Tasmanian Oaks 2023 Map

Track: Good Weather: Good

Soul Choice looks the only real speed in the race, and looks the leader. I’d expect Just A Needs to land in behind, along with Aesculus and Hoops. Sirius Princess, Unique Glow, Badda Boom Baby and Cloudy Nights should round them up from the back

Tasmanian Oaks 2023 Runner by Runner (Market to 110%)

1. Soul Choice – Rated Price $1.60

Impressive winner last start in the Strutt Stakes. Should control the race and kick clear on the corner. Looks a moral.

2. Just A Needs – Rated Price $12.00

Ran well behind the favourite but can’t see her turning the tables.

3. Unique Glow – Rated Price $51.00

Will be giving better horses a head start. Looks outclassed.

4. Cloudy Nights – Rated Price $35.00

Very slim chance, if any. Ran home okay but again, looks outclassed.

5. Hoops – Rated Price $18.00

Inter-state raider who brings okay form. Should get a nice ride by Liam Riordan and be thereabouts. Place hope.

6. Badda Boom Baby – Rated Price $4.00

NSW-based runner who brings form good enough to win this. Ran well last start when winning. Can test the favourite but will be giving her a head start in running.

7. Aesculus – Rated Price $61.00

Gets a soft run in behind them but don’t think she’s up to these. SA form generally inferior to those visiting from VIC and NSW.

8. Sirius Princess – Rated Price $41.00

Ran well in the VIC Oaks without placing. Can run a cheeky race and will stay the trip. Blowout chance.

Tasmanian Oaks Summary

Think SOUL CHOICE looks a good thing. BADDA BOOM BABY looks the only real danger late.
