Four of this Saturday’s Gr.1 Australian Oaks fillies are by former Windsor Park sire MASTERCRAFTSMAN. Last weekend’s Gr.3 Adrian Knox Stakes winner; Luvaluva was chased home by Chilly Cha Cha who finished a close third. The competition looks set between these two Kiwi bred fillies as they pursue the classic title.
The grey Danzdanzdance makes her Gr.1 Australian debut after an admirable third in the Gr.1 NZ Derby. She will be jumping from barrier 3; a draw that has produced four previous Oaks winners. Mastercraftsman’s fourth representative; (She’s A) Treasure ran well on Saturday reassuring her trainer to confirm her place and run for contention tomorrow.
