All Aged Stakes 2023 Tips


2023 All Aged Stakes Best Bet - Giga Kick

While ability alone took this very talented three-year-old a long way in the TJ Smith Stakes, I'm not convinced he relished a Heavy 9 surface on April 1.

Giga Kick certainly lost no admirers there as runner-up to I Wish I Win and those two progressive horses will likely continue a high-class rivalry next spring.

Although untried over the 1400m, this is well worth a shot at the stumps for now, with the Golden Eagle another spring option should he run the trip.

Craig Williams takes back the reins on the brilliant chestnut and while there's a wide gate to overcome, riding him that little bit colder could suit.

2023 All Aged Stakes Next Best Bet - Private Eye

Was perhaps another from the TJ Smith Stakes that didn't love the conditions and after being badly checked at a key stage, he was out of the race.

Happy to forgive that run from Private Eye, who is generally very honest and via the Newmarket return, he gave plenty of weight to the quinella.

While sprinting has remained the focus this season, 1400m-1600m is his right range and I felt he was looking for this trip after his Flemington return.

From barrier three under Brenton Avdulla, he should get a suck run around midfield and that will allow him to produce his customary big finish.

2023 All Aged Stakes Value Bet - Roch 'N' Horse

This is interesting placement stepping to 1400m for just the second time in her career, especially with the Adelaide sprinting features looming.

After a slow start to the campaign, we saw a much-improved effort in the William Reid Stakes and that warrants the trip north for this feature

Mike Moroney has trained two of the last six All Aged Stakes winners (Tivaci and Tofane) and he's already recorded two Group 1 upsets with this mare.

She proved the Newmarket triumph was no fluke with a WFA win over Nature Strip and Giga Kick in spring, while she'll do work here from gate one.
