Given WFA status for the first time this year, this race will now draw horses from formlines such as the Cox Plate, while horses coming out of the Group One handicaps also look suited.

At $3.10 with Neds, Private Eye heads the betting for the 2022 Kennedy Champions Mile.

Kennedy Champions Mile 2022 Tips

Kennedy Champions Mile 2022 Best Bet - Private Eye

Although it's been an unorthadox prep to be peaking at WFA level over the mile coming through high grade sprints, he is just going way too well to ignore in this.

An amazing second placing in The Everest was backed up with a powerful victory in the Nature Strip Stakes over 1300m last weekend in Sydney.

Private Eye is already a Group One winner over the mile, so that holds no concerns, it is just whether he can produce his best at this journey after what has been a sprinting campaign.

Kennedy Champions Mile 2022 Next Best Bet - Cascadian

Love the way that this honest trooper is going this prep, finding some winning consistency which is not something he has done in a long time.

Classes above in both the Hill Stakes & Craven Plate, Cascadian has proven over his career that he is a Grand Final horse and can find the line first when he is set for it.

James Cummings has not brought him down to Melbourne this prep and that is to get Cascadian's confidence up to its peak, ensuring he is ready to go for this Grand Final.

Kennedy Champions Mile 2022 Value Bet - Mr Brightside

Coming out of the Cox Plate, this gelding is so much better suited back to the mile where he is already a Group One Doncaster winner.

Mr Brightside was not beaten far in an All-Star Mile earlier this year, running behind both I'm Thunderstruck and Zaaki who are two of Australia's best.

Definitely the horse most suited in this distance range, the question is more about whether he has already peaked this campaign.
