Still reasonably new to the racing calendar, this event sits at the right time of the year and holds enough money to continue building as a great race throughout the autumn.

At $4.80 via Neds, Cherry Tortoni heads the betting for the 2022 Golden Mile.

Golden Mile 2022 Tips


Golden Mile 2022 Best Bet - Holbein

Happy to be with Holbein on top each-way after a great effort when fourthin a strong race and although Cherry Tortoni should have won, he had a hard luck story as well with no room in the straight.

He makes his own luck (most of the time) on the pace and with plenty of main chances drawing wide in this event, he may just get the suck run needed to win.

At a great price and given we know what we are going to get, the ability is also there to win.

Golden Mile 2022 Next Best Bet - Cherry Tortoni

It was a very bad watch if you were on last start, but that is what happens when you follow backmarkers who have zero early speed.

Cherry Tortoni draws the carpark in this field which is not actually the worst thing for him given he gets back anyway and is not going to have traffic problems.

The issue in the big field is how much of a start he is going to give them, but it is fair to say that on ability, he is the horse they need to beat.

Golden Mile 2022 Value Bet - Hi Stranger

At his home track, I thought this bloke might be able to run a nice race given he is in good form and has won two of this three starts here.

A versatile galloper, he handles all track conditions and can prove competitive over any distance up to 2000m.

It feels like this may have been a little target race at his home track and with a perfect gate (seven), Hi Stranger is going to sit off the speed and look to produce a big run late.
