The weight-for-age $400,000 Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) is scheduled to run as Rosehill Race 6 at 3:30pm (AEST) this year with the field down to 12 hopefuls following the early withdrawal of Single who was drawn in barrier six.

It is shaping up as a tight two-horse betting battle for the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival classic too with the current top elect in the Ranvet Stakes odds being the ultra-consistent Fiveandahalfstar at $3.

Going in with the weight advantage as a three-year-old with only 54.5kg the reigning Victoria Derby champ comes off three close second place finishes most recent behind Super Cool when a nose away in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) on March 9.

The next best fancied to win the Ranvet Stakes is then Kiwi mare Silent Achiever ($3.70) coming off a fourth in the Chipping Norton before the defending Ranvet Stakes winner Manighar rounds out the single-figure fancies at a quote of $7.50.

So are these three shorties in the markets the ones to lock in for your 2013 Ranvet Stakes trifecta?

Or is there value to be had backing one of the longer-priced chances such as last start Auckland Cup winner Sangster ($12)?

To help you uncover the winning Ranvet Stakes bets below are the must know facts on the race based on the form guide, historical data and statistical facts.
