The 2020 Ranvet Stakes runs at Rosehill this Saturday and we have our best bets for the Group 1 feature.
A truly international field lines up in 2020, with William Haggas lining up the current favourite from Europe. However, Chris Waller and his team of four is looking to keep the Ranvet Stakes on home soil.
It’s an intriguing edition of the 2000m race, and we have done the form for every runner.

Ranvet Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Avilius ($3.70) Bet Now
Avilius can never be left out of calculations and his odds reflect those thoughts. The James Cummings-trained gelding is a champion winner of 11 races, including just under $3 million in stakes.
His efforts this campaign haven’t been up to his usual standard, which is why he’s not in our top three bets.
There’s no doubting his ability when right, but he might have lost some of his brilliance over the summer months.
2. Addeybb (Best Bet – $2.50) Bet Now
Most European runners that come to Australia have second grade form, but Addeybb is the exception. Despite having not raced since October, the Willie Haggas-trained gelding should have the class edge over this field.
The son of Pivotal ran second behind Magical in the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot last start. Magical is a horse that would put five lengths on this field, so it’s cracking form.
He handles all track conditions and we’re not surprised to see his opening price of $2.80 firm into $2.30 (back out to $2.50).
4. Norway ($23) Bet Now
Norway is a former European, now in the hands of Chris Waller. The son of Galileo won his most recent start at Leopardstown by 1.3 lengths, but that was run over 2414m.
He’s better over the longer distances and that could be his undoing in this race. He faces a field that excels at 2000m, but watch for him finishing off his race stylishly.
5. Verry Elleegant (Best Each Way – $4.40) Bet Now
Punters needed to see a good run Verry Elleegant and they got it last start. The Waller-trained mare pushed Te Akau Shark all the way in the Chipping Norton, which was a great effort.
She’s getting closer to a win and she has been another well-backed runner. Her opening odds of $4.80 have firmed significantly.
James McDonald could ride a three-legged horse to victory at the moment.
6. Danzdanzdance (Best Each Way – $10) Bet Now
Another former Kiwi, Danzdanzdance has the potential to beat a field of this nature if the race is run to suit.
Her form since arriving in Australia hasn’t been up to par but she hasn’t been taking on easy field. The same applies here but it’s now or never for the five-year-old.
$10 is a good enough price to take as a saver.
7. Nettoyer ($21) Bet Now
Nettoyer scorched home to score at Randwick last start, but she’ll need to improve lengths on that effort to win.
She now faces a star-studded international field and she’ll likely struggle. The small field won’t help her chances either, so look for a much better price than the $21.
8. Youngstar ($13) Bet Now
Fans of Youngstar are patiently waiting for a return to winning form but we can’t see it happening here.
The five-year-old ran second behind Shared Ambition at Randwick last start. It was a good effort, but it has been such a long time between wins, we have lost faith.
$13 is massive unders and we would only entertain her chances if she was paying $30.
