSL Club Maiden (1600m) on February 26th before repeating the dose in the All Too Hard BM67 (1600m) a fortnight later.

Having made an impressive transition to black type company when third in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) two weeks ago, the More Than Ready filly will leave from the ideal barrier 7 with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Capella is yet to herald much interest in 2016 Australian Oaks betting markets but remains sole occupant of the third line at generous $7.50 odds.

A strong and consistent performer in her native New Zealand, Capella ended her 2015 campaign with an impressive win in the Group 2 Eight Carat Classic (1600m) on Boxing Day.

Resuming this time for third in the Group 2 Sir Tristram Fillies Classic (200m), the Rip Van Winkle filly placed fourth in the Group 1 NZ Derby (2400m) before a credible performance for fifth in the Vinery Stud Stakes; her first start in Australia.

Valley Girl and Sophia Rose interestingly figure as the only other runners currently available at 2016 Australian Oaks odds of less-than $10; tied on the fourth line at generous $8.50 odds.
