2017 Oakleigh Plate Odds and Preview – Extreme Choice heads betting

February 22, 2017

caulfield racesThe 2017 Oakleigh Plate has attracted a capacity field of 18 with last year’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner Extreme Choice the ruling favourite at online bookmaker Sportsbet.

Extreme Choice is unbeaten in two first-up runs and also in his only two Caulfield starts, and heads Oakleigh Plate betting at $3.90.

Mornington filly I Am A Star was the main mover in Oakleigh Plate betting following the barrier draw.

The Shane Nichols trained sprinter drew gate 17 and Sportsbet firmed I Am A Star from $10 into $8.00 for the Group 1 event.

She is now on the third line of betting behind favourite Extreme Choice, who has eased from $3.60 out to $3.90.

Fell Swoop and Hellbent have both eased from their opening quotes and share the second line on $7.50.

Last year’s winner Flamberge is $11.00 to make it back to back Oakleigh Plate victories.

“The money has come for I Am A Star and she is now the third best backed runner,” said Sportsbet’s Will Byrne.

“Extreme Choice remains the top pick with punters, but the flow of money for that colt has slowed.”
