The 2020 Victoria Racing Club Spring Carnival is fast approaching and while the Melbourne Cup is comfortably the biggest race that forms part of the three-day meeting, there are other high-profile encounters and that includes the Kennedy Oaks.

The Kennedy Oaks is also known as the VRC Oaks, with this race being available for three-year-old fillies and there’s a purse of around A$1,000,000 available for this race, with the 2020 renewal looking set to be a wide open encounter.

Who Are the Betting Favourites for the 2020 VRC Oaks?

Instant Celebrity can certainly make a name for herself at the VRC Spring Carnival and she’s currently trading as favourite on the VRC Oaks racecard, with odds of 8/1 available about the Phillip Stokes-trained charge who has shown plenty of evidence that the horse is going to perform well in this meeting.

The three-year-old scored a debut victory at Morphetville before landing a more meaningful win in the Schweppes Thousand Guineas Prelude, with the Group 2 encounter featuring a classy field and there will be plenty of punters going for the same horse to claim the spoils.

Montefilia is another eye-catching horse on the Kennedy Oaks race card, with the David Payne horse barely putting a hoof wrong this season and she ran a really strong race in the Darley Tea Rose Stakes at Randwick Racecourse despite finishing in fourth place.

Hungry Heart also lined up in that race and claimed second place and her two runner-up spots at the Randwick track suggest that she can head to Flemington Racecourse with plenty of optimism that she can deliver a decent showing.

Succeed Indeed is trained by Leon & Troy Corstens and she was last seen finishing third in the Ladbrokes Go The Distance Maiden Handicap although some punters will want to see more evidence before backing the filly.

The History of the VRC Oaks

The VRC Oaks is also known as the Kennedy Oaks and it’s the showpiece race on Day 3 of the Spring Carnival, with the race first inaugurated in 1861 and this is a thoroughbred encounter which is run over 2,500 metres.

Some of the best three-year-old fillies in Australia line up for the VRC Oaks, with the actual day of the racing known as either Ladies Day or Oaks Day and this is a raceday which is usually well-attended by thousands of spectators. Miami Bound, Aristia and Pinot are among some of the recent winners.
