Silent Sedition has returned to racing in slick form this time and remains outright $5.50 favourite in 2016 Australasian Oaks betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Posting three wins and four minors through only eight career starts since first appearing on course in September, Silent Sedition returned this time for an impressive maiden win in the Vic Statewide Conveyancing Maiden (1200m) before making a successful transition to black type company with success in the Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) on March 19th.

Running second to Bengal Cat in the Ladbrokes Cash In Handicap (1600m) on April 9th, the War Chant filly will carry winning form into the Australasian Oaks after taking out the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) a fortnight ago.

Abbey Marie undoubtedly faces the biggest test of her short racing career to date in the Australasian Oaks but is a justifiable occupant of the second line at a generous $6 quote.

Debuting to racing with an impressive performance for success in the Cove Hotel Maiden Plate (1300m) on March 23rd, Abbey Marie delivered a classy field a two length defeat in the JRA BM70 (1440m) on April 23rd.

Drawn ideal in barrier 3, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice has been confirmed to be partnered by Luke Nolen and will be tough to beat under the conditions of the Australasian Oaks.

Perth raider Arcadia Dream has returned to racing in exceptional form this time and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Australasian Oaks betting markets at a quote of $7.50 for success.

Capping an impressive 2015 campaign with success in the Listed Aquanita Stakes (1800m) on December 5th, Arcadia Dream returned this time for fourth in the Listed Challenge Stakes (1500m) before running a close second in the Listed Ascot 1000 Guineas (1800m).

Returning to winning form in the Listed Natasha Stakes (2200m) on March 19th, the Domesday filly placed second in the Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) before charging home to take out the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) on April 16th.

Trainer Grant Williams has no doubt Arcadia Dream will handle a step back in distance to 2000m on Saturday, but the filly will need luck in running after drawing the outside gate.

Believe ($8.50) and Bengal Cat ($9) interestingly figure as the only other runners currently available at 2016 Australasian Oaks odds of less-than $10.
