Queen Elizabeth Stakes Form Guide & Tips
Happy Clapper ($21) Bet Now
Didn’t have everything go his way last start after pulling up with a breathing issue but he’s quality at best.
He has run second behind Winx on four occasions and he could well do that again here, but this won’t be an easy race for him and he might run out of the placings.
Still, he’s a quality type which can’t be overlooked.
Hartnell ($23) Bet Now
Grand campaigner which has made a career running behind Winx, but he’s coming off a tough run in the Doncaster and that could play against him here.
There’s no doubting his ability and he is the second-best horse in this race but he’s an ageing eight-year-old who has his best racing behind him.
$23 and $2.25 to place will be seen as value.
Harlem ($61) Bet Now
Capable of springing an upset, as he did when winning two back at Flemington in the Australian Cup, but he looks no chance in this.
Likely to be outpaced over this distance, Harlem should be struggling to keep up.
He’s Eminent (Best Each Way – $21) Bet Now
Former European runner which didn’t lose any admirers when running second behind Avilius in the Ranvet Stakes.
The son of Frankel may be only a three-win horse, but he looked good at times overseas and that form typically stacks up well.
He will sit on the speed and give a good kick at $2.15 for the place.
Kluger ($46) Bet Now
The Japanese seven-year-old ran well for fourth in the Doncaster Mile and that bodes well for a good showing in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
He should improve over the longer distance and Tommy Berry shouldn’t have to do much work from the inside barrier.
$46 and $3.90 to place is a good enough price from bookmakers.
Mask of Time ($126) Bet Now
Thought connections might have tried for a run in the Sydney Cup and he doesn’t have much chance of running in the first three here.
Twice-placed this campaign but they came behind much easier opposition and we would be shocked to see him run in the money.
Winx (Best Bet – $1.06) Bet Now
She’s the best horse in the land and they won’t even get close to her. There’s no new opposition and she has beaten most of these with ease in the past.
The small field will allow her to settle back and on the outside. Hugh Bowman will boot her up approaching the turn and she will go to the line hardly touched for her 37th and final career win.
Danzdanzdance (Best Roughie – $27) Bet Now
Doesn’t seem fair that she’s weighted on the same line as Winx and that makes it tough for the four-year-old, but she has class.
The New Zealand-trained runner finished third behind Avilius in the Ranver Stakes, which was a good performance first-up in Australia.
She was in the worst part of the track and she looks a good chance to run a top-three placing at $2.50.
Shillelagh ($71) Bet Now
Showed enough in the Doncaster Mile last Saturday to warrant attention. The Waller-trained mare flashed home late for fifth and if she can get on the back of Winx, she could work home nicely.
Upset place chance.
