Ranvet Stakes 2020

Saturday March 21, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: The Chipping Norton Stakes produces more Ranvet Stakes winners than any other lead-up race

The Ranvet Stakes is one of five elite level Group 1 races run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Golden Slipper Day in March during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

While the meeting’s feature race is the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) for two-year-olds, plenty of talented gallopers run across the card including in the Ranvet Stakes field. The event is contested over 2000m under weight-for-age conditions and offers a juicy $700,000 in total prize money including $402,000 for the Ranvet Stakes winner.

The traditional Ranvet Stakes lead-up is the Chipping Norton Stakes and the double was last achieved by Contributer (2015).

The Ranvet Stakes winner is also exempt from ballot for a number of other upcoming features during The Championships in April with many backing up in the Tancred Stakes (formerly The BMW), Queen Elizabeth Stakes and or the Sydney Cup over the two miles. Avilius (2019) was the last galloper to complete the Ranvet Stakes – Tancred Stakes double.

The latest edition of the Ranvet Stakes ran on Saturday March 21, 2020 and was won by the William Haggas-trained UK raider Addeybb.

Ranvet Stakes Odds & Betting

Ranvet Stakes odds are usually dominated by proven weight-for-age horses with winning form at least up to 1600m. Horses that finished first or second in their lead-up runs also feature up the top half of Ranvet Stakes betting each year especially last start winners.

Of 14 the Ranvet Stakes winners from 2006 – 2020 all but four finished either first or second in their lead-up run. The Chipping Norton Stakes produced six of those winners with another five coming out of the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m), most recently Gailo Chop (2nd in 2018) and Avilius (5th in 2019), run over the same distance at Flemington in Melbourne the week before.

Favourites in Ranvet Stakes betting have an imposing record over the past decade or so with nine saluting from 2005 – 2020 – most recently Avilius ($4.40 in 2019) – including six on the trot from 2005 – 2009. In that time there were also a number of standout upsets with Zavite scoring at 100/1 in 2011 and Foreteller jumping at 30/1 for his 2013 win.

Gai Waterhouse-trained horses are also prominent in the Ranvet Stakes markets as she has prepared seven winners since 1996 including four consecutive champions from 2007 – 2010.

Ranvet Stakes Field

The Ranvet Stakes field traditionally attracts under its capacity number of starters and hadn’t attracted more than 13 runners since McGinty won the 1984 edition defeating 14 rivals until 2019 when Avilius beat home 13 other runners. Under 10 horses started in the 2020 (7), 2018 (8), 2017 (7), 2016 (9), 2015 (7) and 2014 (9) Ranvet Stakes fields and favourites have dominated the race over the past decade.

Horses come into the Ranvet Stakes field via a number of different autumn lead-ups but the traditional preparatory run is in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm Racecourse three weeks earlier.

Ranvet Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race with the final field of acceptances and barrier draw out on the Wednesday.

Ranvet Stakes Tips

Ranvet Stakes tips favour in-form weight-for-age horses that finished first or second in the Chipping Norton Stakes in the lead-up.

Tipping the Ranvet Stakes favourite has proved a goldmine for punters over the past two decades with the shortest priced in the markets coming up trumps more often than not. The weight-for-age conditions of the race favour experienced performers and Ranvet Stakes tips often sway towards horses aged five or over with just two horses younger than five winning from 2006 – 2020.

  • To Win: #5 Verry Elleegant ($4.40)

No doubt the international visitor commands respect, but like this race for Chris Waller’s multiple Group 1 winning mare Verry Elleegant especially if it is a rain-affected track. The Zed four-year-old is two-from-two at Rosehill having won the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes – Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes double here in the wet last March. She took out the ATC Oaks after that and is a proven wet track performer undefeated on Heavy going. Third-up is ready to peak and is on the improve after the close second to gun Kiwi Te Akau Shark in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) last start. Conditions suit, small field, wet track, up in distance.

Looking out for Gai Waterhouse’s name in the Ranvet Stakes form guide is always a good idea as she has prepared more Ranvet Stakes winners than any other trainer, most recently dual champion Theseo (2009-10).

Mares also have a solid record against the boys and are worth doing the Ranvet Stakes form of with four saluting between 2003 – 2015 including Silent Achiever (2014).
