2022 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Tips


Black Caviar Lightning Stakes 2022 Best Bet - Nature Strip

Not only Australia's, but the world's best sprinter in Nature Strip makes his return to the track after a spring that included wins in both The Everest and VRC Sprint Classic.

He is the reigning champ of this race, taking out a thrilling edition last year with Jamie Kah in the saddle who once again takes the reins.

We know he will stroll along and his work leading into this race has been faultless, so as long as Kah can set his eyes on the winning post and not get caught in a duel with Eduardo, then he 's your likely winner.

Black Caviar Lightning Stakes 2022 Next Best Bet - Home Affairs

The new kid on the block who is set for Royal Ascot success later this year in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes over 1200m.

Doubting the 1000m will be his go, but we have seen the likes of Brazen Beau as a three-year-old prove competitive before claiming the Newmarket Handicap at their next start, so recent history does sit in his favour.

September Run finished second to Nature Strip in this race last year by the barest of margins and this colt is a much classier sprinter, while his turn-of-foot from a tactical position just enhances his chances.

Black Caviar Lightning Stakes 2022 Value Bet - Masked Crusader

He should have an Everest win next to his name, slicing and dicing through the field that day to just miss Nature Strip.

First-up over the 1000m is the concern as his best form is proven to be over 1200m which we will see him run at in the TJ Smith Stakes.

Masked Crusader has never had a start down the straight, but due to his negative racing pattern, he can naturally tack on that bit closer on the straight circuit and make one long run at them.
