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 $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 that year’s subsequent Melbourne Cup champion Verry Elleegant (2021).
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, while UK raider Addeybb backed-up from his 2020 Ranvet victory to take out the Queen Elizabeth Stakes next-up.
In 2021 the same two horses from the previous year ran the Ranvet Stakes quinella in a thriller with Verry Elleegant reversing the order with her win over Addeybb.
The following year, Verry Elleegant returned as the odds-on favourite only to run second to Montefilia in an upset while Angel Of Truth ran third for the second year in a row.
The latest edition of the Ranvet Stakes ran on Saturday March 19, 2022 and saw the David Payne-trained Montefilia ($9.50) score a two-length upset over the beaten favourite Verry Elleegant ($1.24).

The Chipping Norton Stakes produced eight 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.
In 2022 Montefilia improved on a seventh in the Chipping Norton to turn the tables on Verry Elleegant and post an upset win in the Ranvet Stakes at $9.50.

Chris Waller’s Melbourne Cup heroine is impossible not to back this weekend to take her elite level tally up to 12. She was excellent saluting in the Chipping Norton last time out and presents fit third-up and ready to fire over an even more suitable distance. Class lacking in her five rivals and nothing but bad luck will see this queen beaten in her title defence.
