Golden Slipper 2023 Tips


2023 Golden Slipper Best Bet - Learning To Fly

The second foal out of Chairman's Stakes winner Ennis Hill, this Coolmore filly has shown versatility and professionalism in all three outings.

Learning To Fly sustained a run on the speed, yet pulled away late for a Widden Stakes win before a wide draw forced a colder ride in the Inglis Millenium.

She rattled home to take out what looks a strong edition of that restricted affair, while in the Reisling on March 4, she got the job done in a small field.

This Annabel Neasham two-year-old is the only unbeaten runner in the 2023 Golden Slipper field and with a soft run, she's top seed for this feature.

2023 Golden Slipper Next Best Bet - King's Gambit

A five-length winner of the Debutant Stakes before a spell, he was in second gear via a Jan 9 trial win, where he easily out-sprinted Don Corleone.

Starting as a $1.28 fav at start two, King's Gambit would be a clear Golden Slipper fav had he won well again, while the Silver Slipper run was fair.

In those small Mickey Mouse lead-up events, which have suited the likes of Cylinder and Red Resistance, this colt hasn't been able to settle well.

In a big field, where he can get a tow in off a stronger tempo, he could be ready to explode, with Team Snowden having not shown their hand with him.

2023 Golden Slipper Value Bet - Little Brose

It's of no surprise that a longer quote has been snapped for Little Brose, a Ben & JD Hayes-trained colt that hasn't put a hoof wrong in four starts.

While it was admittedly a messy Blue Diamond, it wasn't a weak edition and with commentary around hard luck stories, a strong win was overlooked.

A juvenile that had the benefit of an early spring campaign, he also hasn't been knocked about by a big prep this time in, arriving here just third-up.

After a second in the Maribyrnong Plate, the son of Per Incanto sailed past Cylinder to win the Merson Cooper, a race that stacks up most years.
