Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate 2019

Saturday February 23, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: Barriers account for little in the Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate with double digits producing plenty of recent winners

The Group 1 Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate is one of three elite level Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival races that runs at Caulfield Racecourse as part of Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day annually in late February. An open handicap sprint the clash takes place over 1100m and offers $500,000 in total prize money.

Running at the same meeting as the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) the event attracts a capacity field of 18 sprinters.

Many Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate horses come out of a run a fortnight earlier in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) run down the Flemington straight; the last to complete the Oakleigh Plate – Lightning Stakes double was Fastnet Rock (2005).

This autumn’s Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate runs on Saturday February 23, 2019 .

Many horses also run first-up in the Oakleigh Plate field and recent winners resuming racing in the classic include Woorim (2012), Mrs Onassis (2013), 2019 Ladbrokes Oakleigh Plate Nominations

Oakleigh Tips

Favourites in the Oakleigh Plate tips have a poor recent record with only three saluting for the punters from 2008 – 2018, the most recent being Russian Revolution (2018). A good Oakleigh Plate tip is to look at the better weighted runners in the race as only four horses have carried more than 55.5kg to victory from 2008-2018.

In-form mares are also worth including in Oakleigh Plate tipping with three winning from 2013 – 2018  including most recently Sheidel (2017).
