2012 Chipping Norton Stakes Tips & Form Guide Preview

This Saturday Sydney race fans and punters will try to forget the stormy skies and muddy grounds and head along to Warwick Farm Racecourse for a bumper day’s racing headlined by the Chipping Norton Stakes 2012, the Races.com.au team’s exclusive form guide preview and tips for which can be found below.

Herculian Prince

Herculian Prince is the Races.com.au roughie tip to take out the 2012 Chipping Norton Stakes

One of the leading mile showdowns held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, this year’s edition of the $350,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) is shaping up as a cracker with eight quality gallopers engaged.

With ballot exemptions on offer to the Chipping Norton Stakes winner into both the $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Royal Randwick on April 21 and the popular $500,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at the same track the following weekend, there is more than just one elite level title possibly on the line on Saturday.

Current Chipping Norton Stakes horse racing odds at our preferred online bookie bookmaker.com.au are led by reigning Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker paying $2.70 whose outside draw is likely to work in her favour with the Heavy-rated track.

But she suffered defeat first-up and so there is every chance a longer-priced hopeful could score an upset including the Chris Waller-trained Shoot Out or market mover Trusting.

So where do you go to uncover the best bets to place on the Chipping Norton?

Having studied the Warwick Farm race six form guide, betting history and statistics carefully the Races.com.au crew have done the hard work for you and come up with the need to know facts on the race as well as our insider tips.
