Can Americain Cause 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Upset?

Americain is still chasing his first victory the year and gets a chance tomorrow when lining up in the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse.


Americain has a chance to upset More Joyous and Manighar in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes

Currently paying $4.20 at, the former Melbourne Cup winner has raced twice in 2012, having finished third and second in the Australian Cup and BMW to Manighar.

The David Hayes-trained horse will have to topple the French gelding to win tomorrow and will also have to beat glamour More Joyous who is fresh off a Doncaster Mile victory.

Americain will be well rested, having last run in the BMW on April 7 and has new jockey Craig Williams in the saddle after flamboyant French rider Gerald Mosse was sacked following a much-criticised BMW ride.

Don’t know whether to back Americain this weekend? The team have done the hard work for you ahead of the feature Rosehill race, delivering the stats that matter and crucial reasons to back or sack Americain.
