2015 The Championships Day 2 – Royal Randwick Scratchings

Today in Sydney Day 2 of The Championships, Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day, takes place on another rain-affected Royal Randwick track with a bumper day’s racing headlined by four Group 1 races set to play out.

Overnight rain in Sydney has turned out another mud track that now stands as an official Heavy (8) as of 7:45am (AEST) this morning.

That means the mudlarks are out to play and are firming in the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au including the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Criterion in the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m), the four-year-old boasting a win and a third from his three previous Heavy track starts.

Randwick Track Report – 11/04/2015

  • Track Rating: Heavy (8)
  • Rail: +6m 1600m to Winning Post, +3m Remainder
  • Weather: Overcast
  • Penetrometer: 6.06
  • Rainfall: 11.2mm last 24hrs, 52mm last 7 days

The 2015 Queen Elizabeth Stakes running as Race 9 at 4:35pm (AEST) is the day’s marquee event and has a significant scratching from the field with the former hot favourite Contriubter out.

The John O’Shea-trained Ranvet Stakes winning import was found to be lame in his off foreleg, the announcement made last night, and so comes out of the field leaving a dozen hopefuls.

New favourite at $3.50 is Japanese raider To The World ($3.50) followed by the aforementioned Criterion ($3.80).

There are is a host of other big name scratchings from the Group 1s at Randwick today, which Ladbrokes.com.au are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% markets on.

In Race 6, the 2015 Australian Oaks, three fillies are out with Vinery Stud Stakes winner Fenway, Chris Waller’s Wine Tales and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Adrift all withdrawn.

And in the Sydney Cup 2015 over the two miles, Red Cadeaux has been out for a few days with confirmation he takes them on in the Queen Elizabeth.
