Blue Diamond Stakes Day Tips & Betting – 2011 Oakleigh Plate

February 25th, 2011

The 2011 Oakleigh Plate is just over 24 hours away and we have put together the hottest tips to help you in your betting this Blue Diamond Stakes Day on Saturday February 26, 2011.

The 1100m Oakleigh Plate is worth over $400,000 in prize money and is the second Group 1 race of the Day at Caulfield.

For this year’s Oakleigh Plate we are picking Mark Kavanagh’s Undeniably who is currently paying $5.50 for the win at Luxbet.

Undeniably has won three of his previous nine starts and has only failed to place twice in his career.

The four-year-old gelding is suited to both a good and a dead track, having won on both.

Undeniably finished second by a short half head last start to Whitefriars in the Group 2 Australia Stakes.

The Fastnet Rock gelding, who beat Typhoon Tracy in his first-up race this prep, has drawn barrier three for the 2011 Oakleigh Plate and will be very hard to beat.

For second place, we are tipping the famous Star Witness.

The Starcraft three-year-old finished third first-up in the Listed Manfred Stakes last start, and although this is a jump in grade, Star Witness has shown us he is a Group 1 winning colt in the past.

Star Witness has won four of his nine career starts to date and has only failed to place twice.

The talented colt, who has accrued more that $1 million in prize money, has most likely gained much needed fitness from his previous run and will be the biggest danger in the field to Undeniably’s winning chances.

Star Witness is currently third favourite in the betting order, paying $7 for the win at Luxbet.

For third we are backing the current favourite, Catapulted, who is paying nice odds of $5 for the win at Luxbet.

The Catbird gelding has won ten of his 19 career starts and is fresh off a win in the Group 3 Rubiton Stakes last start, ahead of Star Witness.

Catapulted has had four wins and three seconds out of his last seven races that were on good or heavy tracks.

Catapulted will be jumping from barrier eight in the 2011 Oakleigh Plate and will be ridden by jockey Michael Rodd.
