Saturday’s Cox Plate third placegetter Yankee Rose appears to have a mortgage on the 2016 Crown Oaks and is a raging $2.00 favourite at Sportsbet.
Yankee Rose finished behind champion mare Winx and quality galloper Hartnell in the Cox Plate, albeit 8.75 lengths in astern. Before that run she stormed home to win the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick in Sydney.
It will take something special to defeat the All American three-year-old in the Oaks as her form is outstanding to tackle her own age in the $1,000,000 Group 1 event.
Tiamo Grace $8.00 and Harlow Gold $9.00 are the only other runners under double figure odds at Sportsbet.
Tiamo Grace stepped up from a BM64 at Murtoa to run 2nd in the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes at Caulfield. It’s an even bigger step up to the 2500 metres of the Crown Oaks, but she’s an improving type who looks suited at the trip.
Lindsay Park filly Harlow Gold is a capable type, although she’s been just thereabouts in her past couple of outings in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) and Group 2 Vase (2040). She races as though the Oaks distance will be right up her alley.
Next in Crown Oaks betting are Eleonora $11.00, Sebring Dream $13.00, Savvan $13.00, Smart As You Think $15.00 and Moqueen $15.00.
The 2016 CrownOaks will take place on Thursday 3rd November 2016 at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne.
