QUEEN OF THE TURF STAKES | KEY RUNNERS

1. Atishu – Won this race last year in dominant fashion. 2nd in the mpire Rose and wins in the Mackinnon Stakes and Blamey Stakes since. Close 3rd in the Australian Cup which is the A Grade form. Is the one to beat.

2. Zougotcha – Is racing in great form with 2 strong wins this prep. Has to run a strong mile off a 28 day break here and this race has been a graveyard for favourites.

3. Campionessa – Multiple G1 winner and placegetter in NZ. Won the peter Young two starts back then no luck in the Sunline Stakes last start. Can figure.

6. Olentia – Ran excellent late sectionals to win the Emancipation by 2.8L last start. Has to rate a chance off that performance and profile.

7. Eternal Flame – Doesn’t appear to have the class of others, but hard to deny a mare in form with 2 solid Group wins in a tow.

10. Madame Pommery – Good run in the Millie Fox first up then no luck in the Coolmore last start. Would rate highly if the track was wet.

14. Tropical Squall – Won the Surround Stakes nicely for us first up, then a close 4th in the Coolmore last start. Certainly has the ability but a leader off a 28 day break not ideal for this.

16. Makarena – Hasn’t really had any luck this prep at all but has raced well every start. In the mix.

17. Tiz Invincible – Was a solid run in the George Ryder last start. Has been disappointing this prep and has drawn the carpark but can surprise at odds.

BETTING STRATEGY

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN): 1. Atishu for 1.5 units

Atishu is the class runner here and profiles very nicely. Plenty of others however could win without shocking and it is a race that springs an upset more often than not. 1. Atishu – Won this race last year in dominant fashion. 2nd in the mpire Rose and wins in the Mackinnon Stakes and Blamey Stakes since. Close 3rd in the Australian Cup which is the A Grade form. Is the one to beat.

BACK (WIN): 6. Olentia for 0.5 units

Olentia’s last start performance brings her into it. Ran excellent late sectionals to win the Emancipation by 2.8L last start. Has to rate a chance off that performance and profile.
