First run and won in 1884, the Oakleigh Plate has dominated by Australia's best sprinters for almost 150 years.

Ran over the 1100m distance, the Oakleigh Plate is worth $500,000.

A weight for age contest, the Oakleigh Plate is the middle leg of the Autumn Sprinting Series, which also includes the Lightning Stakes and the Newmarket Handicap.

Ran over a variety of distances, in 1997 the 1100m trip was settled upon. Today the race has become a stud making race of sorts with Russian Revolution and Starspangledbanner among the horses who have successfully gone on to become studs.

Oakleigh Plate Form Guide

The middle leg of the Autumn Sprinting Series in Melbourne, the Oakleigh Plate is preceeded by the Lightning Stakes. 

It recent times it has been somewhat of a crapshoot for punters. In 2019 Booker upset the hot-pot favourite Nature Strip, while in 2017 Sheidel tipped out punter's pick Extreme Choice.

It worth looking outside the favourites when punting on the Oakleigh Plate and there's invariably a lot of value in picking winners in the last G1 of the Blue Diamond Stakes Day.
