Azkadellia has remained outright favourite in 2016 Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au this week despite drifting to a quote of $3.70, ahead of Zanbagh ($6.50) and three-year-old Risque ($9).

Will Azkadellia justify favouritism and win the 2016 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, or will one of her talented rivals post an upset?

1st

Azkadellia ($3.70)

Azkadellia has returned to racing in typically strong and consistent form this season and will be very hard to beat in the 2016 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, in what is her return to fillies and mares company. Capping her 2015 campaign a credible third in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), the Shinko King mare returned this time for second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) before savaging the line for success in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m). Running second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), Azkadellia boxed on for third in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) last weekend and will be tough to beat with Damien Oliver in the saddle this weekend.

2nd

Miss Rose De Lago ($15)

Ex-Perth galloper Miss Rose De Lago has posted a number of impressive results since transferring to the care of Danny O’Brien in 2015 and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting market at current odds. Winning the Group 3 Ladies Day Vase (1600m) most notably in spring, the daughter of Encosta De Lago returned this time for third in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) on February 27th. Having placed fourth in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) on March 12th, Miss Rose De Lago will carry winning form into the Queen Of The Turf Stakes having beaten a strong field to the line in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) on March 24th.

3rd

Noble Protector ($14)

British import Noble Protector ran on for second in the Sunline Stakes last start, is drawn well in barrier 2 and will be partnered by in-form hoop Craig Williams. A standout for Robert Smerdon through the 2015 edition of the Autumn Carnival, the Haafhd mare won both the Schweppervescence Trophy and Sunline Stakes before running third in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes. Noble Protector will relish a mile at Randwick and should have no issue performing with 57kgs in tow.
