Silent Sedition carries winning form at the highest level into the Queen of The Turf Stakes and is subsequently the outright $4.20 favourite in betting markets for the racing with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Silent Sedition has been a strong and consistent performer for Andrew Noblet through her entire racing career so far and carries and impressive record of six wins and a further nine minors, through only sixteen starts into her appearance in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Resuming this time for second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m), the War Chant mare returned to winning form in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) before running a close second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

Having savaged the line to win the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) last time out on March 24th, Silent Sedition will leave from barrier 7 in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes and will be partnered by in-form hoop Craig Williams.

Foxplay has found typically strong and competitive form this time and is the sole occupant of the second line of Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting markets at a $6 quote.

Winning each of the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) in September, the Foxwedge filly ended her impressive spring campaign fourth in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Resuming this time for second in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m), Foxplay has since placed fourth in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m), won the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) and finished fourth in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

With only 54.5kgs in tow, Foxplay will be partnered by Kerrin McEvoy and shouldn’t have too much issue in finding a good position in transit from barrier 10.

Heavens Above and Dixie Blossoms are both yet to herald much interest in Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting markets, but are firm on the third line of betting at $8 quotes.

Heavens Above has been the stable star for Warwick Farm horseman Tim Martin throughout her entire racing career to date and managed to break through for a maiden win at the highest level when triumphant in the Coolmore Classic at her most recent start.

Dixie Blossoms returned to the races for a credible third in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) on February 13th, before storming home to win the Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) by close to seven lengths a fortnight later.

While failing to fire in the Coolmore Classic, the Street Sense mare was last seen running on for third in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) on March 25th.
