Oaks Day Betting Tips

Thursday racing in Australia is headlined by a massive Oaks Day at Flemington racecourse kicking off from 12.40pm! Trent Crebbin is on deck today with some of his best bets from Oaks Day, and he's also thrown in a few cheeky picks from Hawkesbury and Belmont to round out the day. 

Remember, you can check out our dedicated racing website RacingBet.com.au for full meet previews every day this week. 

Flemington Race 5

Two horses at big odds that can run well to potentially beat the short-priced favourite. (3) Decent Raine was luckless two back at Moonee Valley and again should’ve finished closer in Sydney last start behind Fangirl who has since won very impressively on Derby Day. Nash takes the ride and she should run well. (13) Star Waltz is huge odds for a horse that has had no luck her last two. Held up badly at Caulfield and three wide no cover last time, Lane sticks and she can run a cheeky race at massive odds.


(3) Decent Raine E/W


Also: (13) Star Waltz E/W

Flemington Race 6

Favourite (8) Malkovich looks the best bet on the card. He’s never won first up so it was a great effort to run a big race fresh, just overhauled late by Oxley Road who subsequently started favourite in a group 2. Malkovich is unbeaten 2nd up, likes soft ground and should be too fast for these down the straight.

Flemington Race 8

- See our full runner by runner preview for the VRC Oaks HERE! 

The Group 1 VRC Oaks is the Flemington feature and (2) Willowy looks the horse to beat coming off an impressive win in the Wakeful Stakes on Derby Day. She finished powerfully for a good win, looks suited getting to 2500m and with even luck from barrier 2 can claim the feature. (7) Glint Of Hope is a maiden but looks the danger at odds coming off a strong 2nd placing in the Ethereal Stakes where she got back and hit the line well. Nash Rawiller takes the ride and her breeding suggests she’ll love the extra trip. 


(2) Willowy

Value: (7) Glint of Hope ($9.00)

Hawkesbury Race 3

She’s short but (1) Seduction Queen should be too good for these. She was far too good for Van Gogh last time at 1800m and the way she won the extra trip looks to be in her favour here. Van Gogh was well supported and ran okay in a stronger race on Tuesday, and this class 4 isn’t strong. She maps well and all things being equal should be winning this.

Belmont Race 1

Keen on the favourite (3) Thomas Magnum who has opened a very backable price at black odds. His only run as a 2yo was good without much luck and he’s trialled up a storm for this first up run. He’s clearly got plenty of upside and the stable are going particularly well. With even luck he looks the winner and no surprise to see him start in the red.
