Natural front-runner and Crown Oaks (2500m) winner Lasqueti Spirit has drawn well in barrier 2 and can work to the lead at her leisure before trying to open up a winning margin and outstay the field.

Boom Kiwi filly Bonneval comes to Australia with big expectations and has drawn favourably in gate 6.

The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained daughter of Mafki scored a half-length victory in the NZ Oaks (2400m) last start – the same race Sofia Rosa won before claiming the Australian Oaks last year.

Crown Oaks runner-up Harlow Gold and the progressive Nurse Kitchen have drawn wide in barriers 12 and 14 respectively, while last start winner of the Adrian Knox (2000m), Waking Moment, has fared better in barrier 7.
