Ladbrokes Tip: The Ranvet Stakes – Tancred Stakes is a popular Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival betting double
The HE Tancred Stakes, formerly known as The BMW, is a Group 1 race held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on a Saturday in late March at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. Offering an incredible $1.5 million in prize money the weight-for-age feature runs over 2400m and is open to horses aged three-years-old and above.
The mile and a half classic is one of two top level events on the Tancred Stakes Race Day card along with the Vinery Stud Stakes. The Tancred Stakes winner is exempt from ballot from the autumn’s richest race the Group 1 $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes as well as the Group 1 Sydney Cup run over two miles during The Championships in April.
Horses traditionally come into the Tancred Stakes field via an earlier Rosehill autumn run in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) held over 400m shorter, which from 2012- 2017 produced three winners of the then The BMW including Silent Achiever (2014) who was the last to do the double.
The latest edition of the Tancred Stakes runs on Saturday March 31, 2018 and has reverted back to its original name after BMW failed to renew their sponsorship.

- 1st: #9 SINGLE GAZE ($7)
- 2nd: #6 AUVRAY ($9.50)
- 3rd: #1 GAILO CHOP ($2.30)
Going for the mare SINGLE GAZE ($7) who is always thereabouts. She can’t run a bad race and was runner-up to Saturday’s favourite in the Ranvet Stakes last weekend. Think the step-up from 2000m to 2400m will better suit her. Can she finally win one? Time will tell, but the price is attractive. AUVRAY ($9.50) has the best track and distance stats of anything in this race and comes off the lead-up Sky High win, market mover and think he can surprise. GAILO CHOP ($2.30) leads the markets and is three-from-four this time in. Plenty of reasons he can salute again, just needs to handle the 2400m.
