Location: Rosehill Racecourse
Prize Money: $1,000,000
Distance: 2000m

The Ranvet Stakes is a Group 1 weight-for-age contest over 2000m held at Rosehill in March and is considered one of the major lead-up races to The Championships.

Some of Australia’s best thoroughbreds have won the Ranvet Stakes, including back-to-back winners Tie The Knot and Theseo with the likes of Veandercross, Super Impose and Better Loosen Up also winning in years gone by.

In more recent times the Ranvet Stakes has been won by middle-distance horses that have the ability to see out longer trips. Avilius, Foreteller and The United States are three good examples of these staying types, which means the race is wide open to the betting public.

Recent Ranvet Stakes winners

  • Via Sistina ($2.30) gave her rivals a galloping lesson in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill, producing a blistering debut for the Chris Waller stable. The newly acquired European import was first-up after being purchased by the Yulong ownership for a staggering $5.5 million. She repaid the faith immediately, bringing her quality European form to the fore, careering away from her rivals in a slowly run Ranvet Stakes, stamping herself as the one to beat in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on April 13. There was no early speed on paper, which eventuated on Saturday, as Think It Over ($3.10) was forced to lead them up throughout the 2000m journey. Military Misson ($17.00) lobbed to his outside, while Via Sistina and Place Du Carrousel ($6.00) dropped in for cover. James McDonald was happy to sit quietly aboard the firming favourite with online bookmakers, allowing Via Sistina to go through her gears at the rear of the field turning for home. There was only one horse you wanted to be on, however, as the six-year-old cruised up to her opposition before putting them away in stylish fashion. Place Du Carrousel made it a one-two for Yulong connections, while Buckeroo ($9.00) and Think It Over were left to fight out the minors.
  • Dubai Honour for William Haggas and star jockey Ryan Moore have combined to win the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes in emphatic fashion. The European gelding was brought over on a mission similarly to Addeybb; who travelled to Australia completing the Ranvet Stakes and Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes double in 2020. He got into as short as $4.20 but punters seemed concerned with his form on drier surfaces appearing a query to some, seeing the eventual winner drift to $6 prior to the jump. It was an expert steer from Ryan Moore who brought up is 169th Group 1 win, with success all over the world and this one in a dominant display. Hinged led throughout the 2000m journey and set a strong enough tempo as Mo’unga elected to sit outside the leader. This left Ryan Moore and Dubai Honour following Hinged the entire trip before peeling off her back to get the saloon passage down the Rosehill straight. From there it was all over as Dubai Honour stormed clear, leaving the ever-consistent Montefilia powering into second place.
  • Despite being a three-time Group 1 in her own right, Montefilia was sent around as the only other runner given any chance against $1.24 hotpot Verry Elleegant. However, the David Payne-trained mare simply never looked like getting beaten in the home straight when sprinting clear. Having struggled for clear running in the Chipping Norton when chasing home Verry Elleegant, she turned the table on her rivals in the Ranvet. Montefilia added the Ranvet to an already impressive record and is set to add a fifth during The Championships.
  • The battle of the heavyweights continue with Addeybb and Verry Elleegant although the story was reversed with Addeybb being favourite and Verry Elleegant being a close second. In punters eyes there was no other possible outcome with Colette coming in as third favourite at $9. The punters were right when they went head to head from the start to finish until Verry Elleegant got the jump on him and was able to beat the previous champ by a length.
  • It was a battle of the Sydney heavyweights when Addeybb and Verry Elleegant went head to head in the Ranvet Stakes. Jockey Tom Marquand settled Addeybb at the front of the field with Verry Elleegant just to his outside. Marquand asked Addeybb to up the pace at the 600m mark and the duo paired off to battle it out in the home straight. Verry Elleegant ended up hitting the lead early on in the home straight before Marquand lifted his mount off the canvas and managed to hold a half length on Verry Elleegant over the final 100m to win in remarkable fashion.
  • Avilius delivered in the Ranvet Stakes after a disappointing showing in the Australian Cup. The Godolphin runner settled towards the back of the field and while it looked like he was a bit off the pace the stayer drew to the front around the 100m mark and streaked away to record a comfortable win.
  • Gailo Chop delivered a strong performance as a $2.05 favourite. Kicking out to an early front position, the Darren Weir runner ran the field into the ground from the front. At the 400m mark the horse took the front and streaked away, recording a three length win.
  • Our Ivanhowe had been holding out for a rain-affected track since arriving in Australia for Freedman Racing and the patience paid off at Rosehill. The stayer was having its first start since running in the 2016 Melbourne Cup and the result was never in doubt as it cantered away from them in the straight. Race-favourite Hartnell chased gamely, but the bird had flown with Our Ivanhowe.Read a full report here.
  • The United States was well-favoured to win the 2016 Ranvet Stakes and its class came through. The Robert Hickmott-trained six-year-old settled well back throughout the run before finding the gaps in the straight and bursting clear with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle. Punters got a good price of $5.50 for the son of Galileo which was able to hold off the challenge from Hauraki which charged late.Read full report.
