Percy Sykes Stakes 2022

Saturday April 9, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The Golden Slipper is a key Percy Sykes Stakes lead-up race

The Percy Sykes Stakes was upgraded to a Group 2 feature race for the first time in 2017 and is part of a bumper day of racing at Royal Randwick for Day 2 of ‘The Championships’ each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Officially registered and previously known as the Keith Mackay Handicap in honour of former AJC Chairman Keith Mackay, the event is now run under set weights plus penalties by two-year-old fillies. It takes place on the second Saturday of April* each year alongside four Group 1 races – the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Sydney Cup, Queen Of The Turf Stakes and Australian Oaks.

*In 2021 the Percy Sykes Stakes ran on the third Saturday of April with all race meetings of the autumn in Sydney from Slipper Day onwards postponed a week due to the weather.

Since being added to The Championships series of races the Percy Sykes Stakes has increased dramatically in prestige and prize money and now offers a total of $1,000,000 in stakes. The key lead-up into the race is the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

The 2020 edition of the Percy Sykes Stakes had a reduced total stakes of $500,000 on offer due to the Coronavirus outbreak before being boosted to a million in 2021.

The latest edition of the Percy Sykes Stakes took place on Saturday April 9, 2022 and was won by the resuming favourite Paris Dior ($4F) for Peter & Paul Snowden.

Percy Sykes Stakes Betting

Percy Sykes Stakes betting is open the week of the race and is led by in-form young fillies that have previous winning form on their records over the 1200m distance.

Graduates out of the Golden Slipper field usually also dominate the Percy Sykes Stakes odds each autumn, with barriers also playing an important part in determining the favourites because of the Randwick straight.

Golden Slipper runner-up and that summer’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner on the Gold Coast, Away Game ($3.20 in 2020) followed by Paris Dior ($4 in 2022) are the last favourites in Percy Sykes Stakes betting to salute.

The 2021 Percy Sykes Stakes winner Jamaea scored an upset at odds of $17.

Percy Sykes Stakes Field

Each autumn the Percy Sykes Stakes field continues to attract a better class of fillies lured by the lucrative prize money that includes $580,000 for the connections of the Percy Sykes Stakes winner.

Most of the fillies in the Percy Sykes Stakes field, which runs at a capacity of 14 starters, are Golden Slipper graduates dropping back down in class for a final run of the season before heading out to the paddock to mature ahead of a three-year-old campaign in the spring.

Away Game (2nd in 2020) was the last Golden Slipper graduate to win the Percy Sykes Stakes next race.

2022 Percy Sykes Stakes First Acceptances

The 2022 Percy Sykes Stakes first acceptances close at midday on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022.

Percy Sykes Stakes Tips

The key Percy Sykes Stakes tips are to look out for fillies proven over the 1200m and coming off a last start win. It is always hard to bet against a filly in good form, so Percy Sykes Stakes betting tips favour the up-and-comers who won their lead-up races.

Other Percy Sykes Stakes tips include checking the price of Golden Slipper graduates set to enjoy the step down in grade and those with Randwick form who can handle the straight at the end of the race.

2022 Percy Sykes Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ exclusive Percy Sykes Stakes 2022 betting tips will be detailed right here the week of the race so stay tuned for the fillies to back and sack in your The Championships Day 2 punting.

  • To Win: #4 Ojai ($7 at time of publish) 

Another Saturday in Sydney, another Heavy track and this James Cummings-trained Exceed And Excel filly is the best wet-tracker in the field. She’s only won one of her six starts, but is on an upwards trajectory and presents fit and ready to fire in a field of her own kind. Brave when fifth to Fireburn last time out at huge odds in the Golden Slipper. That form was franked last weekend in the Inglis Sires’ and this is a far easier assignment. Good price too.

Percy Sykes Stakes Form Guide

The Percy Sykes Stakes form guide details crucial race data including the starting barriers, jockeys and lead-up runs of the fillies in the Group 2 sprint field. When doing the Percy Sykes Stakes form look out for runners that won their lead-up race, are drawn close to the rails at Randwick and whose record shows a win over the 1200m distance.

A link to our comprehensive Percy Sykes Stakes 2022 Form Guide will be available below the week of the race.

Percy Sykes Stakes Results
