Value with Niwot and Scarlett Lady Shortens – 2012 Ranvet Stakes Betting

With headline grabbing horses Shoot Out, Manighar and Southern Speed at the top end of the 2012 Ranvet Stakes betting market, the likes of outside hope Niwot have been largely ignored in the lead up to the Group 1 feature race.

Currently paying $21.00 at, the seven-year-old gelding from the Hawkes family stable provides value for the punters in a race that will test a large 14-horse field of stayers.


Niwot provides value for the punters in the 2012 Ranvet Stakes

One thing that won’t be a problem for the experienced horse is the distance as he has recorded five of his eight victories at distances of 2000 metres or more.

Wayne Hawkes, who trains the gelding along with brother Michael and father John, is brimming with confidence ahead of the $400,000 race and said Niwot is in career best form.

“He is low flying and that’s all you can ask, he is just going gangbusters,” he said.

The son of Galileo has so far struggled to rediscover his form from last Spring, only managing two fifth-place efforts in two starts in 2012.

He caught the attention of plenty last year when he won the Lexus Stakes before backing up three days later to finish a respectable eighth in the Melbourne Cup.

The Ranvet Stakes will be the impressive four-year-old’s first hit out on Australian soil this year and she is coming off two straight wins including the New Zealand Stakes last start.

Scarlett Lady currently sits as fourth favourite in the betting market behind Shoot Out ($3.50), Manighar ($4.80) and Southern Speed ($5.00).

With the market now open and the Ranvet Stakes only two days away, head to to pick your winner!
