Nevele R Stud Australian Oaks Pacing Preview

Nevele R Stud Australian Oaks Pacing Preview

Plenty of pacing fans will be heading out to Tabcorp Park in Victoria as the course prepares to host the Nevele R Stud Australian Oaks on Friday night. Some of the best three-year-old fillies will be making an appearance for a chance at the $75,000 purse. This includes a couple of trans-Tasman rivals.

Tuesday’s barrier draw revealed a very interesting scenario with Western Australia’s Millwood Meg, (starting from barrier nine) going up against New Zealand star De Lovely drawn in barrier ten. While it’s not an ideal position for the two rivals, they can rest easy in the knowledge that those presenting the biggest threats also drew poorly. Rocknrolla sits in the best position at barrier seven and will make a smart bet at online sportsbooks such as bookmaker.com.au.

Millwood Meg has been trouncing the competition in this season’s races as she’s already racked up nearly $200,000 in prize money while taking eight wins and one second place finish in nine starts. There are high expectations for the John Caldow-driven horse entering this race, as plenty of fans will be rooting for an Australian Oaks win to go with the Queensland and Western Australia Oaks wins she’s already taken this season.

As a former New Zealander, pride will be on the line as she takes on her new Kiwi rival De Lovely. This will be the horse’s debut on the Australian circuit, but she won her last three starts, and counts the New Zealand Oaks and Harness Jewels Diamond among her victories.

Potential threats include Rocknrolla (mentioned above), Miss Trickin Lombo (the local favourite) in barrier 12 and Torque In Motion in barrier 13. Get to bookmaker.com.au before the race this Friday to back your favourite pacer or to put down a wager on either of these two rival horses. It only takes a few minutes to sign up, and, since they’re offering the best racing odds out there, it makes it well worth your time.
