Waller’s other Group 1 winners that are nominated for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes are Egg Tart, Foxplay and Shillelagh as well as several imports that include the Japanese galloper Admire Winner and Satono Rason.

The James Cummings trained Godolphin Team has only three entries, the promising Kementari, Flight Stakes winner Alizee and last year’s runner’s up Hartnell, who returned to the race track in great order to win the Group 1 $500,000 Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last Saturday.

Tosen Stardom also kicked off his Autumn Carnival campaign at Caulfield last Saturday and wasn’t disgraced with a first up eleventh, only two and a half lengths behind the winner Hartnell in the Group 1 $500,000 Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m).

Champion Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien has nominated two horses for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Group 1 winner Deauville and the lightly raced War Decree.
