Schweppes Oaks field & barrier draw
A final field of 16 plus four emergencies has been declared for Saturday’s Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville.
Sydney’s leading trainer, Chris Waller, has three fillies lining up with last start winner Betcha Flying backing up from Flemington, as well as Australian Oaks (2400m) runner-up Toffee Tongue and the 4th placed Nudge.
Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young’s Siera Sue has won four of five starts and has copped the outside gate (20) with Ethan Brown to ride.
The Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) has been a good local lead-up race in recent times, and in 2020, the Tony and Calvin McEvoy-trained Silent Sovereign will be aiming to claim the double.
