Eleonora Straight To Oaks

Thursday, 20th October 2016

Talented Kiwi filly Eleonora is likely to head straight to the VRC Oaks without another lead-up run, reports theinformant.co.nz. Eleonora (Makfi-Sopra Tutto, by Van Nistelrooy) is currently the $7 third favourite for the Oaks following her impressive last start win in the Gr3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield. "She'll almost certainly go straight into the Oaks," said co-trainer Andrew Forsman, who prepares the Lib Petagna-owned filly in partnership with Murray Baker. "The Wakeful was an option if we thought we needed it, but we're very happy with her after last Saturday and she looks great and she probably won't need another run." The Gr1 VRC Oaks (2500m) will be run at  Flemington on Thursday, 3 November.
