All Aged Stakes Tips & Preview 2022

All Aged Stakes Tips & Preview

Looking for All Aged Stakes tips and best bets? We dissect times and form to find the winner of the 2022 All Aged Stakes at Randwick.

Its is tight at the top of the betting market for the All Aged Stakes at ladbrokes with Mo’unga, Forbidden Love and In The Congo sharing favouritism at the $4.80 quote ahead of the farewell horse, Tofane at $9.

Cascadian is at $12, heading Ellsberg and the last start Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) winner, Nimalee, who are both at $13. Sierra Sue ($15), Overpass ($16) and Shelby Sixty-six ($17) head the rest.


Plenty of interest with the 1400m as the likes of the TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) runners clash with some of those that come out of the Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Forbidden Love, Ellsberg, Cascadian and Laws Of Indices are the four that are dropping down in distance after running in the Doncaster on Day One of The Championships.

That was taken out by Mr Brightside and it was Forbidden Love that sat outside Ellsberg up front at what was a solid clip. Forbidden Love stuck on for 4th, going 10.6 lengths faster than standard benchmark. Her peak figure came over the 1400m earlier this preparation when taking out the Guy Walter Stakes at the track and trip, going 14.4 lengths faster than standard.

That came on a Heavy 10 but we might see something in the Soft range on Saturday as we finally see some nice weather in Sydney for a Saturday meeting.

Ellsberg comes into this fourth up off an 11 week break and was a Rosehill winner in weaker class at the same stage of his last preparation. Cascadian was wide with cover before producing the fastest last 400m in the Doncaster, running 9th.

Overpass and Shelby Sixtysix are among three emergencies for the All Aged Stakes and come out of the TJ Smith Stakes, as well as Zoutori. That trio did appear to be outclassed. Overpass ran 5th, going nine lengths faster than standard, while Shelby Sixtysix pulled up with mild lameness after a tough run. Wouldn’t be writing him off yet.

Best last start benchmark figures belong to the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Shout The Bar, who comes up from Melbourne after taking out the Sunline Stakes (1600m) at her last start. She went 13.5 lengths faster than standard benchmark in that race, just shading the 13.1 lengths faster that Nimalee produced last week when claiming the Queen Of The Turf.

Mo’unga creates a stack of interest. He might just have the class on this lot but has not been seen since finishing runner-up behind Sierra Sue when resuming the Futurity Stakes. The Anabel Neasham-trained galloper went 10.7 lengths faster than standard that day and was around that mark in all of his runs in the spring.

Sierra Sue has since finished an unlucky 7th in the All-Star Mile. The form out of that race has been excellent. Tofane was 8th that day and drops back to the 1400m. She loves the trip and is a genuine chance to farewell us with another Group 1 win. Cascadian finished ahead of that pair in 5th before tackling the Doncaster.

A couple of others to consider are In The Congo and Hungry Heart. In The Congo was 3rd behind Shelby Sixty-six in the Galaxy (1100m) before landing in the runner-up position in the Arrowfield Sprint (1200m) last weekend.

Hungry Heart has been avoiding the wet tracks that have been dished up and seems to be a regular among the scratchings on Raceday. Her best is good enough but does she have the fitness?


I’m a big fan of Mo’unga but I am just not sure about the gap in between runs, while I don’t mind the All Star Mile runners as the form out of that has been rock solid with the likes of Zaaki, Mr Brightside and I’m Thunderstruck all performing well in runs since. On that, we can just about make a case for Tofane in her final race. This is the first time she has dropped back from the 1600m to the 1400m in a preparation but her best figures in the past two years came at a similar stage of her preparation when winning this race two years ago, going 14 lengths faster than standard benchmark. Sierra Sue boasts some excellent figures over the 1400m throughout her career as well. She is fourth up and when dropping from the 1600m to the 1400m in the spring she claimed the Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield, going more than 13 lengths faster than standard. That duo look the value for mine.
