The 2013 Crown Oaks field has been released; with ten fillies set to contest the $1 million event at Flemington on Thursday.

John Sargent-trained Kirramosa stormed into favoritism in Crown Oaks betting markets with his fast-finishing victory in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) but will need a bit of luck after drawing barrier ten.

Kirramosa started her 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with an unlucky fourth in the Become An ATC Sponsor Handicap (1200m) and returned to the winners circle with a narrow win over Noverach at Newcastle.

The Alamosa filly stepped-up to Listed level for the first time in Australia with a fourth place finish behind Champagne Cath in the Reginald Allen Quality (1400m) and finished a narrow second behind Best Case in the City Tatts Inglis Bonus Handicap (1600m) before making her Melbourne racing debut with a dominant victory in the Wakeful Stakes.

The three-year-old is a clear favourite in Crown Oaks betting markets at odds of $3.30 but will need to join Lee Freedman-trained Serenade Rose (2005) and John Hawkes-trained Tributes (1999) as the only fillies that have won the Crown Oaks from barrier ten in the last thirty years.

Kirramosa will meet a very similar field in the 2013 Crown Oaks at Flemington tomorrow; with May’s Dream, Solicit, Arabian Gold, Every Faith, Tear Gas and Melaleuca all backing up in the Group 1 staying test.

May’s Dream was the favourite in Crown Oaks betting markets before she was outstayed by Kirramosa in the Wakeful Stakes and she showed her class with an impressive victory in the Procal Dairies Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield before finishing second behind champion filly Guelph in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 16.

Trainer David Vandyke elected not to run Arabian Gold in the Thousand Guineas, after the daughter of Dubawi was handily beaten by Guelph in both the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m), and instead recorded her first black type victory in the Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m).

The three-year-old went into the Wakeful Stakes on the second line of betting but was no much for Kirramosa or May’s Dream in the final stages of the race and could only battle home to finish fourth behind Solicit.

Solicit started her preparation with back-to-back wins at Ballarat and Moonee Valley and has raced well without winning since being stepped-up to Group company.

The Street Cry filly finished an unlucky third behind Se Sauver and Star Fashion in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1610m) and was narrowly defeated in the Ethereal Stakes before over racing and finishing third in the Wakeful.

Rounding out the 2013 Crown Oaks field are: John O’Shea-trained Gypsy Diamond, last-start winner Quayside and Guy Walter-trained Zanbagh.

    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
