George Ryder Stakes 2014 Form Guide Analysis

The richest race on the Rosehill Guineas Day program in Sydney this Saturday is the 2014 George Ryder Stakes, the team’s comprehensive form and betting preview for which can be found right here.

Headlining proceedings as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:00pm (AEST), the 15-horse field for this year’s $1 million Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) is a beauty.

George Ryder Stakes odds are currently led by three of Chris Waller’s four chances in the race, the $3 favourite being his star mare Red Tracer.

Drawn in barrier 13 the six-year-old daughter of Dane Shadow is the market mover and out  to improve on a luckless third when nearly falling at the start of the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) a fortnight ago.

Another dual winner from Waller’s stables is then the $6 second fancy, last start Chipping Norton champ Boban ($6) before the reigning Doncaster Mile champ Sacred Falls ($7) rounds out the top three.

But can Waller dominate again and score his fourth George Ryder Stakes win in five years?

To save you time scrolling over the George Ryder Stakes form guide and betting history we’ve done the hard work for you and come up with the below must know facts on the weight-for-age classic.

2014 George Ryder Stakes Form Facts & Betting Stats

  • Last year’s George Ryder Stakes winner was the Gai Waterhouse-trained Pierro who won the race on the back of wins in the Hobartville Stakes and Canterbury Stakes, jumped from barrier 7 (of 12) and was ridden by Nash Rawiller
