22/2/2018 Full field of 18 for Oakleigh Plate

A capacity field of 18 plus two emergencies has been declared for the Oakleigh Plate (Gr 1, 1100m), with weights raised one and a half kilograms after champion sprinter Chautauqua (Encosta De Lago) did not accept. Flamberge (Exceed And Excel), who won the race in 2016, is the top weight for Saturday's $500,000 race Caulfield on 57 kilograms and has drawn barrier eight. Flamberge is one of four
runners for co-trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra along with Sword Of Light (New Approach) (barrier seven), Rock 'N' Gold (Rock Of Gibraltar) (14) and three-year-old filly Booker (Written Tycoon) (16). Meanwhile, Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) winner She Will Reign (Manhattan Rain) has drawn wide in barrier 17 with Ben Melham booked to ride at 53 kilograms.
