Australian Oaks Betting Tips

Ran as part of The Championships, the Australian Oaks is a race that holds a special place in the hearts of the punters.

The three-year-old fillies fight this race out which means following the form all the way up until the race is imperative. Check back in the week leading up to the race for our Australian Oaks betting tips.

Australian Oaks Odds

The pathway for the fillies can sometimes go elsewhere, but we should have a rough idea of which of the three-year-olds is going to confront the Oaks in the weeks leading up to the race.

The final field will determine which way we bet however, so it is best to wait for the Australian Oaks odds prior to making your investments.

Australian Oaks History

First raced in 1885, the Australian Oaks has been a staple of filly racing in the country since its inception.

First ran as the AJC Oaks, the race has had a bumpy history along the journey with a period between 1895 and 1921 seeing the race not held, resuming as the Adrian Knox Oaks for a further 35 years.

The race has also had a number of different dates, finally setting on the March timeline once The Championships inaugurated.

Today it is run on the second day of the Sydney Championships and has Surround, Light Fingers and Leilani among its former winners. 

Australian Oaks Field

We normally have a rough idea of the fillies that will take to the field in the Oaks but the final number isn't set in stone until the week leading up to the race.

Australian Oaks Form Guide

The Australian Oaks form can be hard to read but in recent times the Vinery Stud Stakes has proved to be a great lead in race.

The winner of the Vinery Stud Stakes gets a ballot exempt entry into this race and in 2019 New Zealand raider Verry Elleegant delivered the goods in stunning fashion to complete the double.
