Lincoln Moore's Oaks Day preview




RIALTOR (Race 1)




RACE 1 - 11:52AM G.H. Mumm Handicap (To be run on the Parks Track) (1400 METRES)

RIALTOR has won five of 15 and comes off a Penola win. His effort two starts back after missing the start was big, he gets a favourable barrier and the help of the claim. CHILL WITH TEEJAY is chasing three wins on end. She draws out, is winless form three starts here but is a mare with upside. MANASA draws to get a good run from gate two. METRO LEGEND was impressive last time and should be thereabouts again despite a sticky barrier. MR METRICS draws out but has been good in all three starts. YULONG PATROL has been racing well. BLOOD SWEAT TEARS is first-up for the Alexander stable and was a $1.60 fav when beaten at Pakenham last time out.

SELECTIONS: 6 RIALTOR, 7 Chill With Teejay, 10 Manasa, 3 Metro Legend

PLAY: Keen on RIALTOR each-way.

RACE 2 - 12:27PM PFD Foods Handicap (To be run on the Parks Track) (1250 METRES)

LAST GIRL LOVE draws an inside gate with Jamie Kah and she was favourite here two starts back when beaten by Rich Gina before racing on speed and fading behind Mac 'N' Cheese over the mile. Back in trip looks ideal and she's going to take beating. SHE’S A TOFF won well first-up from a spell at Oakbank. She draws a nice barrier and has solid claims again. Stablemate MISS LANGTRY ran well first-up from a break and is a horse with upside, she does have a sticky barrier but does look over the odds. L’IL PIPER should get a gun run and made good ground behind Aston Rapova last time. MIROKU can run a cheeky race first-up.

SELECTIONS: 10 LAST GIRL LOVE, 8 She's A Toff, 4 Miss Langtry, 11 L'il Piper

PLAY: Something on MISS LANGTRY at $12.

RACE 3 - 1:02PM Thomas Farms Handicap (To be run on the Parks Track) (Heat 11 SA Sprint Series) (1000 METRES)

METEORITE is first-up for the Clarken stable. He has a good record over the short course and looked good a recent trial. He's going to take some catching here. DIAMONDS maps to get a nice run and her form last time in was very good. She was placed in the City of Marion and her latest at Flemington before a break was very good. GAZE GRISE has been racing well winning here two starts back before a nice effort behind All Banter in the Hills Railway at Oakbank last time. FULL PROBE had good form before a break, IRISH MINT will get a nice run here on speed and HEKA EXPRESS ran well first-up before battling at Oakbank behind All Banter.

SELECTIONS: 5 METEORITE, 6 Diamonds, 8 Gaze Grise, 9 Full Probe

PLAY: Backing DIAMONDS each-way at the price.

RACE 4 - 1:37PM H C Nitschke Stakes (To be run on the Parks Track) (1400 METRES)

ILLATION created a big impression winning by 4.5 lengths at Pakenham on debut and gets an inside gate. Jamie Kah rides PERCEPTIVE who draws perfectly in barrier three and was good behind Mac 'N' Cheese here last time over the mile. DEFINING won a Murray Bridge maiden easily before stepping up in class and was super impressive at Oakbank coming form back in the field and winning by five lengths. She has an x-factor and perfect barrier. Stablemate STAR OF CHAOS is second-up and ran well at Caulfield. LIBIAMO has been good at both starts in SA, she drops in distance on the quick back-up from the Redelva but faces a sticky barrier. ASYMMETRICAL was runner-up in the Bendigo Guineas last time and hasn't finished further back than 2nd in all five starts

SELECTIONS: 2 ILLATION, 10 Defining, 7 Libiamo, 5 Asymmetrical


RACE 5 - 2:12PM Breeders' Stakes (1200 METRES)

SEE YOU IN HEAVEN won down the Flemington straight on debut before she resumed and looked disappointing in the Cinderella Stakes. She turned that around to win the Dequetteville last time and should take beating despite the wide barrier. EYE OF THE EAGLE finished strongly on debut when 2nd behind Cannonball at Caulfield at Listed level. He's going to get his chance from a good gate and John McArdle has a good record when he brings horses to SA. TWIN STARS won the Magic Millions race on debut in March and has trialled nicely since. HOPE AT HAND is a progressive type who ran well on debut and followed up by winning well here and draws a good gate. STREET DELIGHT comes off a Sandown win. LALAGUNA is in good hands and was sent out favourite on debut and Jamie Kah rides.

SELECTIONS: 5 SEE YOU IN HEAVEN, 2 Eye On The Eagle, 1 Twin Stars, 7 Hope At Hand

PLAY: Happy to watch this one.

RACE 6 - 2:52PM Chairman's Stakes (2000 METRES)

HARLEYMOVEN is flying and could not have been impressive winning his past couple. The wide draw makes this a task but he's clearly a horse who will thrive over the 2000m and capable of overcoming the poor barrier. SON OF EMPEROR ticks a lot of boxes and unbeaten in two starts since joining the Price/Kent Jnr stable when on speed in both. Any luck from a tricky gate will have him in the finish. JUNGLE MAGNATE was placed in the G2 Vase in the spring. He won first-up at Mornington before chasing home Son Of Emperor last time. GUNDEC ran sixth in the same race last time and won the Bendigo Guineas two starts back beating Asymmetrical. PALANI was good behind Harleymoven here last time and should get a nice run from the inside. YAPHET draws a gate and has solid form, BOOLCUNDA KING flew home from a mile back last time behind Harleymoven, TEEWATERS was good two starts back but a touch plain against the older horses last time.

SELECTIONS: 4 HARLEYMOVEN, 5 Son Of Emperor, 11 Palani, 2 Gundec

PLAY: Something the place on PALANI.

RACE 7 - 3:32PM Grand Syndicates Australasian Oaks (2000 METRES)

MY WHISPER was brilliant in the Auraria when she was caught wide but still proved too strong for rivals. She's a filly who just gets better every time she goes to the races and looks the horse to beat from a perfect barrier. BON’S A PEARLA was good in the same race and her form lines for this a super. She was placed behind Hitotsu in the Vic Derby and was runner-up behind Daises in the Alexandra Stakes. BUNDLE OF FUN has great form for a race like this winning the Tasmanian Oaks before making good ground behind Son Of Emperor at Caulfield. She draws perfectly and Jon Allen takes the ride. DAISESwas third behind Harleymoven here last time when a short-priced favourite, the barrier hasn't helped her chances but she's a very good filly. GLINT OF HOPE is another who draws a nice barrier and was placed in the Son Of Emperor race last tune. She'll get a gun run here. MAMOUNIA draws the car park, but her form is very good for this coming off a Galilee win at Caulfield. MAC ‘N’ CHEESE  has the blinkers going to try and race handy but draws a horror barrier. She's another who can win with the right run. LADY CHANT is the interesting one the WA Oaks winner drops back in trip here but is sure to measure up. BARB RAIDER has been in great form. DOUCEUR is above average and was runner-up in the Vic Oaks, she draws poorly.

SELECTIONS: 6 MY WHISPER, 4 Bon's A Pearla, 17 Bundle Of Fun, 3 Daises

PLAY: Keen on MY WHISPER and something on BUNDLE OF FUN at the big odds.

RACE 8 - 4:07PM City Of Adelaide Handicap (To be run on the Parks Track) (1400 METRES)

ROYAL MILE draws to get his chance here. He should have beaten Night Passage two starts back and then stuck on strongly behind an impressive Black Sail last time and maps to get a perfect run. MORVADA sat outside the leader in the same race and wasn't beaten far in 3rd, he draws a sticky barrier but gets Jamie Kah. ZOIST is low flying and was impressive at Oakbank when he powered over the top of rivals to win. He's unbeaten this track and trip and looks a major chance again. STRUCK BY was on speed and only grabbed late in the race won by Zoist last time. His form since resuming has been excellent. GROUNDSWELL is a winner here and must be respected. COUNTOFMONTECRISTO is a big watch first-up for Travis Doudle. He's won 10 races, four of them first-up did chase home Lost And Running in The Hunter back in November. POINT BLAZE  maps to get a nice run at odds

SELECTIONS: 5 ROYAL MILE, 3 Morvada, 8 Zoist, 2 Groundswell

PLAY: ROYAL MILE should take beating from the good gate.

RACE 9 - 4:40PM James Squire Handicap (To be run on the Parks Track) (Heat 10 Autumn Series) (1300 METRES)

MY BOY BIRMINGHAM has won four of seven starts and hasn't raced since running last at Flemington behind Bermadez. He should be nice and handy to the speed form a good gate and looks hard to beat in an open race. AIGUILETTE was game behind Another Award last time. He draws wide but Has D. Oliver. Stablemate ARKHAM KNIGHT draws a perfect gate and gets the blinkers on. WILD IMAGINATION resumes here and was racing well over further before a break. The stable is flying, and she can run well fresh. LEFT HAND MAN draws to get a good run, while EXTRA TIME is better than his past two and was runner-up behind Rock The Ring five runs back. TRIP ran well behind stablemate Silver On Red last time and can roll forward here and run a cheeky race. Travis Doudle has JAGUARY resuming and YABADABADOO first-up in SA. He has a good fresh record and must be respected.

SELECTIONS: 7 MY BOY BIRMINGHAM, 13 Aiguilette, 16 Wild Imagination, 4 Left Hand Man

PLAY: Backing AIGUILETTE each-way in a tricky end to the day.
