Looking for early info on this year’s Chelmsford Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
The Chelmsford Stakes is a Group 2 Sydney Spring Racing Carnival feature held at Royal Randwick at the start of September annually, the Saturday after the Wyong Gold Cup takes place on the first Friday in September.
The weight-for-age event takes place over a mile (1600m) and serves as a key lead-up to the bigger Group 1 races during the festival like the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) held at the same track and distance a fortnight later. Superstar mare Winx (2017) was the last galloper to do the Chelmsford Stakes – George Main Stakes double.
The $750,000 Rosehill Gold Cup (2000m) held in Sydney on the same day Melbourne hosts its Victoria Derby Day card is a likely end-of-spring option for Chelmsford Stakes graduates and Think It Over (2021) was the last to do the double.

WHICH HORSE WILL WIN THE chelmsford STAKES IN 2022?
Which horse will win the 2022 Chelmsford Stakes comes down to a number of key form factors including the barriers, form over the 1600m distance, any earlier lead-up form from the spring and their previous Group race experience.
When selecting the Chelmsford Stakes winner it is also important to consider:
- Waller Factor: Trainer Chris Waller has an outstanding record in the race having prepared his sixth winner in nine years in 2020 with Mister Sea Wolf.
- Winx Lead-Up: Any horses up in distance but down in grade out of the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) a fortnight earlier make a good Chelmsford Stakes bet. Samadoubt (2019) was the last horse to complete the Winx Stakes – Chelmsford Stakes double.
