Queen Elizabeth Stakes – Form Comments

G1 – 2000m – Turf

1

Hartnell

Solid effort when 3.3 lengths 2nd to Our Ivanhowe in G1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m - heavy) at Rosehill on 18 March. Three times placed behind Winx in past 12 months including when 8 lengths 2nd in last October’s G1 Cox Plate (2040m).

2

Exospheric

UK import placed three of five starts in Australia. Finished well when 1.6 lengths 3rd to Humidor and Jameka in G1 Australian Cup (2000m - good) on 11 March before 8.3 lengths 3rd to Jameka in G1 BMW (2400m - heavy) on 25 March. Better than heavy ground would assist.

3

Happy Clapper

Sound performance last Saturday when 0.5 lengths 2nd to It’s Somewhat  in G1 Doncaster Mile (1600m - heavy) at Randwick. Ran third in this race last year on soft ground.

4

The United States

Raced handy, held on well when 4.1 lengths 3rd to Our Ivanhowe and Hartnell in G1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m - heavy) at Rosehill on 18 March. Ran second, half a length in front of Happy Clapper, in this race last year on soft ground.

5

Sense Of Occasion

Ran on well last week when 4 lengths 3rd to It’s Somewhat in G1 Doncaster Mile (1600m - heavy) at Randwick. That was first run since 13 January when 2 lengths 2nd to Red Excitement in Listed Gosford Cup (2100m - good).

6

Harlem

French import who debuted in Australia with closing 3.6 lengths 3rd to Palentino in G2 Blamey Stakes (1600m - good) at Flemington on 18 March. Rise in distance suits on French form.

7

Singing

Failed at first run since September when too keen in run and finished 6.8 lengths last of 11 behind It’s Somewhat in G2 Ajax Stakes (1500m - soft) at Rosehill on 11 March. Rise in distance suits but has to improve dramatically.

8

No Doubt

Sound effort when one length 2nd to Spectroscope in G3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m - heavy) at Rosehill on 25 March. Untried at distance and faces steep rise in class.

9

Winx

Champion mare chasing 17th straight win and 12th at G1 level. Effortless 7.3 lengths winner, at latest run, from Le Romain and subsequent winner Chautauqua in G1 Ryder Stakes (1500m - heavy) at Rosehill on 18 March. Capable all conditions and won G1 Cox Plate (2040m) at most recent run in this distance range.
