Northerly Stakes 2022 Tips

2022 Northerly Stakes Best Bet - Amelia's Jewel

After a shock first defeat as a $1.40 fav in the Burgess Queen second-up, order was restored in the WA Guineas with this star filly taking out that feature.

Touted by many as one of the premier two-year-old's in Australia after a sensational first campaign, it's been a slower build-up this prep for Amelia's Jewel.

With a featherweight of 50kg and the three-year-old fillies having such a strong record in this race, she's projecting towards a peak performance here.

It's got a similar feel to Arcadia Queen's 2018 lead-up and for a potential star versus mostly well exposed rivals, she can make a statement in the Northerly Stakes.

2022 Northerly Stakes Next Best Bet - Steinem

A Group 3 winner at end of last spring, this classy daughter of Frankel was hampered by wet tracks over a short autumn prep before being tipped out.

After a first-up flop when slow away, Steinem was around six weeks between runs when putting in a much-improved effort at The Valley on Oct 22.

While a strong 2000m might just see her out, she improved again when second to Atishu in the Matriarch, with that winner running the race of her life.

That mare was unlucky at Group 1 level the start prior before a second to Banker's Choice, who was coming out of a Mackinnon, so the Melbourne form reads well.

2022 Northerly Stakes Value Bet - God Has Chosen

Although he's likely to improve again from this, especially at 2000m in something a little easier, this gelding was very brave in the Railway Stakes third-up.

There were admittedly a few hard luck stories from that feature, but to pick up again in the last 100m after a wide journey, his run had plenty of merit.

Jockey Clint Johnston-Porter also suggested (after the Railway) that he'll get further this rep, with God Has Chosen looking more dour as a five-year-old.

While a win at Group 1 WFA level would surprise, I feel he's got more improvement than most of the locals and a top three/four finish wouldn't shock.
