Queen Elizabeth Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Addeybb ($2.90) Bet @ Sportsbet
Addeybb was involved in a classic battle with Verry Elleegant when winning last year, but that came on a very heavy track.
He was handled by the favourite in the Ranvet, but it was his first start in Australia since April 2020, so it was a forgive run.
It would be foolish to rule him out of contention and he should finish in the first two, but we’re picking Verry Elleegant to get the better of him.
2. Sir Dragonet (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Cox Plate winner got back to winning form when scoring a comfortable win two weeks ago. The track was in his favour, but it was still a top effort to score.
He is now a four-time runner from 15 starts and although facing some slick rivals, his win in the Cox Plate showed he can muster on the big stage.
Barrier two suits and Glen Boss retains the ride.
3. Mugatoo ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
Mugatoo was disappointing last week when running fourth behind Cascadian. He might want it a heavier track to show his best and although he’s classy, this is another level.
The Kris Lees-trained six-year-old owns a win and placing at Randwick but we’re prepared to leave him out of selections on Saturday.
4. Think It Over ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Think It Over caused an upset when winning last start but he has since been scratched from the Doncaster last week.
It was a minor setback, but it’s not ideal form coming into such a high-pressure race. The small field doesn’t suit him and if it becomes a tactical battle, he could be left flat-footed.
6. Dalasan (Best Roughie – $34) Bet @ Sportsbet
It will take a big effort for Dalasan to beat the two favourites, but he’s capable of running in the money.
The four-year-old has done plenty of racing with 24 starts and his run for third in the Doncaster was terrific. He flashed home behind Cascadian and a repeat could take him close.
$34 is a price worth taking and he could boost payouts.
7. Verry Elleegant (Best Bet – $2.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
The star Kiwi has been the Queen of the Turf this season with consecutive wins in big races. She scored a gutsy win two back before beating Addeybb in fine fashion.
The Chris Waller-trained five-year-old is a four-time winner at Randwick and five-time winner over this distance.
There is everything to like about her chances on Saturday and we wouldn’t be surprised to see her start as the odds-on favourite.
8. Mo’unga ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
Mo’unga isn’t well-weighted at 55.5kg and he shouldn’t be figuring in the finish.
His run last time out was disappointing and we’re surprised to see him running in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes. He should be outclassed against this level.
