2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day Scratchings And Track Report

The second day of The Championships is upon us and thankfully there is plenty of blue sky in Sydney ahead of the running of both the 2014 Sydney Cup (3200m) and the 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

The Royal Randwick surface is now rated in the slow range and should give all horses taking part in each race the opportunity to run at their best.

A number of races on the program at Royal Randwick last weekend were savaged by scratchings, but the improved condition of the track means that there has been very few changes in the fields for the major races this afternoon.

The only major scratching at Royal Randwick today is that of talented mare Sharnee Rose, who has been removed from the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) after breaking down during the week.

There has not been a single scratching in the other Group 1 events on the Royal Randwick card and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes will feature all 12 of the talented gallopers that were included in the acceptances for the race on Wednesday.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes is a very difficult betting race, but leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is attempting to make it easier for punters by offering an amazing 30% percent bonus on the odds of every single runner in the field for the Group 1 event.
