2021 Australasian Oaks Tips

2021 Australasian Oaks Best Bet - Hela

Leading Tasmanian trainer Scott Brunton is still on the hunt for his first Group One winner and gets his best chance yet to record that on Saturday with this three-year-old who is unbeaten from seven starts on the 'Apple Isle'.

While it's always a hard task to work in Tasmanian form with Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide references, there's a genuine query on the strength of this three-year-old crop which is flowing on to Australasian Oaks, where there's certainly no standouts.

Breaking a Hobart track record in her one attempt over a similar journey (2100m) back in February, Hela is a straight forward galloper that puts herself on the speed and is one that is capable of sprinting off any tempo, being bombproof to date.

2021 Australasian Oaks Value Bet - Tokorangi

Set to have her first tilt in Australia is this daughter of Redwood who has had all of her starts spaced out, making one appearance a month since September last year, the last of those coming in the New Zealand Derby.

After being beaten for speed over seven and eight furlong attempts, stretching out over the longer trips has seen Tokorangi find her feet earlier in her recent efforts and settle closer to the speed, which she'll need to do here from barrier two under Mark Zahra.

With the ability to run out a strong 2000m and a Kiwi that prefers a firmer racing surface, she has been thereabouts in every start so far and there isn't much to knock presently at a double figure quote,

2021 Australasian Oaks Roughie - Mozzie Monster

While the 1400m to 2000m pattern is a little unconventional and not necessarily ideal, she was scratched from two events last Saturday, so perhaps she's exactly where trainer John Sadler wants her at present.

Winning her first two starts before competitive showings in Melbourne fillies features last spring, there's no doubting the daughter of Sebring has her fair share of ability and off most of her references, has the class to measure up against this line up.

Mozzie Monster arrives off a pair of seconds behind Annavisto, a filly who would be too slick for these at 1400m and despite the 10 furlongs being an obvious query, the price is there for the risk while many of her more fancied rivals have question marks themselves.
