2022 Eskimo Prince Stakes Tips

2022 Eskimo Prince Stakes Best Bet - Paulele

While the head-to-head scorecard and Coolmore Stud Stakes romp suggests otherwise, there's not a whole lot between Home Affairs and Paulele.

The Waller colt peaked in massive Derby Day performance, whereas this three-year-old had come to the end of his prep by then, having produced a big effort in early August.

That return was via the Rosebud Stakes, which was completed in 1.01.98 for 1100m with a 33.09 last 600m, where he walloped the subsequent Golden Rose winner.

With a better draw and fairer track, he could've well beaten Home Affairs third-up and from gate five here, gets every chance to put his hand up for bigger autumn majors.

2022 Eskimo Prince Stakes Next Best Bet - Ranch Hand

He was overrated in his two-year-old season and while he recorded just one victory in spring, Ranch Hand seemingly went the other way as an early three-year-old.

The son of Fastnet Rock produced good figures in that victory over Ingratiating, a highly rated sprinter at the time, who was Group One placed two starts later.

Although never threatening the likes of Home Affairs and then Nature Strip, he certainly wasn't disgraced in either the Coolmore or VRC Sprint Classic at Flemington.

Converge is a better horse, but this colt is more an out-and-out sprinter and both lead-up trials have been faultless, with J-Mac firmly engaging the handbrake via the latest.

2022 Eskimo Prince Stakes Value Bet - Giannis

I felt he would furnish into a lovely three-year-old after showing some potential over five runs early last year, culminating his winter with a second in the JJ Atkins.

While Giannis managed a listed win over the spring when defeating Tiger Of Malay, he wasn't progressing enough, so the decision has been made to geld him.

Another galloper arriving to the Eskimo Prince Stakes off two trials, he has looked very forward, doing his best work past the line via the January 31 Rosehill heat.

Whether he's sharp enough to genuinely challenge at 1200m is a query, but there's a nice race in him at some stage and the Randwick 1200m is a good starting point.
