Sebring Dreams with Joao Moreira booked to ride, has drawn barrier eighteen in the final field of sixteen plus four emergencies while Harlow Gold with Regan Bayliss engaged, is next to her stablemate in nineteen.

Both fillies will move in four places at start time if all the emergencies failure to get a run in the Schweppes Oaks with Harlow Gold the better fancied in the betting at $13 with Ladbrokes.com.au while Sebring Dram is marked as a $17 chance.

The Darren Weir trained Kenedna has drawn nicely at barrier three with John Allen to ride and remains at the top of the market order at $3.75 while the $4.50 second favourite Egg Tart from the all-powerful Chris Waller stable has also drawn a handy gate at five with Kerrin McEvoy taking the ride.

Harlow Gold will be running in her third Oaks after finishing runner up to Lasqueti Spirit in the Group 1 $1m Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington during the 2016 Melbourne Spring Carnival and then ran fourth last start to New Zealand filly Bonneval in the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick during the Sydney Autumn Carnival.

Sebring Dream also went around in the Crown Oaks for a twelfth and is coming off a last start third to Kenedna in the Group 3 $120,000 Schweppervescence Stakes (Registered as Auraria Stakes) (1800m) at Morphettville on April 22.

Kenedna is the winner of three of her last four starts and is chasing a hat trick after winning the Listed $110,000 Laelia Stakes (1600m) at Morphttville on April 8 before taking out the Auraria Stakes.

Egg Tart is also racing in outstanding form with wins from her last four starts and has been undefeated since winning her maiden at Canterbury back in November last year and the Sebring filly heads to Morphettviolle on the back of a win in a 1600m 3yo Handicap Flemington on April 25.

The Danny O’Brien trained Toffee Nose is well up in the betting at $7.50 following her last start win in the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Heath (2000m) at Caulfield on April 22 but has drawn awkwardly at barrier thirteen.

Sword Of Light also has winning form heading into the Schweppes Oaks but is stepping up sharply in distance after winning the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Reef over 1600m at Caulfield on April 22.

The Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained Sword Of Light has drawn barrier six with Damian Lane to ride and shares the next line of betting at $11 with Kiwi filly Savvy Dreams who has drawn barrier eight with Craig Williams taking the mount.
