Saturday June 4, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The Roses is the key lead-up race for fillies into the Queensland Oaks each winter

The Queensland Oaks a Group 1 race held during the annual Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival taking place on a Saturday in late May or early June at Eagle Farm Racecourse Racecourse (Doomben from 2017-2019). Open only to three-year-old fillies the event is run at set weights, each runner carrying 56.5kg, over a staying distance of 2200m (previously over 2400m up until 2017).

The Queensland Oaks offers a total of $600,000 in prize money. The Group 2 The Roses (2000m) held a fortnight earlier at Doomben Racecourse offers a ballot exemption into the Queensland Oaks field and is the key lead-up to the Group 1 – Scarlett Lady (2011) the last filly to do the double before Youngstar (2018).

The key support acts on the Queensland Oaks Day program are the Group 2 Moreton Cup and $500,000 Magic Millions National Classic (formerly the Group 3 Queensland Sapphire Stakes).

The latest edition of the Queensland Oaks ran on Saturday June 4, 2022 and saw the David Vandyke-trained favourite Gypsy Goddess ($4.40F) overcome the outside alley to salute for the punters.

Queensland Oaks Betting

Futures Queensland Oaks betting opens weeks in advance of the race offering pre-field prices on the likely fillies heading towards the classic. The Queensland Oaks odds on the final field firm once the last round of acceptances is released, and many punters prefer to wait until this time to place their bets.

Fillies coming off a dominant run in The Roses at Doomben often lead the Queensland Oaks markets and the last to complete the double was Youngstar (2018). In 2014 Tinto ran second in The Roses before winning the Queensland Oaks, while Arabian Gold won that year’s The Roses before her Oaks second next-up.

In 2022 The Roses ran over 2100m just one week before the Oaks after being rescheduled due to heavy rainfall, and the winner Barb Raider was brave on the quick back-up running second to Gypsy Goddess in the Queensland Oaks results that winter.

Favourites have a strong recent record in the Queensland Oaks with eight from 2006 – 2022 saluting for the punters as the top fancy in betting including: Egg Tart ($3.10 in 2017) and Youngstar ($3.70 in 2018) – both trained by Chris Waller; the Ed Cummings-trained Duais ($2.80 in 2021); and most recently the David Vandyke-trained Queensland local Gypsy Goddess ($4.40 in 2022).

The last double-figure Queensland Oaks winner to score a notable upset was Miss Keepsake ($31 in 2010). There was a surprise winner at big Queensland Oaks odds in 2019 with Winning Ways (20/1).

The Roses produced 12 of the Queensland Oaks winners from 2005 – 2020, and only three winners in that time ran worse than fourth in the lead-up to the Group 1 when Riva San (2008) improved on a ninth in The Roses to win, the New Zealand-trained Provocative came off a sixth back home for her victory in 2016 and Winning Ways (2019) improved off her Roses eighth to score an upset in the Oaks.

  • To Win: #1 Barb Raider ($11 at time of publish) 

There’s a few varying form lines to follow into this year’s Oaks, and with changes to a number of the lead-up races, it’s a tough ask for the punters! The Roses is usually a pretty good guide, and even having been held over 100m further only last Saturday, still think the winner Barb Raider is a genuine winning hope here. She’s on the quick back-up, but trainer Jerome Hunter isn’t worried. The bookies are and have her out to 10/1 at time of publish, and that looks an attractive price. She’s drawn better than some of those shorter in the markets, and has Craig Williams retaining the ride off his 10/10 performance in The Roses. Runner-up in the Group 1 Australasian Oaks prior to that in Adelaide and ticks plenty of boxes here as a value offering.

Queensland Oaks Results

Notable upset recent Queensland Oaks results include Winning Ways ($21 in 2019), Miss Keepsake ($31 in 2010) and Riva San ($26 in 2008).

The most famous Queensland Oaks winners in recent history include subsequent dual Cox Plate champion Winx (2015), Scarlett Lady (2011), Eskimo Queen (2007) and that year’s Melbourne Cup winning mare Ethereal (2001).
