Ranvet Stakes 2017

March 18, 2017

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 $3.5 million Group 1 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 March 18, 2017.

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 12 Ranvet Stakes winners from 2006 – 2017 all but three finished either first or second in their lead-up run. The Chipping Norton Stakes produced six of those winners with another three coming out of the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) 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 seven saluting from 2005 – 2017 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 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 – 2017.

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 13 years from 2005 – 2017 seven 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)

Ranvet Stakes Results

The Ranvet Stakes results and finishing order are decided on Golden Slipper Day in March each autumn and show not only that year’s winner but also the winning margin and time.
