2016 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Betting: Winx Odds-On

Chris Waller’s seemingly unstoppable mare Winx dominates all-in Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2016 betting for this weekend’s Royal Randwick major after her record-breaking Doncaster Mile win last Saturday.

The four-year-old daughter of Street Cry didn’t shy away from the challenge of carrying 56.5kg in the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m), overcoming the weight and a far from ideal run to set a new record for a 4YO mare under those kilos in the classic.

It was her ninth consecutive victory and her sixth elite level win, the now $6.7 million earner likely to back-up on the short seven day turnaround into the $4 million Group 1 Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on Day 2 of ‘The Championships’.

The official Queen Elizabeth Stakes field, which has a capacity of 14 starters plus four emergencies, is set for release at 9am (AEST) on Tuesday morning.

Waller is yet to 100% confirm Winx’s acceptance, but said that ensuring she was still around and racing in the spring and next autumn was the team’s number one priority.

“I don’t think there will be many who are disappointed ­regardless of our decision. The only disappointment will be if she’s not there next year,” he told the Herald Sun on Sunday.

Winx and her hoop Hugh Bowman pulled off a masterful performance in the Doncaster Mile, weaving their way through traffic on an unsuitably choppy Soft track to win running away on the line.

Three-time Melbourne Cup winning mare Makybe Diva tops the thoroughbred earning’s list down under retiring with a pretty $14.52 million in the bank.

Success in this weekend’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes would take Winx up to $8 million with a 14th win from 20 starts, but Waller said prize money wasn’t the most important thing when it came to deciding on whether or not to run her in the weight-for-age feature.

“It’s all about maintaining her winning record and keeping admiration for her,” the dual Queen Elizabeth Stakes winning trainer of My Kingdom Of Fife (2011) and Reliable Man (2013) said.

More Joyous was the last favourite to salute for the punters in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes back in 2012 on the back of a Doncaster Mile win, the same double Winx will be shooting for four years on.

She was the first mare to beat home the boys in the race since Dinky Flyer back in 1987.

Waller is also set to saddle-up his last start Group 1 The BMW (2500m) winner Preferment who occupies the second line of Queen Elizabeth Stakes odds at $8 and who Bowman will partner if Winx doesn’t run.

The four-year-old Zabeel stallion is a four-time Group 1 winner and will be out to become the third of his age in as many years to win the race joining It’s A Dundeel (2014) and Criterion (2015).

Also equal on $8 for the win is the Robert Hickmott-trained The United States.

Connections including goliath racehorse owner Lloyd Williams are set to pay the $66,000 late entry fee to get the last start Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) champion into the field.

The next best in betting are the defending champion Criterion ($13), the John O’Shea-trained Ranvet Stakes runner-up Hauraki ($13) and Ciaron Maher’s class mare Azkadellia ($15) who ran a brave third in the Doncaster Mile.
