Southern Speed Not to be Overlooked – Ranvet Stakes 2012

Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed has a chance to avenge her Australian Cup defeat tomorrow when she takes on Manighar in the 2012 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.

Southern Speed

Southern Speed is third favourite to win the Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill tomorrow

The four-year-old lost by a nose to the French gelding in the Australian Cup two weeks ago and gets her chance to take revenge over the same 2000 metre distance when she lines up on the inside of Manighar in barrier three.

Southern Speed has been in decent form so far this year but will have to beat a high class field to win the Group 1 event including Chipping Norton Stakes winner Shoot Out.

The Southern Image mare won her first-up race in January’s John Dillon Stakes before running second to champion sprinter Black Caviar in the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield.

She then produced her worst run this year (fifth) in the Peter Young Stakes before coming agonisingly close to a second-ever Group 1 victory in the Australian Cup.

She will be ridden by regular jockey Craig Williams on Saturday when she attempts to score top billings in the $400,000 feature race.
