2022 Ranvet Stakes Field & Betting: Verry Elleegant Odds-On To Win 12th Group 1

Chris Waller’s brilliant mare Verry Elleegant is odds-on to take her number of Group 1 wins to a dozen facing just five rivals when defending her title in the 2022 Ranvet Stakes in Sydney on Saturday.

On Golden Slipper Stakes Day last year, the star daughter of Zed backed up from a Chipping Norton Stakes win to take out the Group 1 $700,000 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) having run second in both races in 2020.

The now six-year-old looks to complete the same double 12 months on further adding to her incredible legacy.

Last year’s Melbourne Cup champion was brave second-up on a Heavy (10) in the Chipping Norton and will be better over further third-up and fit in a very winnable edition of the Ranvet.

James McDonald continues associations with the $14.6 million earner in barrier four and Verry Elleegant understandably dominates Ranvet Stakes betting at a short $1.35 quote through Ladbrokes.com.au.

With the superlative reigning champ scaring off the bulk of potential rivals, the danger is David Payne’s $5.50 second elect Montefilia in gate two.

In-form hoop Jason Collett rides the four-year-old Kermadec mare chasing her first win since the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick last October.

A genuine staying type she was fourth after that in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) down south and returned in the Chipping Norton.

There she ran seventh, albeit only two and a half-lengths off Verry Elleegant, and she has improvement going up to 2000m second-up in the rematch.

The other single-figure hope looking to rain on the turf queen’s parade at current Ranvet Stakes odds of $8 is another Chipping Norton graduate, the Hawkes Racing-trained third place-getter Angel Of Truth.

It has been a very long time between drinks for the Animal Kingdom six-year-old who hasn’t won since his Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m) victory three years ago and his price definitely looks a little short considering who he is up against again in the Ranvet.

Michael Moroney’s Victorian raider Emissary ($17) coming off a Group 2 Peter Young Stakes third to Cascadian on Blue Diamond Day; the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained The Metropolitan runner-up from the spring Entente ($21); and the rails-drawn nine-year-old Sikandarabad ($51) complete the Ranvet Stakes field and betting markets.

The 2022 Ranvet Stakes is set to run as Rosehill Race 5 at 2:40pm (AEDT) and full markets courtesy of Ladbrokes.com.au are available in full here.
