Chipping Norton Stakes Day Tips & Selections For February 29 2020

The Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival has finally arrived with Group One racing back on the agenda at Royal Randwick.

We’ve covered the main events of the card which can be found below:
 

Outside of the co-headline events there's a tricky card to negotiate, but with the rail in the true position and a Good 4 surface predicted every horse should get its chance to win.

Chipping Norton Stakes Day Favourites

Race 5 No. 4 Sweet Deal

This John Thompson-trained mare resumed with an easy victory in the Triscay Stakes at Randwick on February 15.

In a surprise result for most punters ($11.00 - $14.00), she led from start to finish on a Soft 7 surface (had previously never handled wet ground) and now gets up to the seven furlongs, a trip where six of her eight career wins have come over.

The Guy Walter Stakes doesn't appear to be any harder and off a favorable map once again, it's hard to recommend anything turning the tables solely off that fresh win.

Just whether that's perhaps taken the edge off her is the unknown and ultimately if it comes down to price then she's much shorter this time around but for good reason as she's the one to beat here if that form is held.

Chipping Norton Stakes Day Best Bet

Race 6 No. 1 Flit

Another that defied a big price to score first-up was this Godolphin filly who was a comfortable winner of the Light Fingers Stakes on February 15.

The 2019 Thousand Guineas champion who only had the one trial leading into that assignment, she had the blinkers applied prior to that run and exploded with the important gear change.

One of the more versatile runners in this Surround Stakes field, she gives her jockey plenty of options from barrier seven early in this big field whereas the talented Funstar will need luck from a wide draw.

Second-up and now stepping up to 1400m, Flit still has improvement to come and in a line-up that doesn't look to bat deep on quality, she can continue as the best bet on Chipping Norton Stakes day.

Chipping Norton Stakes Day Next Best Bet

Race 4 No. 3 Imaging

Chris Waller prepares this import for his first start in Australia off the back of two nice trials this month.

He's certainly looked very forward on both of them occasions with his last hit-out coming just recently at Rosehill when runnner-up to the talented Expressway Stakes winner Standout in the fastest 1030m heat that morning.

Showed good early speed to take up the running there so the option is there for James McDonald to be positive and potentially settle him outside of Vegadaze who likes the likely leader.

With a very consistent record overseas of five wins and five seconds from twelve starts and mostly around the seven furlong range, Imaging is capable of measuring up in the Liverpool City Cup.

Chipping Norton Stakes Day Roughie

Race 9 No. 4 Goldfinch

Admittedly it isn't a race that I was keen to be heavily involved in, however this Written Tycoon mare does seem an awfully big price off a forgivable fresh run.

She went around at $12 fresh in this grade on February 15 and never really let down properly on that soft track but as her record backs-up, she's never handled wet ground.

Although beaten four and a half lengths, Goldfinch wasn't disgraced in fourth and a return to a good surface where all of her form exists on, is a big positive.

The trip is the obvious query but Deanne Panya's one hope in this race that isn't stacked with leaders is to put the foot down early and up front, this five-year-old can give cheek.
