Over 2400m at Group Two level, we often see horses coming out of the Melbourne Cup and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, targetting this race to end their campaigns.

This year, Melbourne Cup third place getter Spanish Mission heads the market for the Zipping Classic.

2021 Zipping Classic Tips


Zipping Classic 2021 Best Bet - Spanish Mission

He is by far the class galloper of this field and on ratings will win this his head on his chest against horses who are realistically Group Two/Three level at their top.

Spanish Mission is proven to be one of the world's best stayers and made that a fact when running a very honourable third in the Melbourne Cup behind Verry Elleegant.

The only question over him is whether 2400m is going to be his ideal trip, but he seems a slightly sharper stayer than what we have seen from the internationals in the past, so it looks a get in the queue job for mine.

Zipping Classic 2021 Next Best Bet - Warning

He showed his class in the Queen Elizabeth over 2600m at Flemington last start when leading for the entire trip, but he does lack a touch of brilliance on the favourite.

Having been ridden like a stayer, kicking up on the pace and running his rivals into the ground at his past two has sparked a sense of confidence in the horse, so now is the right time to have a crack at a race such as this event.

If he continues his current vein of form, it is hard to see anything outside of the favourite beating him here.

Zipping Classic 2021 Value Bet - Sound

Last year's winner returns in an attempt to go back-to-back, and has been running quite well of late, especially his last two starts.

Two back he was third in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup behind Lunar Flare and Floating Artist, before placing second behind Warning in the Queen Elizabeth last start.

Sound is going just as well as last prep in similar race to this, so expecting him to be around the mark for placing with that Warning formline.
