A feature that's had many names due to fluctuating sponsorships, it was run as The BMW throughout the early 1990s and from 2002 to 2017, a name that's still familiar to racing fans for those reasons.

Melbourne Cup winner Gold Trip heads a competitive market with Ladbrokes for the 2023 Tancred Stakes, with $4.60 available for the favourite.

Tancred Stakes 2023 Tips


2023 Tancred Stakes Best Bet - Cleveland

A lightly raced five-year-old from the Joseph O'Brien yard and in the famous navy blue and white of Lloyd Williams, Cleveland is an interesting runner.

There was talk of him straight into a Sydney Cup, but with a very winnable $1.5 million Group 1 over 2400m, they'd be mad not to have come here.

This strong son of Camelot was last seen contesting the Irish Cesarewitch (3332m) last September, where he lumped 63kg and gave 8kg to the winner.

While he's competed over further, this entire has shown a turn-of-foot over 12 furlongs and in a Tancred lacking a standout, he can take this out.

2023 Tancred Stakes Next Best Bet - King Frankel

Although he's far from the classiest import that we've seen on or shores, this gelding is as honest as any and he has a good platform for the Tancred.

A four-time winner in Aus from six outings for Mark Newnham, King Frankel finished out of the money for the first time Down Under on March 11.

He lost no admirers in that fourth to Protagonist, with the winner travelling stronger when the sprint went on, but he found a second wind late.

King Frankel needed every bit of 1900m fresh to nail an in-form Banju, which flattened him a shade second-up and he's crying out for 2400m now.

2023 Tancred Stakes Value Bet - Explosive Jack

The three-time Derby winner is sneaking under the radar a little in a comeback trail from lengthy lay-off, arriving to the Tancred now fourth-up.

Over 1600m, his two Melbourne performances to open the campaign were both pass marks and he improved in the Canberra Cup, finishing second.

Versus Arapaho at 2000m, he just didn't have the turn-of-foot to prevail third-up, but he sustained a strong run and that should top him off nicely.

John Allen reunites with the son of Jakkalberry and while the Sydney Cup is the main aim, he's certainly not out of this, with the blinkers now back on.
