Can Criterion take out the Ranvet Stakes

The Ranvet Stakes (2000m) is the first of five Group 1 races on the programme at Rosehill this weekend and has attracted an intriguing mix of gallopers including Criterion, and last year's Caulfield Cup winner, Mongolian Khan.

Here are the top five contenders. 

Hauraki ($3.80 William Hill)

The John O'Shea-trained galloper gets another crack at a Group 1 after finishing 3rd behind Winx last time in the Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), the second successive time he finished in that position to the super mare. He has some solid form over the 2000m and finished 2nd at his last run over the distance behind Complacent in last years Craven Plate (2000m), while he was a Rosehill 2000m winner in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes this time last year. The son of Reset should be a competitive force on Saturday and will go close. 

Dibayani ($4.00 Luxbet)

One of two gallopers in the race for the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig-training combination, Dibayani produced what was his best run yet on Australian soil at his last start, chasing gamely to finish 2nd behind Winx in the Chipping Norton Stakes. The former import is now in his second preparation in this country and it will be interesting to see if he can follow up from that effort. He showed some promise early on last campaign finishing 3rd when second up behind The Cleaner in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) before managing just 9th of 12 runners in the Underwood Stakes (1800m). He looks set to produce a much better third up effort this time around and is one of the major contenders. 

Criterion ($5.00 CrownBet)

The class runner of the field, Criterion jumps up in distance from the 1300m of the Canterbury Stakes (1300m) but he may have the versatility to pull this one off. The much-travelled galloper took out last years Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) before embarking on an overseas campaign that saw him run some competitive races at Group 1. The best pointer to his chances on Saturday might be his performance in last years Caulfield Stakes (2000m), a race in which he was able to win after a two-month layoff. The five-year-old was then placed in the Cox Plate (2040m) and the Melbourne Cup (3200m) and has now racked up over $7 million in prizemoney. If he is anywhere near his best, he could eat these up. 

The United States ($6.00 Ladbrokes)

An interesting contender in this is the Victorian galloper, The United States, who has had two runs this campaign for an impressive 5th behind Turn Me Loose in the Futurity Stakes (1400m) before he was left a sitting duck when finishing 2nd in the Blamey Stakes (1600m) last weekend. The lightly raced six-year-defeated Prince Of Penzance in the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) last spring and looks to be right in the mix at the each way odds. 

Mongolian Khan ($11 Luxbet)

The 2015 Caulfield Cup (2400m) winner has had just the one run since his memorable effort in the Melbourne spring major last year, finishing a well-beaten 11th behind Winx in the Chipping Norton. While the Kiwi galloper may be in need of this, he has some handy form over the 2000m in Australia, having finished 3rd behind Criterion in last years Caulfield Stakes and can feature in the placing’s this weekend.
