The VRC Oaks (Ladies Day) is a Melbourne Cup Carnival feature that has stood the test of time.

First raced in 1861, the Oaks has produced some amazing wins including recently with Miss Finland, Samantha Miss and of course Jameka who subsequently won the Caulfield Cup.

In the last six years, the form out of the Oaks has not proven to be strong enough at the top level as they stretch into their four-year-old season and this year could very well be the same.

Elusive Express currently heads the betting for the VRC Oaks.

2021 VRC Oaks Tips


VRC Oaks 2021 Best Bet - Daisies

It was a great effort for this girl to run second in the Wakeful Stakes last start where she had to cop a big bump to find room, yet was just a sitting duck for the late charging Willowy.

Daisies was ridden by James McDonald that day and will be once again here, the man everyone wants aboard their horse after taking this Flemington Carnival by storm.

Looking the type that is going to stay the 2500m, so if she does, to me she is the horse to beat with the miles into the legs.

VRC Oaks 2021 Next Best Bet - Glint Of Hope

This Deep Impact filly is the one who is bred to be the Oaks winner, from a freak Japanese stayer and out of Sacred Sight who's brother was the champion older stayer in Great Britain in 2012.

These staying bloodlines are expected to come to the fore against many fillies who are just not going to get the trip in what is a very open event at the top of the market.

Glint Of Hope comes through the right form lines around Daisies and Elusive Express, so if we are giving these two fillies a big chance then this girl has to be a huge hope too.

VRC Oaks 2021 Value Bet - Morrissette

This filly is by Pierro who has already produced both an Oaks and Derby winner in his stud career to date, so they can stay.

Having only seen wet tracks throughout her career, Morrissette could well be a better filly on top of the ground, but it is disappointing we will not get to see that as there is rain due.

Her runs to date have indicated that she is a grinder and will be suited to 2500m, and of course back to a big track like Flemington where she can work through her gears.
