Inglis Sires’ Tips & Preview 2022

Inglis' Sires Tips & Preview

Looking for Inglis Sires’ tips and best bets? We dissect times and form to find the winner of the 2022 Inglis Sires’ at Randwick.


It is the Golden Slipper (1200m) winner, Fireburn, that has been installed as the $2.70 favourite for the Inglis’ Sires with NEDS after the barrier draw ahead of Showcourt and She’s Extreme (both $8). The Golden Slipper 4th placegetter, Daumier, is at $9, while Magic ($11) and Letsrollthedice ($13) are next in line.

Millane is at $19, while Shalatin ($21), Warby ($21), Brosnan ($26), Man In The Mirror ($26) and Counttheheadlights ($34) are roughies. Cricket score odds are available for Wealthy Investor, who is at $101.


History is with Fireburn, Daumier and She’s Extreme as 14 of the past 22 winners of the Inglis Sires have come out of the Golden Slipper including Anamoe last year and Kings Legacy in 2020. Anamoe was runner-up in the Slipper before going one better, while Kings Legacy was 9th.

Figures for the two that come out of the Slipper certain stack up with Fireburn going 9.1 lengths faster than standard to take out the worlds richest two-year-old race. She was given a peach of a ride by Brendan Avdulla and came off the pace, while Daumier settled handy, sticking on to go down four lengths in 4th position. She’s Extreme was one of the hard luck stories. She was supported in the betting that day but was never really clear in the straight before finishing 7th.

On figures, it is hard to make a case for those that do not come out of the Golden Slipper but there is scope for some of the juveniles to improve off what they have shown so far.

Counttheheadlights botched the start in the Blue Diamond before running a solid 8th behind Daumier in the Caulfield Group 1 and should be suited by the step up to the 1400m. He went 3.6 lengths faster than standard benchmark that day.

Millane has had the one start for a win at Flemington over the 1000m, going 3.3 lengths faster than standard. Not sure about the jump to the 1400m at this stage but he draws well in barrier 3.

Three runners come out of the VRC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m), which was taken out by Let’srollthedice at Flemington on March 12. Man In The Mirror was runner-up, while Brosnan was 6th that day. The winner was strong to the line that day, coming from back in the field, while Man In The Mirror settled handy before sticking on. Brosnan never really had much room and did well to finish 4th, beaten one length. The winner went one length faster than standard benchmark.

Shalatin and Showcourt come out of the Todman Stakes (1200m), finishing runner-up and 4th respectively. Figures out of that race are moderate but Showcourt was a hard luck story and has attracted support in the early betting here.


Plenty of unknowns with the youngsters stepping out to the 1400m and some of those with scope but have to go with the Golden Slipper winner, Fireburn. She is four from five now and overcame a massive check in the middle stages of the Golden Slipper to win running away from them. Figures from the Slipper are much superior to what any other horse in this race has produced, while history is also on her side.
