Newcastle trainer Paul Perry hopes Vow And Declare's Melbourne Cup (3200 metres) win is a sign that Amazing Peace will out stay her rivals in the group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) on Thursday at Flemington.
Amazing Peace is by the same sire as Vow And Declare, Declaration Of War, and is the only runner by him in the $1 million Oaks.
Perry's contender, a $23 chance with TAB Fixed Odds, stepped up from 1600m to 2350m at her most recent start, at Newcastle, to win and book her trip to Flemington, where she has been based in the lead-up.
The trainer believed her form close to the Oaks distance and her breeding gave her "some hope in the race".
"They are the fashion of the moment," Perry said of Declaration Of War's progeny. "There's not that many around but they've done the job.
"She's always been one of those that's going to stay. She's bred to stay, being out of a Galileo mare, and this was always going to be her aim.
"She's bred to go two laps, so I don't think the journey is going to worry her. That gives you a bit of confidence. A lot of them are a bit unknown but she's won over nearly a mile and a half."
He said Amazing Peace had adjusted well to the Melbourne way of going in work and he expected her to get a nice run from gate two with Nash Rawiller aboard.
Perry's Home Maid was a narrow second to Rom's Stiletto in the 1982 VRC Oaks with Wayne Harris aboard.
