The Australasian Oaks is a 2000m Group 1 run at Morphettville and this three-year-old fillies feature is one of the headline acts on the opening day of the Adelaide Racing Carnival.

A competitive field has been assembled for the 2024 edition, where a mixture of Sydney and Melbourne raiders take on some New Zealand visitors.

It's a three-way tie for favouritism with betM, with $6 the quote for Wings Of Song, Vibrant Sun and Coco Sun.

2024 Australasian Oaks Tips


2024 Australasian Oaks Best Bet - Coco Sun

She was a stakes winning two-year-old in Adelaide last season and she's unbeaten in two outings this campaign, which includes a three-length victory last start at Bendigo.

Coco Sun had to overcome a wide draw in that latest appearance and she did put away older rivals via that second-up romp, which tops her off perfectly for 2000m third-up.

While she was competitive when on a VRC Oaks path last spring, the Autumn Sun filly has furnished more as a late three-year-old and building via shorter trips this time in has suited.

I don't think she's an out-and-out stayer, with ten furlongs perhaps her ideal trip and with options early under Jamie Kah from a gun draw, Coco Sun is peaking at the right time.
2024 Australasian Oaks Next Best Bet - Wings Of Song

The Patrick Payne-trained filly keeps stepping up, having won her last six races and that winning streak started in a BM58 at Benalla back on December 16.

A terrific Tasmanian prep followed, which included four victories in the 1600m-2100m range and she was given a short break after taking out the Tasmanian Oaks in late February.

The Group 3 Auraria Stakes is the traditional lead-up to this Group 1 and off a brilliant two length win in that 1800m feature, Wings Of Song has to be the one from that event.

A half-sister to Group 2 winner Cherry Tortoni, Wings Of Song is more bombproof than her talented older sibling, as she's tactically versatile and effective off any tempo.
2024 Australasian Oaks Value Bet - Serasana

John Allen is often to go-to jockey over the Adelaide Carnival and he's aiming for back-to-back wins in the Australasian Oaks after saluting aboard Affaire A Suivre last year.

He's ridden Serasana in her last five appearances, which includes a dominant Sandown Guineas victory at the back-end of spring and that triumph came when fourth-up for the prep.

She made light work of a decent field via that Group 2 romp and with any luck, the daughter of Snitzel would've recorded a return win over 1400m at Group 2 level this campaign.

Serasana was plain after that, however, it was an improved third-up showing after a freshen-up (fastest last 200m of the race) and that Caulfield run warrants a look at this feature.
