Queen Elizabeth Will Enhance Bring Something’s 2015 Cups Chances

Victory in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) at Flemington would mean more to Bring Something and trainer Ken Keys than just the win; it would enhance the gelding’s credentials for the 2015 Caulfield and Melbourne Cup.

If Bring Something can win the Queen Elizabeth Stakes on Saturday, his chances in the 2015 Cups will greatly increase.

The four-year-old has already passed the ballot clause for both races next spring after winning the Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m) on October 29, but a win in the 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes will make the path that much easier by enhancing his position in the handicaps.

Keys is confident Bring Something will be at his best in the spring of 2015 and can be a Cups contender, however his sights are firmly set on the Queen Elizabeth Stakes for now.

“We’re going into the race pretty happy,” Keys told TVN.

“We’re pretty positive after Bendigo. He’s such a light framed horse we haven’t done much with him.”

Bring Something relished the tempo of the Bendigo Cup, in which he sat last before coming through for a late win over Massiyn by just a nose. But Keys is confident the gelding can perform just as well in a faster paced race.

“It’s a pretty solid race. It’s a better quality of race than the Bendigo Cup without doubt,” he continued.

“Luke [Nolen, jockey] told me he had the race in his keeping at the 200 metre mark, but is still learning how to finish a race off.

“If he can improve again it’s going to help him again.”

Bring Something is currently a $11 shot in the 2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting market, for which Noble Protector is $3.20 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au.
