Noble Protector Leads 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Betting

A field of just 10 potential stayers will run in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) on Saturday at Flemington, in the final installment of the 2014 Melbourne Cup Carnival, offering punters some great value bets and chance to back a winner.

The 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is one of five Group races on Stakes Day, which is headlined by the Emirates Stakes and Darley Classic.

There are four horses offering single figure odds in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Noble Protector at $3.20.

The Robert Smerdon-trained five-year-old mare will jump from the middle of the field in barrier one with Craig Williams as jockey. The mare has finished first three in eight of her 10 career starts, including all five of her last times out. The British stayer made her Australian racing debut in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) on October 18, in which she was one length off the winner Contributer in second place. She went forward to be on speed and struck the front at the 300m mark. She fought it out well to run second but may have been a bit dour.

She’s the clear favourite to win the 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes as of now but has three other top contenders offering single figure odds she needs to beat home for the win.

  • #1 Prince Of Penzance ($4.20)Darren Weir’s five-year-old gelding isn’t far off Noble Protector in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting after winning the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup (2500m) last time out. The gelding will get a good start from barrier three with Hugh Bowman in the saddle but will also carry the topweight of 58kg, up to three and a half kilos more than his rivals.
  • #2 Big Memory ($5.50) – the Tony McEvoy-trained Big Memory is another single figure hopeful in the betting after finishing second in the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) and missing out on a start in the 2014 Melbourne Cup. A win in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) as well shows he has what it takes to last the distance of the Queen Elizabeth.
  • #3 Le Roi ($6) – This six-year-old entire is another Tony McEvoy hopeful, set to jump wide from barrier 10 with Damien Oliver in the saddle. He’s so far missed out on a win in both the Listed Cranbourne Cup (2025m) and Moonee Valley Cup this spring, but ran well to finish first three in both.

There are also six runners offering lucrative double digit odds who could cause an upset and win the race, including Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m) winner Bring Something ($11).
