European import Via Sistina (barrier 5) is now under the care of Chris Waller, with Evergreen Equine forking out 2.7 million Guineas at last year's Tattersalls December Sales for the daughter of Fastnet Rock.

A Group 1 winner in Ireland back in July 2023, the daughter of Fastnet Rock recorded back-to-back seconds at Group 1 level in her last two outings for the George Boughey yard, while she opened her Australian career in style with victory in the Ranvet Stakes on Golden Slipper Day.

Chris Waller also prepares Buckaroo (barrier 2), Lindermann (barrier 10), Kovalica (barrier 7) and Atishu (barrier 9), with Sydney's leading trainer searching for his sixth win in this feature.

Pride Of Jenni (barrier 3) is an exciting frontrunner from the Ciaron Maher stable, who backed up her dominant All-Star Mile triumph with a narrow defeat as runner-up in the Australian Cup.

She did hold form deep into her 2023 spring campaign, with two 1600m Group 1 victories completed inside seven days over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Versatile Godolphin veteran Cascadian (barrier 6) beat Pride Of Jenni last start in the Australian Cup, where the nine-year-old relished the rise in trip to 2000m following his strong chasing performance in the All-Star Mile.

Mr Brightside (barrier 11) was disappointing as a beaten favourite in the Australian Cup, however, the gelding did pull up sore after that Flemington feature.

The six-year-old has a good record at Randwick, having recorded two wins and a second from three attempts on this circuit.

Three-year-old colt Ceolwulf (barrier 1) is backing up following a narrow defeat in last Saturday's Australian Derby, while he also finished second to Riff Rocket the start prior in the Rosehill Guineas.

11 runners make up the final field for the 2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Queen Elizabeth Stakes Winners

Originally run as the Queen's Plate and then the AJC Plate, this Group 1 was rebranded as the Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 1954.

Distances have varied for this feature over history, contested over 4800 metres and 3600 metres but was reduced in trip with the Sydney Cup becoming more prevalent and since 1986, has been run over 2000 metres.

Carbine and Tulloch were famous Queen Elizabeth Stakes winners in earlier years, while more modern champions include Jeune, Might And Power and most recently Winx, who won the Queen Elizabeth Stakes three years in a row (2017 - 2019).

Addeybb (2021), Think It Over (2022) and Dubai Honour (2023) have won the last three editions of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
