Chautauqua Heads Oakleigh Plate Noms
Star sprinter Chautauqua headlines the 23 sprinters nominated for Saturday's $500,000 Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield. Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago-Lovely Jubly, by Lion Hunter) is the highest rated horse in the race and Team Hawkes will be hoping the six-time Group 1 winner can once again reclaim his best after a disappointing spring campaign. The mighty grey was winless in four starts and has not tasted success since his breathtaking and unprecedented third successive victory in the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes in June last year. Tab have installed Chautauqua on the fourth line of betting for the Oakleigh Plate at $9. Russian Revolution heads the market at $5 ahead of She Will Reign ($6.50) and Booker ($7.50).
