2022 Tattersall’s Tiara Day Tips & Preview

It’s the final day of the Brisbane Winter Carnival and the final Group 1 feature of the season.

Given its position in the Australian racing landscape, the Tattersall’s Tiara is typically one of the most exciting contests of the year as stables, jockeys and gallopers have one final crack at glory.

Check out my selection in the feature and my complete 2022 Tattersall’s Tiara Day Tips below!

The Conservatory At Tattersall’s Class 3 Handicap (1600m) – 11:43am
No. 5 Sea Palling

Sea Palling hasn’t returned a poor effort since debuting, and he can win the first on Tattersall’s Tiara Day.

The Collate gelding stamped himself as one to watch by winning on debut at the Sunshine Coast in March and he has returned three impressive efforts since, including a win over 1200m at Ipswich earlier this month.

This is a rise in class, but he has the runs on the board and can win again.

Impressu Print Group BM78 Handicap (1200m) - 12:18pm
No. 10 Uncommon James

Uncommon James hasn’t been seen at the races since June last year, but he was nothing short of outstanding during his debut prep and he can make a winning return on Saturday.

The Cable Bay gelding finished second on debuting at the Gold Coast in May 2021 and didn’t look back, winning each of his two subsequent starts in style, including the Listed Oxlade Stakes.

His two recent trials have suggested that he is ready to go and is arguably the class horse of this field.

Listed Tattersall’s Gold Crown (2150m) – 12:53pm
No. 1 Our Intrigue

The first bit of black type on Tatt’s Tiara Day will see some quality fillies and mares contest the Gold Crown, including Our Intrigue.

Our Intrigue has been a strong and consistent performer without saluting this time in, and will take her place in this field following an impressive second placing behind Smart Meteor in last weekend’s Ipswich Cup.

There’s $1.80 about her at publish, but I think that she will just win, so I am still happy to dive in at that price.

Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup (2400m) – 1:28pm
No. 5 Bonny Ezra

Some talented horses will step out in this year’s Tattersall’s Cup field, including Bonny Ezra.

Bonny Ezra has been a strong and consistent performer for the Waller stable this time in and hasn’t missed placing at her last five trips to the races.

Her win in BM78 company at Scone during the Carnival was excellent and she’s only just missed at her last two appearances, including the Listed Winter Cup at Rosehill.

This is probably an easier race than that one, and she gets into it well.

2022 Battle Of The Bush Final (1200m) – 2:03pm
No. 1 Star Of O'reilly

Plenty of former city types will go around in this year’s Battle Of The Bush Final, and Star Of O’reilly is the one that I want to be with.

Star Of O’reilly returned some nice efforts under the care of Bjorn Baker earlier in his prep, but he’s been excellent since moving to North Queensland and Todd Austin’s care, winning three of four back this time.

A repeat of his effort for second in the Magic Millions Country Cup in January would see him into the finish again on Saturday.

Edward Street Brisbane 3YO Fillies (1200m) – 2:38pm
No. 3 Tilianam

The former Waterhouse & Bott galloper Tilianam will debut for Tony Gollan in the sixth on Tattersall’s Tiara Day and given that I was a bit of a fan of her south of the border, I give her a real chance in something like this.

Tilianam mixed her form earlier this time, but she was last seen finishing second, beaten a head in BM78 company at Flemington.

She has trialled well since that performance, and this looks a nice race for her.

Listed Tallersall’s Life Members Stakes (1400m) – 3:13pm
No. 7 Chayse 'N' Artie

Chayse ‘N’ Artie clearly has a lot of talent, and he’s the one that I want to be with in the seventh on Tattersall’s Tiara Day.

The Flying Artie gelding has made just three appearances at the races, but broke his maiden in style at the Sunshine Coast before returning an outstanding effort for fourth in The Phoenix last time out, having enjoyed absolutely no luck in running.

He steps out this week in peak order and will take beating.

Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) – 3:53pm
No. 16. Startantes

This is an outstanding edition of the Tattersall’s Tiara, and there is a case to be made for a few of them in the season’s final Group 1.

I’ve put Startantes on top, but be sure to check out my full race preview and 2022 Tattersall’s Tiara Tips RIGHT HERE.

Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) – 4:37pm
No. 8 King Of Sparta

King Of Sparta hasn’t missed placing at this point of his prep, and the WJ Healy Stakes looks a nice campaign launchpad for him.

The son of I Am Invincible has been a great horse for the Snowdens since debuting, and went to another level last time in, winning the Magic Millions Guineas.

He’s had the benefit of a couple of trials leading up to his return and he boasts a class edge over a lot of these rivals.
