Chipping Norton Stakes winner Shoot Out is the early favourite ahead of Saturday’s Group 1 $400,000 2012 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens.
The Chris Waller trained gelding is currently paying $3.50 at bookmaker.com.au and his favouritism comes on the back of some excellent form in 2012.
Apart from the Chipping Norton win, the five-year-old finished third in the Expressway Stakes at Rosehill and second behind Rain Affair in the Apollo Stakes.
He will come out of a mid-field barrier (8) with experienced Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman in the saddle when he attempts to score back to back Group 1 victories on Saturday.
Australian Cup winner Manighar is next back in the betting at $4.80 and he too has been in excellent form.
The french gelding commenced his 2012 campaign with a win in the TS Carlyon Cup and finished third in the Peter Young Stakes before his Australian Cup victory.
Not far behind Manighar is Southern Speed ($5.00 bookmaker.com.au) who will be looking to exact revenge on his French rival after finishing second by a nose in the Australian Cup on March 10.
Slightly further back in the bookmaker.com.au Ranvet Stakes market is New Zealand mare Scarlett Lady who is fresh off a win in the New Zealand Stakes.
The four-year-old is at home over the Ranvet length of 2000 metres, having recorded three of her eight career victories at the distance.
Former Doncaster Mile champion and two time Group 1 winner Rangirangdoo provides some value for the punters and is currently being offered at $11.00.
The seven-year-old showed some promise when finishing fourth in the Chipping Norton Stakes following some horrific form earlier this year where he recorded back to back ninth-place finishes.
Just behind Rangirangdoo is the John Thompson trained horse Trusting ($13.00) who is chasing a first ever Group 1 win.
Four time Group 1 winning gelding Wall Street is one of the outsiders at $31.00 but is coming off a respectable third-place effort in the Blamey Stakes behind Green Moon and Pied A Terre.
Last year’s winner Zavite is the long-shot outsider for the 2012 Ranvet Stakes and it will again be a remarkable upset if the $101.00 chance can take top honours.
