Chris Waller, a three-time Queensland Oaks winning trainer, takes centre stage with five confirmed runners even after the stable’s early withdrawal of Tutta La Vita (16).

Heading the Waller contingent is favourite in Queensland Oaks betting at Ladbrokes, Scarlet Oak ($3.50).

This Kermadec filly boasts an impressive record of three wins from four starts, with her latest victory coming in the Group 2 The Roses at Doomben.

However, she faces a challenge in the form of a wide barrier draw (15) for jockey James McDonald.

Waller’s stable boasts other contenders, including the fast-improving Ahuriri ($5.50) and The Roses runner-up Mare Of Mt Buller ($8.50), who could surprise with their favourable barrier positions.

New Zealand sends a strong challenger in Group 1 NZ 1000 Guineas winner Molly Bloom ($5.50) who is also a recent two-time Group 2 champ with a recent good showing in The Roses.

Ridden by Blake Shinn, she has the potential to cause an upset.

With a full field and various form lines represented, the 2024 Queensland Oaks promises to be a close race.

Don’t miss out on the excitement – check out the full field and barrier draw along with the latest markets at Ladbrokes.
