The Ranvet Stakes is the first weight-for-age event of the Sydney autumn racing carnival over 2000m and tends to attract good quality middle distance types who may be going on to a race like the Gr1 The BMW in a fortnight at the same track.

This race has proven a great guide to The BMW in recent years, with Silent Achiever (2014), Manighar (2012), Tuesday Joy (2008) & Eremein (2006) all taking out the Ranvet Stakes & The BMW double, while Thesio (2009) went on to finish runner-up in The BMW at his next outing. More recently, Fiveandahalfstar (2nd in 2013) finished runner-up in this event before winning The BMW at his next start.

The Gr1 Chipping Norton Stakes can often throw up winners or placegetters in this race and Contributer (2015) Thesio (2010), Grand Armee (2005) and Tie The Knot (2000-01) hav e all won the Chipping Norton Stakes & Ranvet Stakes double in recent times, while a number of horses have ran placings in both races.

Some classy gallopers have won the Ranvet Stakes over the years including the likes of Theseo (20010-11), Grand Armee (2005), Tie The Knot (2000-01), Veandercross (1993), Super Impose (1991) and the outstanding galloper Better Loosen Up (1990).

Gailo Chop (2018) finished second in the Gr1 Australian Cup over 2000m at Flemington in Melbourne before heading to Sydney to score a convincing victory in this event and recent Ranvet Stakes winners include Our Ivanhowe (2017) and The United States (2016).
