Recent Craven Plate results

  • Tyler Schiller and the Hawkes team combined with Zeyrek ($9.50) putting his head down to score victory in the Group 3 Craven Plate (1800m) at Randwick. The six-year-old son of Sea The Stars was no match for Group 1 company in the Group 1 King Charles III Stakes (1600m) last start on October 14, but has bounced back supremely getting to a more suitable trip at Group 3 level. Tyler Schiller had no choice but to drag back towards the rear of the field from barrier eight, but was aided by a moderately run affair, with the Annabel Neasham-trained Numerian ($3.90) trying to scoot clear at the top of the straight. As the leader faded Skyman ($26.00) cruised to the lead, before the swooping pair of Zeyrek and Renaissance Woman ($4.60) sat down to fight out the finish. It was Zeyrek getting the verdict in the photo finish, grabbing a much-deserved victory at the fifth time of asking this campaign.
  • Cascadian (-142.86) has justified his odds on quote by taking out the 2022 Group 3 Craven Plate at Randwick on Saturday. After settling at the back of the field, James McDonald sweated on a gap to appear and when it did, his gelding let down with a strong turn of foot to take the lead and kick clear in the final 100m. Just Folk (+1000) and Promitto (+1200) battled on for second and third, respectively.
  • After claiming the same race 12 months ago, Think It Over (-133.33) has claimed the Group 3 Craven Plate again, but in emphatic style as the odds-on race favourite. Nash Rawiller rode his gelding as though it was the best in the race, and made sure he stayed out of trouble before pushing the button at the 200m mark to clear out for a big win. Sky Lab (+1300) tried to go with the winner and ran into second, while Lion’s Roar (+900) stuck on for third after leading the field up.
  • Nash Rawiller has given Think It Over (+1400) a very intelligent rails hugging ride to claim the Group 3 Craven Plate at Randwick. After the leader Quintessa (+750) rolled off the rail at the top of the home straight, it gave Rawiller plenty of room to move and when he took the lead, the son of So You Think pushed through and took the lead with 150m to go. Nettoyer (+1700) and Vanna Girl (+450) battled on for second and third, respectively.
  • A dominant front-running ride from Tommy Berry has seen Happy Clapper (+270) take out the Group 3 Craven Plate at Randwick. As the field rounded the home bend, it was easy to see that the son of Teofilo was going much better than Stampede (+550) who was under hard riding, while Berry still had a vice-like grip on his mount. The challengers came from behind, with Tally (+1200) and Life Less Ordinary (+550) making their runs together, but they would come up short and fill the placings behind the tough winner.
