The 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is scheduled to run as part of a thrilling day of racing at Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 23, 2011, and betting markets for the $500,000 race have now been released.
The Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes will be run over a stayer’s distance of 2,000 metres and will be run under standard weight-for-age conditions.
Due to run as Race 5, the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is due to run at 2.55pm (AEST).
The current favourite for the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is Peter Snowden’s Retrieve.
Retrieve finished second in the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby last start but has yet to win a race this preparation, despite finishing second in three quality Group races.
The three-year-old colt has been allocated barrier eight for the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy.
Cedarberg won the 2011 The BMW last start and opted out of the 3,200 metre Sydney Cup in order to run in this race.
The four-year-old gelding, who has drawn barrier 13 for this weekend’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes, is currently paying odds of $5 at Luxbet.
Not far behind in third favourite is last Saturday’s Doncaster Mile winner Sacred Choice, who is paying $5.50 to win at Luxbet.
Sacred Choice will be hoping for heavy rain at Randwick this Saturday, with the five-year-old mare thriving on wet tracks.
Sacred Choice will jump from gate 7 in the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Tim Clark.
The least supported runner in the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting is Buccellati who, despite drawing the inside barrier, is paying odds of $151 to win at Luxbet.
