Habibi a clear-cut favourite for Oaks
12:50 AEST Wed Apr 17 2013

A field of 11 has accepted for the $550,00 Australian Oaks at Randwick on Saturday.

The Group One staying test for three-year-old fillies includes New Zealanders Habibi and More Than Sacred who have drawn alongside each other.

New Zealand Derby winner Habibi, who will jump from gate three, is a clear-cut $2.60 favourite after markets were re-opened following the barrier draw.

More Than Sacred, who will be trying to add Saturday's Classic to her New Zealand Oaks victory, has gate two and she is on the fifth line of betting at $11.

VRC Oaks winner Dear Demi has gate six while Royal Descent, one of the best-backed runners since her Adrian Knox Stakes win last Saturday, will start from barrier nine.
