Race 8 – Quaker Jet NSW Trotters Oaks – The main event of the day will see a total of $50,000 in prize money on offer. Une Belle Allure will start as the favourite in this despite a poor result last start. She had won four straight prior and will be priced based on those results. Looks tough to beat. Kinvara Sue has been brilliant all year, finishing in the top 2 every time, with 4 wins and a pair of second places. On form, she has very strong claims here and is the biggest threat to the favourite. Four Walls is also a very consistent performer, picking up 4 runners up results, a third place and a fourth on debut. She has been steadily improving since. Pegasus Elegance is a regular at this track and will be having her first run over a run longer than 2300 metres here. She has been more suited to the mile runs but could surprise here as she has been preparing well for this.
Betting: Une Belle Allure $3.00; Nieta $3.60; Kinvara Sue $3.70; Pegasus Elegance $5.50; Ima Bourbon Girl $9.50; Four Walls $15.00
