The highlight of Wednesday’s racing at Glorious Goodwood brings the Group 1 Sussex Stakes Tips into the spotlight.

This year’s renewal looks as if it may be a bit of a foregone conclusion with the presence of Baaeed.

However, that leads us on to explore other Sussex Stakes Tips like the forecast and the without Baaeed market.

Upsets do happen as well, of course. While it would be one of magnitude if Baaeed missed out, it’s still worth exploring the field.

Alcohol Free 11/1

Baaeed 1/6 FAV in Sussex Stakes Tips

The big favourite in Sussex Stakes tips is BAAEED. He is currently an unapproachable 1/6 quote* (odds recorded at 18:44 GMT on July 26th, 2022 at Bet365).

Why is he such a strong favourite on Wednesday? His record just speaks for itself, that’s why.

It’s been eight appearances and eight wins by the Willie Haggas-trained Baaeed.

It’s so tough to come up with any reason to oppose him for another victory.

This season he has taken his form even further as a 4-year-old. Baaeed opened the campaign with a victory in the Lockinge.

He then followed that by taking a comfortable victory in the Group 1 Queen Anne at Royal Ascot last month.

Unfortunately, the one that would have given him something to think about, COROEBUS, has pulled out of proceedings.

ALCOHOL FREE (w/o Baaeed)


Alcohol Free to follow Baaeed home?

So the Sussex Stakes tips 2022 are largely focusing on the race for the runner-up spot.

ALCOHOL FREE is a big contender for that as she arrives in good winning form. There was a revival by her as she landed the July Cup.

Returning from the sprint action, she warrants some respect in the contest for a second place finish.

That victory in the July Cup at Newmarket was the fourth Group 1 success of her career.

She is a quote of 11/1 in Sussex Stakes odds for Wednesday* (odds recorded at 18:44 GMT on July 26th, 2022 at Bet365).

Alcohol Free has gone up against Baaeed before and has been found wanting.

It’s hard to see that changing on Wednesday at the Sussex Stakes, a race that she won twelve months ago.

Order Of Australia to push for the places

Another that should be in the frame for the places is ORDER OF AUSTRALIA who also arrives in winning form.

He’s 16/1 at the moment in Sussex Stakes odds for the win* (odds recorded at 18:44 GMT on July 26th, 2022 at Bet365).

That doesn’t look too likely and he is another that has faced the power of Baaeed before.

The two met in the Queen Anne and Order Of Australia was found wanting by six lengths against that rival.

Order Of Australia claimed a victory at the Curragh 10 days ago. That was a Group 2 effort.

He has the ability, as shown in his Breeders’ Cup Mile success back as a 3-year-old. Winning this is a tall order, however.

Modern Games could muscle his way in

MODERN GAMES is capable of getting in the frame for the places on Wednesday in the Sussex Stakes.

He really started to take his form forward last Autumn when he banked the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf in a hot run of form.

Modern Games doubled his Group 1 tally at the start of this campaign.

That was with a score in the French 2000 Guineas. Since then it has been two losing efforts in Group 1 runs over in France.

But Modern Games ran with plenty of credit in both of those and is likely to give a good account of himself.

Rest of the Runners

CHINDIT has won two of his last four runs but still doesn’t get on the shortlist for the Sussex Stakes tips 2022.

He opened the season with a victory and then scored the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot earlier this month.

Sandwiched between those two efforts were back-to-back heavy defeats in the Lockinge and Queen Anne to Baaeed.

BATHRAT LEON is a challenger from Japan who won his last effort. That was a Group 2 at Meydan back in March.

He outran his odds on that occasion in the Godolphin Mile, and it’s hard to see how he launches another surprise victory.

ANGEL BLEU finished the previous campaign in red-hot form, claiming a couple of Group 1 wins over France.

There has been progress this season by him in two defeats. Angel Bleu did perform with credit in the Greenham on his reappearance but has a lot to find on form.

Without Baaeed Sussex Stakes odds

Alcohol Free 7/4
Order Of Australia 3/1
Modern Games 10/3
Chindit 17/2
Angel Bleu 11/1
Bathrat Leon 11/1

Sussex Stakes Tips & Racing Odds

Because of BAAEED’s presence coupled with no 2000 Guineas and St James’s Palace winner Coroebus to oppose him, there’s no plausible reason to expect anything other than a win for the favourite.

So that leaves Sussex Stakes tips focusing on the race to follow him home. For those purposes, ALCOHOL FREE, fresh from a good Group 1 sprint win has the appeal.

She is a quote of 7/2 in the Without Baaeed market* (odds recorded at 18:44 GMT on July 26th, 2022 at Bet365).

The other that is going to be put on the shortlist for this contest is MODERN GAMES at 10/3* (odds recorded at 18:44 GMT on July 26th, 2022 at Bet365).

He has been trained-on well this season and has churned out some good Group 1 efforts over in France this season.
