Saturday June 3, 2017

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

The Queensland Oaks is the fourth Group 1 race of the annual Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and takes place on a Saturday in early June at Eagle Farm Racecourse. Open only to three-year-old fillies the event is run at set weights, each runner carrying 56.5kg, over a staying distance of 2400m.

The Queensland Oaks offers a total of $500,000 in prize money including $320,000 to the winning connections. The Group 2 The Roses (2000m) held a fortnight earlier at Doomben Racecourse offers a ballot exemption into the Queensland Oaks and is the key lead-up to the Group 1.

The next edition of the Queensland Oaks runs on Saturday June 3, 2017.

Queensland Oaks Odds

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 Scarlett Lady (2011). 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.

Favourites have a strong recent record in the Queensland Oaks with four of the 10 winners from 2006 – 2016 saluting for the punters as the top fancy in betting. The last double-figure Queensland Oaks winner to score a notable upset was Miss Keepsake ($31 in 2010).

2017 Queensland Oaks Odds & Betting

The Queensland Oaks 2017 odds and Group 1 betting markets on the fillies’ staying showdown this winter will be provided below so stay tuned to check the odds on your early Eagle Farm winter race selections.

Queensland Oaks Field

The Queensland Oaks field features a line-up of the winter’s best three-year-old staying fillies, many stepping out over the mile and a half for the first time that campaign.

There is a host of earlier races offering a Queensland Oaks ballot exemption to the winner: the previous year’s VRC Oaks in Melbourne, the New Zealand Oaks, Auckland Racing Club Championship Stakes, Sydney’s ATC Oaks and South Australia’s Australasian Oaks. In Brisbane The Roses produces the bulk of the fillies in the Queensland Oaks field.

The largest Queensland Oaks field in recent years was 20 starters in 2002 when Mon Mekki won from barrier 4 as a $51 roughie. The smallest recent Queensland Oaks field featured only seven runners in 1991 when Triscay was successful. The Queensland Oaks nominations close on a Wednesday in May, about a month before the race. The final field of Queensland Oaks acceptances is released on the Wednesday before the race runs on the Saturday.

Queensland Oaks Tips

Looking for fillies proven over 2000 – 2400m, the best performers out of The Roses, runners that finished top four in the lead-up and runners with winning form in Brisbane are all key Queensland Oaks tips.

The Roses produced 10 of the 12 Queensland Oaks winners from 2005 – 2016, and only two 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 and the New Zealand-trained Provocative came off a sixth back home for her victory in 2016.

2017 Queensland Oaks Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Queensland Oaks 2017 betting tips and exotic race selections will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the fillies to back and sack in the mile and a half Brisbane winter racing feature.

Queensland Oaks Form Guide

The Queensland Oaks form guide features all the essential info punters need before enjoying a bet including the jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up runs of the fillies in the field. Barriers one and 11 have both produced two winners in recent years so gates aren’t crucial to win the Queensland Oaks.

Favourites perform well in the race and the latest top fancy to salute for the punters being Winx ($1.90 2015). She was the first since Scarlett Lady ($4 in 2011).

Queensland Oaks Form Facts

  • The Doomben Roses has produced more Queensland Oaks winners than any other lead-up
  • Single-figure fancies in Queensland Oaks betting have dominated the results in the past decade
  • Barrier one is historically the most successful in the race (since 1983)

Queensland Oaks Results
