Heard from pretty reliable sources that CX op-ups takes status into consideration but SEQ is just as important. The bigger the number, the higher the chances. I had 3 upgrades out of 4 from CX during my last holiday, missed out on the first one eventhough Y was overbooked by 16 seats as I checked in too early (T-3).
A flight oversold in whY is okay as long as there's at least that amount of seats (it's oversold by) available a in a higher cabin on that flight assuming you're not going to checkin early. With some airlines if you left it too late you may be bumped off the flight altogether.
