Chipping Norton Stakes 2022 Tips

2022 Chipping Norton Stakes Best Bet - Colette

With question marks early in the prep on Verry Elleegant off a plain return and with no heavy track form for Think It Over, this Godolphin mare could start favourite

Although she still warrants respect on a firmer surface, a wet track is when she finds a new level, being unbeaten on heavy ground and has won two of her last three on a Soft 7.

Colette just couldn't make up the required ground to beat Think It Over in the Apollo Stakes, who couldn't have asked for a better run, with a perfect drop on the leaders.

Over a testing mile in the Chipping Norton Stakes and with the ability to let down on a bog track, this is great opportunity for her to record a third Group 1 win.

2022 Chipping Norton Stakes Value Bet - Montefilia

She's somewhat underrated and a quite a versatile galloper, with Group 1 victories over 1600m, 2000m and 2400m, while all of those wins have come at Randwick.

After going winless last autumn, Montefilia fought back in the spring, having built into the Metrop triumph perfectly and ended the prep with an honest Caulfield Cup effort.

The four-year-old generally comes to hand quite early in her work, resuming over this track/trip in the Chelmsford last prep and caught the eye with a slashing third.

Whether she can out-sprint the likes of Colette remains to be seen, but I suspect a testing 1600m bridges the gap on some of these, so she has to be given a sniff.
