2021 Oakleigh Plate Tips


Oakleigh Plate 2021 Best Bet - Bold Star

A runner down in the weights who ran in this race last year, this galloper ticks those boxes.

Bold Star was great first-up at Caulfield in the Rubiton where he gave the winner Prophet's Thumb 3kg, now turning the tables and getting a 2.5kg weight swing for a 0.2lmargin.

He was super in this last year seeing that it was a leaders track, coming from the back of the field and rocketed home to finish just three lengths off Pippie who led all the way.

At the price and the weights, this is who I want to be with each-way.

Oakleigh Plate 2021 Next Best Bet - Brooklyn Hustle

The stable have been very strong in their opinion that this mare has come back bigger and better than ever.

She measured up in open Group One company last prep when finishing fourth in the Manikato Stakes over 1200m and her best runs have come fresh, so she should be in the finish with even luck again.

Although Brooklyn Hustle has never won outside of Moonee Valley, this race is not super strong on Group One depth and with a lightweight, she is well suited.

With a touch of x-factor and stable confidence, she should be right in the finish.

Oakleigh Plate 2021 Value Bet - Sword Of Mercy

Way over the odds is how I am describing this smart mare, especially after a luckless run last start in the Prophet's Thumb race where she arguably should have won.

Before that, she was second to Fabergino who is a gun down the straight and that runner was subsequently rave in a Group One Lightning when finishing fourth.

She won over this trip three back and with just 52kg from a soft gate, will only need a split to be in the finish.

At double figures the place, Sword Of Mercy looks an outstanding bet in the 2021 Oakleigh Plate.
