2012 Ranvet Stakes – Outside Hopes not to be Written Off

With the likes of Chipping Norton Stakes winner Shoot Out and Australian Cup champion Manighar at the top end of the 2012 Ranvet Stakes betting markets, one could be forgiven for thinking an upset is an unlikely prospect.

However, with a 14-horse field named and $400,000 Group 1 honours up for grabs, the stayer’s race (2000m) is anything but a foregone conclusion.

Among the outside hopes are Bart Cummings trained international horses Illo ($18.00 – bookmaker.com.au) and Precedence ($31.00).


Precedence is one of the outside hopes in the 2012 Ranvet Stakes

Illo may have finished eighth in the Australian Cup but the German import is a quality stayer and finished second to Lucas Cranach in the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes in late February.

New Zealand gelding Precendence finished fourth in the Australian Cup and has won six times from 36 outings.

Punters are likely to shy away from the six-year-old who has not won since October 2010 but jockey Michael Rodd, who rode the gelding in the Australian Cup, said any Bart Cummings horse should not be written off.

“He always pops up Bart, so you can never write him off,” he said.

“He had things go his way [in the Australian Cup]. The tempo was really good and I was able to get him to the outside and get him rolling into the race and he hit the line really well,” Rodd said.

“He surprised me how strong he was over the last 100 metres.”

The son of Zabeel has drawn a wide barrier (11) but Rodd is not worried by the start.

“I’m not too concerned. He is better with a bit of galloping room,” he said.

“He will just go back from that draw I imagine and we’ll just have to work out when to make his run.”

Another outside chance in the feature event is the Michael Moroney trained Wall Street ($31.00)

The seven-year-old New Zealand horse is coming off a third-place effort in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes and boasts an impressive resume that includes Group 1 honours in the 2010 Emirates Stakes.

The 2012 Ranvet Stakes is the sixth race on a bumper Rosehill card this weekend that also includes the Group 1 Coolmore Classic and some exciting Golden Slipper lead up races.
