Oakleigh Plate Racing Tips For 22nd February 2020

The 2020 Oakleigh Plate will be run at Caulfield on February 22 over 1100m, showcasing some great sprinters in what is set to be a great edition.

Bivouac, Anaheed and I Am Immortal are the 3YO talents set to line up while last year's winner Booker is also set to return.

3YOs and low weighted horses are always hard to beat, and if you can sit on the pace that is always a bonus.

Oakleigh Plate Best Bet - Anaheed

This filly proved she is back in business after taking out the Group Two Rubiton Stakes against the older horses on the weekend.

Oakleigh Plate history sees her fit the mould perfectly of recent winners, a filly/mare who is low in the weights.

Booker was last year's champion, a very low weighted mare who loves Caulfield.

Anaheed seems to have a love affair with the track having now won two starts there, both in Stakes company and she has a Group One placing behind Loving Gaby next to her name.

She will find herself carrying around 50kg and her racing pattern means she will sit on the speed which is crucial in a race like this.

She is a classy filly and I think has improved on what she showed us last campaign.

Oakleigh Plate Value Bet - I Am Immortal

He is the horse I like at odds, purely because he loves Caulfield and there was lot of merit to his listed placing last start behind Jungle Edge.

He has a high cruising speed, ensuring this race will be run at a genuine tempo, a race that right now looks to have a lack of speed.

His last start run he was found out when moving to the middle of the track and just floating when not seeing a rail.

The stable are pulling the reins towards this race instead of the Lightning which I think is the best move for his stud credentials.

The crew have locked in a deal with Swetenham Stud, so there must be some confidence from Swetenham that he can pinch a Group One and will have already locked in a price for him.

If he can run the race the way he wants it, he has shown what an incredible turn of foot he does possess with just 50kg on his back.
