More Joyous Deserving Favourite – Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2012

Glamour mare More Joyous heads into Saturday’s 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) as deserving favourite after an impressive autumn that has seen her produce three dominant victories.

More Joyous is the race favourite in tomorrow's Queen Elizabeth Stakes

A win against some quality stayers in this weekend’s $500,000 Group 1 event would be the icing on the cake for the Gai Waterhouse-trained horse who is backing up just seven days after an emphatic Doncaster Mile victory.

Many were happy to write the winner of 18 of 25 starts off ahead of the Doncaster but she proved the doubters wrong with a special effort to win by nearly a length.

She faces another challenge this Saturday in both opposition and distance as she takes on star imports Americain and Manighar at a distance she has only run at once when finishing fifth in the 2010 Cox Plate.

Keep reading to find out the crucial facts about the champion mare as well as reasons to back or sack her when betting this weekend.
