Looking for Inglis Sires tips and best bets? We dissect times and form to find the winner of the 2024 Inglis Sires at Randwick.


The two-year-olds line up for Group 1 glory in the Inglis Sires’ and it is Storm Boy that is rated a $2.80 chance of turning the tables on Lady Of Camelot ($4.50) with NEDS after running 3rd behind that horse in the Golden Slipper (1200m) a fortnight ago. 

Manaal and Traffic Warden are both at $6, while the Golden Slipper runner-up, Coleman, is at $9. Anode, Fearless and Prost are all at $15, while Duvana ($15) and Vianarra ($101) are the roughies in the 10-horse field. 


Six runners come out of the Golden Slipper and I suspect the winner comes out of the world’s richest race for two-year-olds. Lady Of Camelot drew perfectly in barrier 5 that day but was held up early in the straight before gaining the split at the 200m and edging out Coleman, who was game in defeat. 

The Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott filly went 7.6 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is the best last start figure of any runner in this race. Storm Boy jumped as a $2.60 favourite but was slowly away and had to weave a passage in the straight. The stablemate of Lady Of Camelot finished 3rd and was beaten just under two lengths. 

Traffic Warden was dropping from the 1400m having claimed the VRC Sires Produce at Flemington at his start prior and was a hard-luck story. After settling worse than midfield, he was held up from the 400m to the 250m before running on. 

Manaal was a massive eye-catcher. She settled second last and produced the fastest last 200m, going 11.16 over that split to finish just over two lengths away. Prost is the other runner to come out of the Golden Slipper and was an inconclusive 13th as he was never really clear. 

Traffic Warden and Anode are the only runners in the field to have raced over the 1400m. Anode is on the one-week back-up after finishing runner-up in the Ballieu behind Linebacker last weekend, going 5.1 lengths faster than standard benchmark. 

Fearless is one of just two last start winners in the field and took out a lowly Maiden at Newcastle on March 21. However, he did run 6th in the Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) prior to that, producing the equal fastest last 200m. The form from the Blue Diamond has held up via the likes of Lady Of Camelot, Traffic Warden and Coleman. He finished ahead of the latter two in that race.


We are likely to end up with a Heavy track at Randwick and there is little wet-track form to go off. Market moves will be a solid guide. There is a smaller field for this than what the youngsters were presented with in the Golden Slipper and they should all get their chance. I have loved what Manaal has done so far in her career. She has won two of four with one of those victories coming on the Soft and will be saved for one last crack at them. Anode is a likely leader, while Lady Of Camelot and Storm Boy will put enough pressure on to ensure there is some degree of tempo in the race. Look for the daughter of Tassort to run over the top of them late in the piece.
