Looking for early info on this year’s Chipping Norton Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 1,600 metres in either February or March, the Chipping Norton Stakes offers one of the biggest prize purses for that time of year in Australia. Having previously been a Group 2 race, it has had the honour of Group 1 status for over thirty years.
Without a doubt, the best lead up race is the 1400 metre Apollo Stakes, taking place two weeks earlier at the same racetrack.
This race is considered an essential prep race for two other Group 1 races, the Doncaster Handicap and Sydney Cup, because a win offers ballot exemption to both.

Which Horse Will Win The Chipping Norton Stakes
The best way to pick who will win the Chipping Norton Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.
Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:
- To Winx Or Not To Winx – The famous mare has absolutely cleaned up this race in the past three years. If she’s retired, it means others horses have a chance. If she’s entered, then most of the money will flow through her taking 1st.
- Try A Place Bet – If the winner is all but a sure thing, and not offering a good payout, then consider a place bet. If there’s a non-favourite who won the Apollo Stakes, or at least took 2nd place, that would be your best bet.
- Behind By A Half Length – If any horses were only beaten by a half length in the Apollo Stakes, then they may be a good shot to take a place in the Chipping Norton.
