Australasian Oaks 2023 Tips


2023 Australasian Oaks Best Bet - Arts

Class-wise, this daughter of Xtravagant has panels on Toffee Tongue, who also came from an Australian Oaks path to take out this Group 1 in 2020.

A brilliant winner of the Adrian Knox Stakes at only her third career start, Arts just didn't quite handle the seven-day turnaround into the Australian Oaks.

Finishing fifth in that Sydney fillies feature, she still wasn't disgraced and jockey Sam Clipperton is back aboard here, who is 2/2 on the three-year-old.

Back to 2000m is another positive and given Ed Cummings often prefers freshen-ups to stretch out a prep, she must've done well since that last run.


2023 Australasian Oaks Value Bet - Whakamana

She's trained by Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young, who prepared last year's Australasian Oaks winner Glint Of Hope and Whakamana's lead-up isn't dissimilar.

This three-year-old was brave throughout a long first prep, breaking her maiden third-up before contesting some of the middle-distance filly's features.

She was competitive in those last three outings and wide gates proved costly in the first two, which included a runner-up finish behind So Dazzling.

So Dazzling was group placed twice over the Sydney autumn, the last of those being a second in the Australian Oaks, so the form has stacked up.


2023 Australasian Oaks Roughie - Proscenium Arch

On ability, this daughter of So You Think has many of these covered, although given her poor racing manners at times, she's a hard galloper to trust.

A brilliant debut winner last winter, Proscenium Arch then placed behind a smart Berkeley Square, an effort that would have her right in this.

At start three following that Flemington run, she then paraded terribly at The Valley and took that bad behaviour into the race, where she hung-out.

Despite that, she still nearly beat Virtuous Circle (Australian Derby runner-up), while third-up on April 10 was the first time she's found the line all prep.
