Ranvet Stakes 2018

Saturday March 24, 2018

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 $420,000 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 BMW, Queen Elizabeth Stakes and or the Sydney Cup over the two miles.

The latest edition of the Ranvet Stakes ran on Saturday March 24, 2018 .

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

Favourites in Ranvet Stakes betting have an imposing record over the past 10 odd years with eight saluting from 2005 – 2018 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 hasn’t attracted more than 13 runners since McGinty won the 1984 edition defeating 14 rivals. Under 10 horses started in the 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.

2018 Ranvet Stakes Field

The official Ranvet Stakes Final Field for 2018 will be announced on the Wednesday of race week leading up to Golden Slipper Stakes Day and published in full below.

The 2018 Ranvet Stakes Field features nine hopefuls with the money firmly on the Darren Weir-trained French import in gate four Gailo Chop to return to winning form after a lead-up second as the beaten favourite in the Australian Cup. His shock last start conqueror Harlem is after the Australian Cup – Ranvet Stakes double for the first time since Manighar (2012) and is at double-figures to do so in another upset.

Update: The Ranvet Stakes 2018 Field is down to only eight runners after the withdrawal of The Taj Mahal (5).

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 – 2018.

  • 1st: #1 GAILO CHOP ($1.85)
  • 2nd: #2 CLASSIC UNIFORM ($13)
  • 3rd: #8 SINGLE GAZE ($5)

Odds-on favourite and Darren Weir’s GAILO CHOP ($1.85) really does look hard to beat. Very small field for his Sydney debut and can atone for the close second as the beaten favourite in the Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington. Roomy Rosehill track on Heavy going will suit, he’s undefeated in the mud (3:3-0-0) and has a 50% winning strike rate over 2000m. Cannot go past. CLASSIC UNIFORM ($13) adds a bit of value and also gets through the mud well (6:1-2-1). Winning form at the 2000m over Happy Clapper in the spring and comes off a third to the world’s best Winx at a mile. Better here third-up with the extra metres and Heavy track. SINGLE GAZE ($5) cannot run a bad race. She’s got Group 1 winning form at this track / distance, has placed in the wet and was under two lengths off them when unplaced in the Australian Cup. Livewire hope again.

Ranvet Stakes Form Guide

The Ranvet Stakes form guide shows punters all the essential information from the barrier positions to the jockeys and trainers of each runner in the field.

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).

Ranvet Stakes Form Facts

  • In the 14 years from 2005 – 2018 eight Ranvet Stakes winners jumped favourite for the punters
  • Silent Achiever (2014) is the only mare to top the Ranvet Stakes results since Tuesday Joy (2008)
  • No four-year-old has won the Ranvet Stakes since Tuesday Joy in 2008
  • Six-year-olds have dominated the Ranvet Stakes winners’ list over the past decade
  • The only winner from a double-digit Ranvet Stakes barrier since Better Loosen Up (11 of 13 in 1990) was Theseo (12 of 12 in 2010)
