The final field is in for the $5 million dollar Golden Slipper, Australia's premier two-year-old event which headlines a big card of racing from Rosehill on March 19.

We go through the chances of each runner in the 2022 Golden Slipper below:

1. Daumier (8) @ $18.00 via Ladbrokes - J: M. Zahra. T: A & S. Freedman.

A super professional colt that hasn't done much wrong, winning on debut and was caught in the wrong part of track in a Blue Diamond Prelude prior to landing the Melbourne two-year-old feature on Feb 26 when the blinkers went on. Perhaps lacks some brilliance, but maps beautifully once again and certainly can't dismiss.

2. Sejardan (7) @ $6.00 via bookmaker - J: J. Collett. T: G. Portelli.

Hasn't been running time, but the March 5 win, on a day where nothing else came from back in the field, had plenty of merit. Won 3/4 and that included circling the entire field at Rosehill - a very tough ask and the only loss came when wide/underdone in the Millenium. Arguably has the best platform for the Golden Slipper.
3. Best Of Bordeaux (10) @ $10.00 via betstar - J: S. Clipperton. T: K. Fogden.

Won the Canonbury on debut in poor time compared to the fillies, which saw him start double figures in the Silver Slipper, a key lead-up where he rolled forward, absorbed a strong speed and kicked in what was the inferior ground. Has a few more options than on-speed rivals drawn to his outside and has to be a chance.

4. Shalatin (5) @ $26.00 via Neds - J: N. Rawiller. T: J. Pride.

Had plenty of hype off an eye-catching debut in the Kirkham and then narrowly missed in the Golden Gift to Sejardan. Has been a little disappointing since his return, albeit finally showed tactical speed in the Todman and could just be waiting for a drier track. On ability, he's in the mix, but is hard to trust at present.

5. Jacquinot (11) @ $17.00 via bookmaker - J: H. Bowman. T: M. Price & M. Kent Jnr.

Reminds me a little of Anamoe in his two-year-old season, i.e. not necessarily an out-and-out juvenile sprinter, but ability is taking him a long way, especially in a crop that's lacking class. Big debut win, luckless in the Prelude and was huge for third in the Blue Diamond. Confident there's another gear...will the blinkers find it?
6. Sebonack (15) @ $34.00 via Ladbrokes - J: W. Pike. T: M, W & J. Hawkes.

A stylish debut winner in the Chairman's, which has been a strong Melbourne form race in recent years and wasn't disgraced for fourth in the Blue Diamond. The Group 1 combo of Pike/Hawkes team-up and 'The Wizard' has a wide alley to overcome. He'll make a nice three-year-old, but suspect at a strong 1200m currently.

7. Rise Of The Masses (20) @ $61.00 via betstar - J: T. Clark. T: G. Waterhouse & A. Bott.

Has zero turn-of-foot, but is super honest and the Waterhouse & Bott camp have done a terrific job landing a group victory with this workmanlike colt, who dug deep to take out the Pago Pago last Saturday, albeit the time of that event suggests it's an ordinary bunch. Had his birthday last week and the market reflects that.

8. Coolangatta (14) @ $5.00 via bookmaker - J: J. McDonald. T: C. Maher & D. Eustace.

Her Gimcrack Stakes was 7.5 lengths faster than the Breeders' Plate won by the Sejardan, so simply wins this with anything resembling that. Negative is that she hasn't improved on that despite the two subsequent wins, while there's a query on that Magic Millions form and arrives fresh? Plenty of questions, but is the benchmark on figures.
9. Revolutionary Miss (17) @ $21.00 via Neds - J: K. McEvoy. T: P & P. Snowden.

Improved throughout the campaign, especially in Melbourne when taking out the Fillies Prelude and then narrowly missed in a tight Blue Diamond finish. Best ridden cold and with a tow into it, so perhaps one of the few least affected by a wide draw. Had four first prep runs including a Jan debut..has she already peaked?

10. Russian Conquest (16) @ $13.00 via betstar - J: T. Berry. T: P & P. Snowden.

It was a plain run in the Resiling Stakes fresh, but we've seen that blow the cobwebs out effort from the Snowden's before following a Magic Millions, with Capitalist bouncing off one to bolt in with a Golden Slipper. Will find a firmer surface here and is tactically versatile, which she'll certainly need to be from a tricky map.

11. Queen Of The Ball (3) @ $17.00 via Ladbrokes - J: R. King. T: R & M. Freedman.

Her Widden Stakes win rated better than the Canonbury Stakes (Best Of Bordeaux) on Jan 29, three lengths faster overall and were home five lengths quicker. Didn't handle the Soft 6 track when losing the Silver Slipper as fav, but bounced back in the Black Opal and ticked the 1200m box. A drying track brings her into it.
12. Fireburn (2) @ $11.00 via TAB - J: B. Avdulla. T: G. Portelli.

Has excuses when wide and off speed in a muddling debut, but has been bombproof since, recording a winning hat-trick on good and heavy ground. Has sprinted off varying tempos, which will hold her in good stead via a high-pressure Golden Slipper, but barrier two now in a big field is the main worry if she settles right back .

13. Ojai (12) @ $51.00 via BoomBet - J: C. Schofield. T: J. Cummings.

James Cummings and Godolphin snatched a Golden Slipper with Kiamichi, so perhaps anything is possible, albeit this girl is up against it. Cashed-in on a wayward Queen Of The Ball to win the Kirkham and while mostly honest, has looked a rung or so off this sort of level, despite it being a weak crop. Likely starts longer.

14. Seven Veils (19) @ $34.00 via TAB - J: J. Parr. T: M. Newnham.

Was well backed on debut and wins that had she drawn a barrier, picking up again late despite a wide trip. Sustains a gallop, rather than unleashing a turn-of-foot, so was well very well ridden in the Reisling, a race that rated superior to Sejardan's Todman victory. Would've loved a kinder draw, as this map has her working early.
15. Lady Laguna (13) @ $51.00 via BoomBet - J: L. Meech. T: A. Neasham.

There's a case there for the starting price pervs, as she was a $2.50 fav when defeated in the worst going in that Sweet Embrace, with the first two from that (Fireburn and She's Extreme) well in commission here. Her prior form was all in the 1000m-1100m range, which does leave question marks on a strong 1200m.

16. She's Extreme (6) @ $10.00 via Unibet Australia - J: B. Prebble. T: A. Cummings.

Recorded the best last 200m of the Sweet Embrace and comfortably bettered anything recorded by the boys (Skyline Stakes) on Feb 26. Gone one better last week in winning and again outperformed the males (Pago Pago) - more than six lengths quicker overall/fastest last 200m of both. Now a genuine Golden Slipper chance.
17e. Sweet Ride (9) @ $61.00 via bookmaker - J: J. Van Overmeire. T: A. Neasham.

Showed a nice turn-of-foot to win the Black Opal Preview and was well respected in last week's Pago Pago, where he had to settle second to the dogged Rise Of The Masses. Don't think he's quite up to it, should he sneak into the final field.

18e. Millane (1) @ $126.00 via betstar - T: P. Moody.

Certainly, worth a shot at the stumps in a thin crop, a colt that built through his gears nicely up the Flemington straight and looks far better suited to 1200m. Needs two to drop out, so looks unlikely to go around.

19e. Semillion (18) @ $201.00 via Neds - T: M, W & J. Hawkes.

Would certainly add more spice to an already high-pressure map should a miracle happen and he make the final field, being a very speedy two-year-old from Team Hawkes. Wouldn't run out the 1200m though.

20e. Man In The Mirror (4) @ $201.00 via Unibet Australia - T: A. Neasham.

There's a decent race in him, but not at this level currently. The Group 3 Schweppervescence (1400m) next Saturday would be a logical target.
