The Coolmore Classic is run over the 1500m at Rosehill Gardens and at $3.40 via Palmerbet, Espiona heads the betting for the 2022 edition.

Coolmore Classic 2022 Tips

2022 Coolmore Classic Best Bet - Expat

While she's not necessarily the most brilliant, Expat is such a professional, with early speed to take up the running and the ability to then switch off quickly.

Those traits generally allow the four-year-old reserves at the business end, showing her customary kick late when taking out the Millie Fox Stakes first-up.

We've seen that form franked immediately, with the placegetters Belluci Babe and Le Lude both comfortable Group 3 winners on last Saturday's Randwick card.

Three weeks between runs and being so well suited to Rosehill which her record reflects, she'll roll forward again under Tom Sherry and give a big sight.

2022 Coolmore Classic Value Bet - Krone

This Tony Gollan-trained mare bolted in with last year's Coolmore Classic with 57kg and now 12 months later, the topweight carries just 1kg more for 2022.

Although the results don't back it up, I feel Krone is building into this 1500m feature quite well, a trip she's clearly looking for after a pair of 1300m outings.

To the eye at least, she was searching for further after the second-up Magic Millions run behind Snapdancer, but was five weeks between runs in the Millie Fox.

That was just an even performance off a slow speed, but the necessary final blowout ahead her Group 1 defence this Saturday, where she should be peaking.

2022 Coolmore Classic Roughie - Atishu

Obviously, a risk after staying in the gates fresh, a habit that can stick on race day, albeit she jumped via the compulsory Randwick trial on March 3.

Atishu started as the second market elect in that Liverpool City Cup, which was easily taken out by Ellsberg and she was carrying 55kg against the boys there.

From her Aussie form, which included the initial prep when building for the Epsom, she's very well weighted with 52kg, back against her own sex for the first time.

Not the ideal build-up, although she did come to hand early in that first campaign (should've won her first three) and despite the bolter's odds, is not hopeless here.
