Michael Kent Jnr’s Oaks & Stakes Day Preview

Michael Kent Jnr's Oaks & Stakes Day Preview

Co-trainer Michael Kent Jnr has partnered with racingbase.com.au for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and will be providing weekly previews of the stable’s runners.

Kent has been extremely accurate each week steering readers into winner after winner while also turning them away from horses that just aren’t ready yet or have conditions against them.

The Price Kent Racing team has one runner on Oaks Day and a couple on Stakes Day to finish off the Flemington Carnival on Derby Day as well as a runner in the Golden Eagle at Rosehill Gardens.


Race 8 – DAISIES – 5:10PM Kennedy Oaks (2500 METRES)

“What a preparation by this girl.
“She’s done it all in one prep and this is her Grand Final.
“She still feels really well and we expect her to run well today.
“She hit the front a little early last start and decided to look around a fair bit.Now that James (McDonald) has had a good feel of her and we’ve drawn well, we can sit maybe a pair further back and “really time her attack on the line.
“We expect another really good showing from her.”

Race 1 – OUR PLAYBOY – 12:40PM Incognitus Recognition Trophy (1600 METRES)

“Any rain around will only benefit his chances.
“He genuinely grows another leg on a rain effected track.
“He’s had a long preparation and may be looking for the paddock.
“Drawn a really nice barrier which should help him get the run we need.
“Place chance for this race.”

Race 2 – HEZASHOCKA – 1:15PM Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600 METRES)

“Time for this guy to show us something on the track.
“He’s up to a trip now that should suit him.
“Any rain around certainly won’t hurt his chances.
“Barrier 2 means he can be put into a lovely spot and really work into the race.

Kent’s Best for Oaks Day

“A quieter Saturday for us, so our Best Bet is definitely Daisies today (Oaks Day). Hopefully we see her relax, get an economical run and then she can show us that nice turn of foot again.”
