2021 Oakleigh Plate Horses
1. ZOUTORI $9.50
The 2020 runner-up did all the chasing behind Pippie last year and returns for another preparation. He went 15 lengths faster than standard benchmark in the Oakleigh Plate in 2020, which is better than what any horse in this race has produced in the past two years. First up in the spring he won the Bobbie Lewis (1200m) at Flemington before taking out the Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at that venue. He races well at Caulfield and will settle just behind them but the 58kg might test at the business end.
2. DIRTY WORK $10
Dirty Work was around the mark against some of the best at his last campaign in his first two starts, placing behind Gytrash and Nature Strip in the Concorde Stakes (1000m) in Sydney before running 4th to Classique Legend in the Shorts (1100m). He produced good figures in all of his runs last spring, going 13.6 lengths faster than standard when first up. He won at the track and trip following that and if he can enjoy the breaks from barrier 1 he can feature in the finish.
3. KEMPALPASA $34
The South Australian was beaten three lengths by Behemoth over in Adelaide when resuming and while he took a couple of Group races in the spring, going 14 lengths faster than standard in the Kevin Heffernan Plate (1300m) at Sandown but the 1100 might just be a tad short of his best.

The Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) takes place at Caulfield Racecourse annually in February during the Melbourne Autumn Carnival and is an Open Handicap race for sprinters.
The race attracts the country’s best up and coming sprinters and is one of three Group 1 races to be run on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.
Other races include the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m), Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m), Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m), and the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m).
The best lead-up race to the Oakleigh Plate is the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) held at Flemington Racecourse one week earlier.
Sprinters tackling this race may then continue on to the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) down the Flemington straight course on Super Saturday of Racing.
First run in 1884, the Oakleigh Plate was won by champion racehorse Malua when the race was run over six furlongs. In 1973 the race was adjusted to 1200 and has remained that way since.
The illustrious honour roll lists some very accomplished sprinters including Wakeful (1901), Power Duke (1960), Placid Ark (1987), Schillaci (1992), Fastnet Rock (2005), Snitzel (2006), Weekend Hussler (2008) and Starpgledbanner (2010).
