The All Aged Stakes is a seven furlong event run under weight-for-age conditions at Randwick and is one of Australia's oldest group one races.

Notable early winners include Carbine, Wakeful, Ajax (only horse to have won three All Aged Stakes), Bernborough and Tulloch whilst some of the more recent famous victors are Rough Habit, Sunline and Atlantic Jewel.

Off an eye-catching second in the TJ Smith Stakes, Masked Crusader is the $2.80 favourite with betstar for the 2021 All Aged Stakes.

2021 All Aged Stakes Tips

2021 All Aged Stakes Best Bet - Masked Crusader

The last five All Aged Stakes winners have all come through the TJ Smith Stakes and although this gelding wouldn't have beaten Nature Strip irrespective, he was comfortably the best performance in that sprint feature outside the winner.

At 34.19, Masked Crusader has rattled off easily the fastest last 600m of that entire April 10 meeting from Royal Randwick, going past the in-form Eduardo late and they were coming in at decent intervals after the first three home (Zoutori was more than three lengths back again in fifth).

While he is drawn out, Tommy Berry was most likely looking to settle the son of Toronado off the speed anyway and if we get an even track, where they can run on out wide, I think he starts shorter than the $2.80 currently on offer.

2021 All Aged Stakes Value Bet - Imaging

If there's a forgotten about galloper in the 2021 All Aged Stakes field, then this Chris Waller-trained import is likely it, a gelding that was completely unsuited dropping to the 1200m second-up via the Newmarket Handicap.

Prior to that performance, he should've won the Group One CF Orr Stakes first-up at Caulfield but the three-wide journey took its toll late whereas the winner had every favour, and now they've elected to freshen him right up again, which could be the key with Imaging.

Despite seemingly profiling as more a Handicap runner, his weight-for-age form over the last few campaigns has been quite consistent and from barrier 10, his best chance will be if Glen Boss rolls the dice and tries to find a back to follow, just forward of midfield.

2021 All Aged Stakes Roughie - Prague

This colt is in a similar boat to Imaging in many respects, as in doesn't have the class to beat the favourite if he turns up but in an otherwise open race, is a consistent type that keeps bobbing up in the finish, so should at least be included in the exotics.

We fancied him at a double figure price in last Saturday's Arrowfield Sprint where although we had to settle for third, it was an enormous effort after making a meal of the start, recording the fastest last 600m of that event when attempting a long run off a slow speed up front.

While this is obviously much tougher, it does feel as though Prague has been searching for this 1400m trip the whole preparation and with a cleaner getaway, can fill a top three/four slot off current form (was nearly the run of the race in the Newmarket Handicap two starts back).
