The third of four Group 1 races on the Randwick race card for Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day this weekend is the Queen Of The Turf Stakes 2016, run as The Coolmore Legacy Stakes.

Due to run as Randwick Race 8 at 3:55pm (AEST) on Day 2 of ‘The Championships’, this year’s $1 million Group 1 The Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m) will run under capacity with 15 starters after the scratching of Politeness and the two emergencies.

Four of the fillies and mares left in the mix are under $10 for the win in the latest Queen Of The Turf Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au including the clear favourite, Azkadellia ($3.50).

She is at a steady price to improve on her last start third to Winx in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) seven days ago when returning to the track and distance against her own kind on the quick back-up.

Ciaron Maher’s Shinko King four-year-old hasn’t finished out of the money since November of 2014 and is one of the most consistent Group 1 performing mares of the season having also crossed second to Peeping two back in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

She is followed in the current Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting markets by Zanbagh who has eased out from $6 to $7 despite a gun barrier five draw for her hoop Blake Shinn.

John Thompson prepares the five-year-old daughter of Bernardini who comes off the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) win from late last month.

She’s back up to elite level company for the first time since her Coolmore fifth when beaten two lengths carrying only 51kg, and aims for her maiden Randwick win having twice run second from her four previous assignments at the track.

The others under $10 for the win are dual CF Orr Stakes winner in Melbourne Suavito ($9.50) drawn wide and out to improve on a ninth to Preferment in Flemington’s Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) from March 12, and fellow $9.50 hope Badawiya jumping from the second outside barrier.

Mick Price trains Al Maher filly Badawiya whose up against the older mares here, the Group 1 Thousand Guineas third placegetter form the spring having won the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) first-up at Flemington before her last start fourth in the Emancipation when beaten only three-quarters of a length.

The genuine Queen Of The Turf Stakes market mover backed in from $21 to $15 for the win is the super consistent Heavens Above drawn a treat in barrier three with Tye Angland riding.

Tim Martin’s Street Cry four-year-old won back-to-back Randwick races over 1400m and 1600m respectively in non-black type company earlier this autumn including the Group 3 Aspiration Quality before her last start second at Rosehill in the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m) on March 19.

There’s also been money coming in for the likes of the Danny O’Brien-trained Sunline Stakes winner over the Moonee Valley mile on March 24 Miss Rose De Lago ($15 into $13), Charge Forward four-year-old Slightly Sweet ($41 into $26) who has a strong Randwick record (5-2-0-1) and Anthony Cummings’ Epona winner Vergara ($41 into $34) coming off the Doncaster mile fourth from last Saturday.
