2019 VRC Oaks Futures Tips - Thursday, November 7

The VRC Oaks is a timed honoured 2500m event, run on the Thursday of the Flemington Carnival for the three-year-old fillies.

This race carries a purse worth $1 million and the winner becomes a very valuable broodmare.

The past few years have seen an upset in the Oaks, but some of the best fillies have won this event in the past.

Superstars including Jameka, Samantha Miss, Miss Finland and Special Harmony have been some of the greatest horses to win the race in the past 20 years.

This year, Flit has a hold on the market while Celestial Falls sits on the second line of betting.

VRC Oaks Futures Best Bet - Celestial Falls @ $9

An impressive winner of the Oaks trial on September 25, she looks set to resume her Oaks campaign at Caulfield on Caulfield Cup day.

She was an all the way winner at Flemington, winning by over a length on the line at only her second run for the prep, so there would still be a lot of improvement left in her.

The winner of the Oaks trial two years ago subsequently won the Oaks while Greysful Glamour won last year and finished second in the Group One.

Mark Newnham trains this galloper, as he did Greysful Glamour, so he knows the formula to win a race like this.

She will only need to improve a little to prove a force in this race.

VRC Oaks Futures Value Bet - Beauty Bolt @ $41

She was very disappointing two back in the Jim Maloney, but showed a much improved effort in the Edward Manifold on October 5.

She was 14th in the run on straightening and managed to pick a path through the field to end up in fifth position, just two and a half lengths from the winner.

She will likely step out in the Ethereal Stakes this week at Caulfield and will go around at rough odds again, but watch to see if she can find the line as she did last start.

If she can hit the line hard over extra ground, she is a blowout chance in this race.

What time is the first race on VRC Oaks day?

The first race will jump at 1.50pm.

What time is the VRC Oaks?

The Oaks will be run at 5.50pm.
