Only 11 horses are taking up their chance after the Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw was released.
With the defection of early favourite Atlantic Jewel on Saturday, the Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw made more interesting reading to punters.
Instead of having a one horse race that the Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw promised, it is now open with Luxbet having the Graeme Rogerson trained galloper Dowager Queen favourite at $3.70.
The 2500m distance query is held over all fillies but when analyzing the Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw, Dowager Queen and Ravheel Luxbet $6 look best placed to run it right out.
Dowager Queen will run it out by evidence of recent performances and Ravheel through breeding.
Rogerson has talked up the chances of Dowager Queen and he should be respected having won the VRC Oaks with Grand Archway in 1998.
Never to be dismissed in this race is Bart Cummings who saddles up Gliding.
The Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw hasn’t been kind in the fact she has drawn barrier 10.
Bart Cummings has a great record in the Oaks and will be trying for his tenth winner with Gliding.
Cummings has won the VRC Oaks with Light Fingers (1964), Sanderae (1970), Leica Star (1974), Taj Eclipse (1983), Tristanagh (1989), Weekend Delight (1990), Richfield Lady (1991), Magical Miss (2001) and Faint Perfume (2009).
Luxbet believe Gliding is an eachway chance and have made her $7 fixed odds.
A distance risk is Mosheen who is well in the betting with Luxbet at $4.20.
She is the class runner but goes from 1600m to 2500m.
Trainer Robert Smerdon put her in the race after Atlantic Jewel was scratched.
After the Crown Oaks 2011 field and barrier draw was released she drew perfectly in two, but that staying prowess is in question.
Luxbet have her her safe at $4.20
