Ranvet Stakes Tips & Preview

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


A field of six line up for the first of the five Group 1 races on offer on Golden Slipper (1200m) day at Rosehill and Verry Elleegant is the dominant favourite with Unibet at the $1.35 quote ahead of Montefilia at $5.50.

The last start Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) placegetter, Angel Of Truth, is at $7.50, while Emissary ($16), Entente ($20) and Sikandarabad ($41) round out the field.


Three of the six runners come out of the Chipping Norton Stakes and it was Verry Elleegant that improved off a first up 7th in the Apollo Stakes (1400m) to ooze class in the Chipping Norton, running on and defying the challengers to score narrowly from She’s Ideel, while there as a one length gap back to Angel Of Truth.

Angel Of Truth was out for his first run since battling in the Metropolitan (2400m) last spring and led them up that day before holding on. Verry Elleegant settled midfield and thrived on the Heavy 10. Montefilia was also resuming and lacked the dash but was solid enough to finish 7th, beaten just over two lengths.

Verry Ellegant went 10.4 lengths faster than standard benchmark. At her last campaign she went 12.4 lengths faster that standard when winning over the 1600m at Randwick in the George Main Stakes (1600m) before going 13.7 lengths faster when 4th behind Incentivise at Flemington in the Turnbull Stakes (2000m).

Worth noting that she missed as a $2.10 favourite when third up that day and the likes of Young Werther and Chapada finished in front of her. Despite this, I am not sure we can make a case for the other runners.

Montefilia improved five lengths on figures when second up last spring to go 8.9 lengths faster than standard when going from the 1600m to the 2000m, finishing runner-up behind She’s Ideel in the Kingston Town Stakes before claiming the Metropolitan. She might be the danger if there is one.

Angel Of Truth’s best figures came when fresh over the 1400m last time. He could only manage 5th in the Heatherlie Handicap (1700m) when second up last time and I am not convinced about the former Australian Derby (2400m) winner.

Entente has battled in his two runs this time in but was a third up winner in the spring with that coming over the 2400m in the Colin Stephen Quality (2400m). He went 9.2 lengths faster than standard in that race but it was over the longer trip.

Emissary has been up for a while and was 3rd behind Cascadian in the recent Peter Young Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield. They went slow early on in the Caulfield Group 2 to go 2.9 lengths slower than overall standard. Cascadian has since run 5th in the Australian Cup. Suspect Sikandarabad would need to be a drastic improver to challenge these.


Verry Elleegant did have that flat run when third up last time in the Turnbull Stakes but the figures she produced were still very good and it is really hard to make a case for any contender to knock over the Melbourne Cup (3200m) winner, particularly given how well she went in the Chipping Norton. She is a champion. Montefilia is the exacta horse. To get any value, couple her in a multi with Anamoe in the Rosehill Guineas and throw a few others in from what is a ripping meeting at Rosehill.
