2022 Ranvet Stakes Details, Result and Recap
The 2022 Ranvet Stakes were won by Montefilia who is trained by David Payne. Montefilia won the 2022 edition of the Ranvet Stakes under the ride of jockey Jason Collett who won the 2000m contest in a time of 2 minutes and 7 seconds when defeating short price favourite Verry Elleegant.
The Build Up to the 2022 Ranvet Stakes
In the lead up to the 2022 edition of the Ranvet Stakes it was expected to be a cake walk for Melbourne Cup winner and Chris Waller trained superhorse Verry Elleegant with the multiple time Group 1 winner lining up against a small but capable field.
The 2022 Ranvet Stakes only had 6 entries with Verry Elleegant lining up against Angel Of Truth for Team Hawkes, Entente for Waterhouse and Bott, Sikandrabad for Sam Kavanagh, Emissary for Michael Moroney and Montefilia trained by David Payne.
When form for stacked up for the Ranvet Stakes in 2022 everything pointed to Verry Elleegant winning yet another Group 1 title and the bookies thought so as well opening the Waller trained mare at $1.35 to claim her twelfth Group 1 victory for the Waller stable.
In betting there was only one other runner in single figures with Montefilia sitting at $9.50 and the rest in double figures. With all the other runners for the 2022 Ranvet benchmarked around Group 2 and 3 level it was down to Montefilia to try and cause an upset having won 3 Group 1 contests previously.
The question was though that with only 6 runners in the 2022 Ranvet Stakes field was Montefilia a better horse or better suited to the conditions of the heavy Rosehill Gardens track? With the sprinting power of Verry Elleegant it was hard to see any other result than another Waller Group 1 win.

2022 Ranvet Stakes Race Recap
The lead up to the 2022 Ranvet Stakes was dominated by talk of Verry Elleegant adding another Group 1 title to her CV. The punters had backed her into an untouchable $1.24 with nothing else in the small field fancied to topple the Melbourne Cup winner.
As the gates opened the small field jump away slowly with the Mike Moroney trained Emissary the slowest to leave the barriers while Entente, Sikandrabad and Angel Of Truth took up the lead from Montefilia and Verry Elleegant.
Entente was allowed free reign in front and led the small Ranvet Stakes field for the majority of the race with Sikandrabad and Angel Of Truth tracking along behind with the remaining three tracking at the back of the field.
It wasn’t until roughly the 700m mark where runners began to take closer order behind long term leader Entente with Montefilia tracking wide into the race and Verry Elleegant tracking the 4 year olds moves.
As they peeled into the home straight at the 400m mark Entente’s race was run with Angel of Truth moving past the long time leader. However circling even wider with what appeared to be a ton of running between them was Montefilia and Verry Elleegant.
Montefilia made the first move pulling two lengths clear and around the 300m Verry Elleegant began to drift under the pressure and was found wanting. As the race entered the closing stages Montefilia cleared out from the chasing Verry Elleegant as they gapped the rest of the field.
The upset was Montefilia’s fourth Group 1 victory and her first win in the Ranvet Stakes.
