Ranvet Stakes 2012 Preview

Tomorrow’s 2012 Ranvet Stakes stands as one of two Group 1 events on a bumper Rosehill Gardens card and the Races.com.au team is here to give you all the facts that matter heading into the race.

The $400,000 event is run over 2000 metres and a quality field of 14 horses will be lined up to chase top honours when the race jumps at 3:30pm tomorrow.

The Favourite

Chris Waller trained gelding Shoot Out is the current $3.50 bookmaker.com.au favourite and the talented horse will be looking to produce a rare double after winning the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes two-weeks-ago.

The five-year-old two-time Group 1 winner has been in sensational form this year with the Chipping Norton win following a third-place in the Expressway Stakes and a runner-up effort in the Apollo Stakes.

Shoot Out is a highly successful gelding having recorded eight wins from 27 starts and collected more than $2.1 million in prize money.

The Rivalry

Australian Cup quinella Manighar ($4.80) and Southern Speed ($5.00) will get another chance to go head-to-head on Saturday and will have an early look at each other as they will start side by side in barriers three and four.

Southern Speed will be making her Sydney debut and will be looking to turn the tables on French gelding Manighar after getting beaten by a nose in the Australian Cup on March 10.

Since October last year, the two stayers have raced against each other three times with one victory going to Southern Speed when she won the famous Caulfield Cup last year.

The Quiet Achiever

All the talk so far leading up to the Ranvet Stakes has been about the top three horses but a horse with a lesser profile is a big chance of upsetting the favourites this Saturday.

New Zealand mare Scarlett Lady ($6.00) will be having her first run on Australian soil in 2012 and is coming off a win in the New Zeland Stakes.

The winner of eight of 14 starts is a highly promising mare and last won in Australia when she took the Group 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm last June.

The Outsiders

Such a high quality field is running in this year’s Ranvet Stakes, meaning there are no certainties come race day.

Rangirangdoo is paying $12.00 at bookmaker.com.au but the New Zealand gelding is a highly successful horse who has 10 wins from 24 starts including two Group 1 victories.

Former Emirates Stakes winner Wall Street offers plenty of value at $34.00 and the New Zealand horse showed promise when finishing third in the Blamey Stakes at Flemington last start.

The Long Shot

When New Zealand nine-year-old Zavite surprised everyone and crossed the line first in last year’s Ranvet Stakes, he was untouched by the punters at $101.00.

If the Anthony Cummings trained gelding can pull off a miracle and go back-to-back, he will again be doing it without any love in the betting markets and is currently paying a huge $101.00 at bookmaker.com.au.

The Ranvet Stakes is the sixth race in what is a huge day of racing at Rosehill tomrrow.
