A talented and capacity field of fillies and mares has been confirmed for Saturday’s 2016 Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Azkadellia has returned to racing in slick form this time and remains outright $3.60 favourite for success in 2016 Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
A strong and consistent performer for Ciaron Maher through spring, Azkadellia charged home to win the Condo’s Horse Transport BM78 (1400m) before running second in the Group 3 G1X.com.au Stakes (1600m) and third in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).
Resuming this time for second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) on February 13th, the Shinko King mare returned to winning form in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) before finishing second in Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and third in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) most recently.
Allocated barrier 9, Azkadellia has been confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop Damien Oliver in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
Zanbagh is yet to herald much interest in 2016 Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting markets but remains sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $6.
A strong and consistent performer since transferring to the care of John Thompson last spring, Zanbagh is drawn ideally in barrier 6 and will be partnered by Blake Shinn in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
Running fourth in the Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) before failing to fire in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) in December, Zanbagh resumed for second in the Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) on February 27th,
Running on for a credible fifth in the Coolmore Classic, the Bernardini mare will carry winning form into the Queen Of The Turf Stakes after taking out the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) a fortnight ago.
Three-year-old Risque failed to fire in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) a fortnight ago, but is treated well in the weights in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes and represents terrific value as current $9 third-favourite.
Winning the Group 1 NZ 1000 Guineas (1600m) in November, Risque debuted in Australia for an impressive first-up success in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) on February 13th before placing third in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in her only other start prior to the Vinery Stud Stakes.
