2022 Epsom Handicap Nominations and Entries

Nominations for the 2022 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) will be available on September 5, 2022. 

Below is our assessment of the 2021 edition of the race:

Nominations for the 2021 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) closed on September 6 with 90 entries received for the $1.5 million Randwick feature.

One of the main entries for the Epsom Handicap will be four-year-old gelding Mo’unga who comes off a last start second behind Incentivise in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m).

Prior to that run, the Annabel Neasham-trained son of Savabeel was victorious in the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) defeating Verry Elleegant.

Mo’unga has won five races from 11 starts heading towards the Epsom.

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott prepare five-year-old gelding Riodini. A winner of four races, Riodini has been close at his last two starts with second placings against Think It Over and Verry Elleegant; the latter came in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m).

Riodini competed in last year’s Epsom Handicap where he ran third, beaten 1.2 lengths by Probabeel and Funstar.

Hungry Heart is getting better with each run as the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) winner looks for her first victory this prep – she was unplaced in the Winx Stakes and George Main Stakes.

See below for the full list of nominations.
