George Main Stakes 2022 Tips

2022 George Main Stakes Best Bet - Anamoe

While the map perhaps favours Zaaki in this big heavyweight clash, I'm happy to take J-Mac's lead and stick with the star Godolphin entire.

Given how forward he was off two trials, Anamoe always had the Winx Stakes at his mercy despite working home in slightly inferior going.

Now four weeks between runs with the Cox Plate being the grand final, James Cummings has kept the four-year-old ticking over at the trials.

Given it was such a bottomless rack over The Championships where nothing made ground, The Queen Elizabeth Stakes result can be ignored.

2022 George Main Stakes Value Bet - Hinged

Although she wasn't sharp enough first-up regardless, the run of Hinged was one of the hidden performances of the Winx Stakes.

After Nash Rawiller overcame gate 10 on this four-year-old, she was kept in a pocket by Profondo at a key stage in the run home via that return.

Even with that slight inconvenience, the Surround Stakes winner stuck to the task admirably and managed to pick herself up again late.

There isn't a lot between Hinged and Fangirl (half the quote), with this mare getting the blinkers applied for this George Main assignment.

2022 George Main Stakes Roughie - Profondo

Despite question marks lingering after the autumn, Profondo is going well, a galloper who simply hasn't found his right set-up yet.

After peaking late on a wide run in the Winx Stakes, the son of Deep Impact never handled a Heavy 10 in the Tramway Stakes second-up.

The four-year-old still wasn't disgraced and once again he finds a favourable map, where he's likely to bw handy with Zaaki and Hinged.

With most of the rain predicted on Thursday, it's a wait until race day and if not in the heavy range, then he's a knockout hope.
