Gypsy Goddess and Aravene dominate the early Queensland Oaks market

Group l racing continues at Eagle Farm this Saturday where we will see the running of the Queensland Oaks (2200m), with Gypsy Goddess and Aravene dominate the early market.

2022 Queensland Oaks Speed Map

Nyota needs another scratching to gain a start but if it eventuates, she will lead. Barb Raider won’t be far away, like she was last Saturday. I think Aravene will roll forward and despite drawing wide, I think Pike will roll the dice on Gypsy Goddess like he did in the ATC Oaks and roll forward.

2022 Queensland Oaks Runner Preview

1. Barb Raider: Loved the way she dug in late to win last Saturday in The Roses. Admittedly she had the A1 run in transit but still had to take advantage and she did. Extra 100m is a query but she’s so genuine.

2. Gypsy Goddess: Half decent steer and Gypsy Goddess wins. Half decent steer and she would have won the Bracelet at the Gold Coast. Pike gave her absolutely no hope of winning and she actually did a remarkable job to get as close as she did. Fitter, up in trip…any hint of initiative and she’ll be too good.

3. Glint Of Hope: Last start Group l winner so she commands respect. Won the SA Oaks where she was given a peach by Daniel Moor and drove hard late nearer the inside to win. Was due to run in The Roses but has been kept on ice for this. Definite winning chance.

4. Biscayne Bay: Seven weeks between runs when racing in The Roses last Saturday and just looked a bit rusty, but was okay late. I doubt she’s good enough to win, but she has the Maher/Eustace camp and it’s a Grand Final.

5. Mokulua: What a set up this is. Seven day back up after racing last Saturday in the Fred Best (1400m), and she was very good. She would be a moral next week in the Gunsynd off that run, but they come here at 2200m. Fascinating watch. Can she win? I doubt it, but a must for multiples.

6. Honeycreeper: Honeycreeper was scratched from the Bracelet to try and bring fresh legs into this. Hasn’t raced since the ATC Oaks where she was one of the runs of the race given the race shape and track pattern behind El Patroness. Has class and that will carry her a long way in a race with limited genuine winning chances.

7. Gin Martini: Thought she had her chance on speed last Saturday in The Roses and battled away okay in defeat when fourth. She will stay, but I doubt she’s good enough to fend them off.

8. Festival Dancer: Just a run in The Roses I thought last Saturday and off that, I can’t see her improving enough to threaten. Looking elsewhere.

9. Dynasties: Won the Bracelet before going to Rosehill where she looked like a donkey on the bottomless track. Back on firmer footing and the big lead for me is that J Mac sticks from the Bracelet.

10. Verona: Has the Maher/Eustace polish but she just lacks a turn of foot. If it was a proper slog, she’s in the mix, but I doubt it will be.

11. Belle Savoir: Surged and just missed on the win in The Roses last Saturday. Off that, the trip is fine…but is that the right form reference? I’m saying no.

12. Aravene: If she brings her wet track form to here, she wins. But, there is enough body of work throughout the Carnival to suggest wet to dry is a recipe for disaster, and I do question what she has beaten. But, she could blow them away really. Market will be fascinating.

13. Charity Spirit: SCR

14. Smirk: She was there to win The Roses last Saturday. Just couldn’t quite finish it off when a narrow third. I think she struggles to turn the tables and I don’t think that’s the right form reference.

15. Teranga: Very interesting placement. Kept on ice since racing over the mile over a month ago when second to Canadian Dancer, working to the line pretty well. Straight to 2200m with a gap between runs…very interesting, and this stable are very astute.

16. Le Villi: Warmed to the task nicely last Saturday in The Roses. If this was a 2400m Oaks, I’d be really keen on her. Just 2200m is the knock but she’s a filly with talent.

17. Rosie Impact: She was very good from the back behind Aravene at Rosehill. If she found something easier, she’d be a good thing. First four chance at best.

18. Nom De Plume: Spotted them way too much head start in The Roses. Another that would love this at 2400m rather than 2200m. First four is her aim I’d say.

19. Cupid’s Kiss (First Emergency): Well done on getting a start, but she’s a country horse at best. Can’t win.

20. Nyota (Second Emergency): In with a shout if she gets a run. Strong on speed win at Hawkesbury last time and was edging clear late. The trip will be no issue, she has the right racing pattern…she’ll give a sight.

21. Pioneer Lass (Third Emergency): Trip will be no issue but the class could be another thing. Doubt she gets a run, but if she does, she can finish the first half of the field.

22. Chayse N Tiara (Fourth Emergency): Dominant win last start on the Poly at the Sunny Coast but it was a thin race. Harder here. Can’t see her troubling them.

23. Savagal (Fifth Emergency): Okay late on Monday, but she isn’t up to this level.
