While she had to settle for second as a $2.20 favourite in last Saturday's Wakeful Stakes, Zardozi lost no admirers in defeat, with the Godolphin three-year-old just missing the leader and eventual winner following a gallant chasing effort.

Since the Wakeful Stakes, the Godolphin filly has been well-backed to win the 2023 VRC Oaks and at $3 with BlueBet, Zardozi has taken over favouritism from Tropical Squall ($3.80), who won the Group 1 Flight Stakes two starts back.

On a Caulfield Guineas program full of upsets, the daughter of Prized Icon was one of those short favourites who rolled, with Tropical Squall beaten half a length in her first try past 1600m.

Basilinna ($9) was strong late for third in that Ethereal Stakes when placing behind Autumn Angel and Tropical Squall, and while the rise to 2500m seems favourable, Zardozi did beat her by 5.5 lengths two starts back in the Edward Manifold Stakes.

Wakeful Stakes winner Amazonian Lass ($10) is on the fourth line of betting, while Served Cold and Aethelflaed share a $12 quote, with the latter being one of the eye-catchers from the Wakeful Stakes lead-up.

VRC Oaks Winners

The VRC Oaks was first run in 1861 when Palestine was victorious. It has since been won by many of Australia’s most promising fillies including Jameka, Mosheen, Miss Finland and Samantha Miss – all of which have gone on to claim G1 features from then on. 

Worth $1 million, the VRC Oaks headlines the traditional Ladies Day card on Thursday, which is the third day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. 

This 2500m feature was given Group 1 status in 1979 and the current sponsorship is provided by Kennedy, so the race is currently called the Kennedy Oaks, but the fans know this race as ‘The Oaks’.

Personal (2020), Willowy (2021) and She's Extreme (2022) have won the last three editions of the VRC Oaks.
