Zipping Classic 2022 Tips

Zipping Classic 2022 Best Bet - Sound

The Moroney-trained veteran has won this race in both of the latest editions, last year comfortably beating quality horses including Melbourne Cup place getter Spanish Mission.

Sound is a horse that is set for one race a year and that is this one, and once again he looks to be building up to a win after running a very strong performance in the Queen Elizabeth.

There was only one-length between him and Luncies in that race and now he gets a 3.5kg weight swing in his favour - not sure what I am missing as he should be a single figure chance and close to favourite.

Zipping Classic 2022 Next Best Bet - Without A Fight

He was one of the second favourites for the Melbourne Cup and although did slightly disappoint on paper, there were probably a few things against him.

He should get firmer ground which we know he has performed up to a high level on overseas and now steps back in trip to 2400m where he is also well performed.

A similar profile to a horse like Southern France who won this a few years ago, he does look the quality of the race.

Zipping Classic 2022 Value Bet - Chapada

He is only scraping into the numbers and does not win out of turn, but at the price he looks a great horse to throw in for the back-end of exotics as this is the type of race we can often see him bob up in.

His run four starts back in the Naturalism would see him as a leading contender in this with the form very strong out of that event, but the starts subsequently were just in stronger races.

This is a weaker affair than what he has been facing and getting back to good ground certainly sits in Chapada's favour.
