Ranvet Stakes final field and barrier draw - field of 9 declared for Ranvet

  • Australian Cup and Chipping Norton the most reliable lead-ups.
  • Barriers have little impact.
Michael Walker riding Harlem wins the Australian Cup

An Australian Cup rematch with a twist is set to go ahead in Saturday’s Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Surprise Australian Cup winner Harlem has come up with barrier 6 in the field of nine with Michael Walker retaining the ride, while runner-up Gailo Chop has drawn ideally in gate 4 and 3rd placed Ventura Storm will jump from the outside gate.

The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Harlem will be aiming to achieve the feats of Manighar (2012) who was the last Australian Cup winner to take out the Ranvet Stakes at his next start. 

The Chipping Norton Stakes is generally a good lead-up to the Ranvet Stakes, and in 2018, Prized Icon (2nd) and Classic Uniform (3rd) bring that form and will jump from gates 2 and 3 respectively. 

Prized Icon has subsequently finished 6th in the Ajax Stakes (1500m) last Saturday and faces the quick back-up.

Nick Olive’s mare, Single Gaze (5th) and Team Williams' The Taj Mahal (8th) also come out of the Australian Cup, while Sarrasin is first-up from a spell and Kiwi mare Consensus brings strong form from New Zealand having finished runner-up to Devise in the Group 1 Haunui Farm Classic (1600m).
