Tattersall’s Tiara Tips & Preview 2022

Tattersall's Tiara Tips & Preview

Looking for Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) tips and best bets? We dissect times and form to find the winner of the 2022 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm.


The final Group 1 race of the season is the Tattersall’s Tiara for the fillies and mares at Eagle Farm on Saturday June 25 and the early market with Palmerbet sees Annavisto that holds favouritism with Palmerbet at the $5 quote, just ahead of the last start Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) winner, Snapdancer at $6.50.

The consistent Away Game is in the double figures at $10. Kiku and Startantes are at $11, while Shout The Bar is $12. Nudge, Brooklyn Hustle and Atishu are all $13, while Wandabaa heads the rest at $18.


Formlines are many and varied as we come to the end of the season and the race favourite, Annavisto, resumes off a two-month break. The Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr-trained galloper was a dominant winner at her last fresh run, taking out the Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) at Flemington in March by three lengths.

This is harder but the daughter of Reliable Man went a a whopping 15 lengths faster than standard that day and it is hard to ignore her first up credentials that read as three wins and a runner-up from four starts. Only Away Game has produced a better figure this year when going 16.5 lengths faster than standard behind Marabi in the Oakleigh Plate.

After her fresh run, Annavisto was then slightly disappointing at Newcastle at Group 2 level before finishing runner-up in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf (1600m) at Randwick behind Nimalee, going 11.4 lengths faster than standard, which are the best last start figures of any horse in the race.

Snapdancer is second favourite and is another that is without a run in Queensland in recent times. She claimed the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville off an eight-week break at her most recent start, going 10 lengths faster that standard.

The Maher/Eustace galloper has performed well in the clockwise direction in the past, taking out the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares race over the 1300m at the Gold Coast in January before claiming the Triscay Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.

Startantes and Brooklyn Hustle come out of the Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) and should be better suited against their own sex. Startantes was 5th that day, while Brooklyn Hustle again posted the fastest last 200m when 6th. She just needs a hot tempo.

Away Game is another that comes out of a Group 1 race and got too far back in the run from barrier 14 when 10th behind Apache Chase in the Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm on May 28.

Hard to knock her but she does seem to lack the killer punch and seemed to have every chance when runner-up behind Snapdancer in the Robert Sangster at her run prior.

Seven contenders come out of the Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) that was taken out by Palaisipan on June 11. The Chris Munce mare went six lengths faster than standard and might need to set a personal best to challenge some of those higher in the market. Hard to make a case for those that finished behind her.

Kiku went just 0.9 lengths faster than standard when claiming the National Classic (1600m) at Eagle Farm. Those figures were mainly due to the slow early tempo and she settled handy in what was a sprint in the run home.

Four others come out of that race including Nudge and the Chris Waller-traiend Atishu, who was posted deep before running 3rd.

Shout The Bar is an interesting runner and comes in off a 10 week break. She failed on the Heavy in the All Aged Stakes (1400m) back in April but was dominant at Group 2 level in Melbourne prior to that, while she has produced some solid figures when fresh in the past.


Pretty keen on the race favourite, Annavisto, in the final Group 1 of the season. At her past two first up runs she has smashed the clock to go 15 lengths faster than standard when winning at Flemington earlier this year, while she went 12.5 lengths faster at her campaign prior when runner-up behind Turaath at Caulfield. Her last run prior to the break proves that she can race well in this direction, while she performs well on Good tracks, which are the conditions we can expect come Saturday. Rachel King retains the ride and will look to fly the gates. A number of these like to settle back and there is not massive amounts of speed inside of Annavisto with Snapdancer and Vangelic among a couple inside of her that like to go forward. If King can find a spot early on without burning too much fuel then I suspect the pair will be very hard to hold out at the business end.
