Saturday April 13, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The George Ryder Stakes is a top lead-up into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes is the richest race of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and offers $4 million in total prize money including a lucrative $2.4 million to the winner. Held on Day 2 of The Championships on the second Saturday of April each year at Royal Randwick, the weight-for-age Group 1 classic is run over 2000m and is held on the same day as the Sydney Cup, Australian Oaks and Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

The winners of the previous year’s Epsom Handicap and The Metropolitan as well as the current year’s Ranvet Stakes, The BMW, Doncaster Mile and ATC Derby are all exempt from Queen Elizabeth Stakes ballot.

The event attracts the season’s best weight-for-age gallopers and middle-distance hopefuls and one of the best Queen Elizabeth Stakes lead-up races is the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) held three weeks earlier at Rosehill Gardens on Golden Slipper Day.

The latest edition of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes took place on Saturday April 13, 2019 .

Queen Elizabeth Stakes Tips

Looking for gallopers that finished in the money in lead-up Sydney Group 1 races like The BMW held a fortnight earlier over 500m further is a top Queen Elizabeth Stakes tip.

Favourites in the race only have a fair record so looking for value in the markets and laying the top fancy in betting can also prove lucrative, unless the Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting favourite is Winx!

Mares have a poor Queen Elizabeth Stakes record with only six female gallopers beating home the boys since 1983 meaning the stallions and geldings dominate tipping on the race. In recent years however the mares’ hoodoo in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes has lifted with victories by More Joyous (2012), Lucia Valentina (2016) and Winx (2017 & 2018).

2019 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Tips

Our insider Ladbrokes’ Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2019 betting tips will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for who to back and sack in the Group 1 weight-for-age classic this autumn.

Queen Elizabeth Stakes Form Guide

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes form guide provides punters with all the must-know race facts and statistics including barrier positions and lead-up form. Horses coming off runs at Rosehill and Randwick have dominated the race over the past 30 years with only two Queen Elizabeth Stakes winners coming off a non-Sydney lead-up since 1983.

The age of the runners in the field is also listed on the Queen Elizabeth Stakes form guide and only one three-year-old has won in three decades with Intergaze (1997). The most successful Queen Elizabeth Stakes barriers since 1983 are six (six winners), two (five winners) and four (five winners) so looking for horses drawn the inside alleys is a top form guide tip.
