CHIPPING NORTON STAKES
Track: Randwick | Distance: 1600m | Condition: WFA | Rail Position: True | Track Condition: Heavy 9 | Prizemoney: $600,000
Rain forecast for Friday & Saturday. Difficult to predict how the track will end up, but likely to be anywhere between a Soft 6 and a Heavy 9.
Winx won this race 4 years in a row, whilst Te Akau Shark and Verry Elleegant have won it the past 2 years.
SPEED MAP RACING TIPS
Slow tempo expected here. Maximal and Kolding may lob in front. Mount Popa, Think It Over, Duais and Top Ranked can race handy. Montefilia, Colette, Verry Elleegant, She’s Ideel & Angel Of Truth likely lob back of midfield. Hungry Heart & Stockman usually race right out the back.
KEY RUNNERS + RACING TIPS
1. Think It Over
G1 winner who has won 5 of his last 6 starts and over $3.3m prizemoney. Won the Apollo Stakes by 3L first up. The big query here is the wet track. Certainly races best on dry so risking here
3. Top Ranked
Ran 3rd beaten 1.9L in The Hunter in first Aus run. Did win a G3 mile race at Haydock on a heavy track so wet shouldn’t be an issue. Is first up here
5. Angel Of Truth
Loves wet tracks and does have a good fresh up record. If the track is a real heavy tester, he can surprise and at least place at huge odds.
Loves it wet and although G1 WFA is a big step up, he will be one who relishes the conditions and can run into a placing at odds.
8. Verry Elleegant
Melbourne Cup winner, who won this race last year. Races very well on wet tracks so looks the one to beat here
Another who loves wet tracks and was a close 2nd in this race last year. Won the G1 Empire Rose over a mile in the Spring and was a good 2nd first up. Strong chance.
Think either Verry Elleegant or Colette win.
Top Ranked & Stockman can also run placings here.
TOP 5 SELECTIONS
8 – Verry Elleegant
9 – Colette
5 – Angel Of Truth
3 – Top Ranked
6 – Stockman
No official bets given my ratings are fairly aligned with the market. Angel Of Truth worth a small place bet at huge odds. Think It Over the potential lay if the track stays Heavy.
