A world class ten furlong weight-for-age event will be run on day two of The Championships via the Group One Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

We were treated to a classic contest last year which saw Addeybb defeat Verry Elleegant and with the champion mare finally turning the tables on William Haggas galloper in the Ranvet Stakes last start, it looms as another mouth-watering clash on Saturday.

It's tight at the top of the early market but at $2.60 with Unibet Australia, Verry Elleegant just holds favouritsm for the 2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Tips

2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Best Bet - Verry Elleegant

An eight-time Group One winner that has developed into a world class galloper after having her faults early days and especially on rain-affected ground, is comfortably the best middle-distance runner in the country albeit is quite bombproof in regards to conditions.

While Verry Elleegant is unlikely to get a testing surface again following her one length victory over Addeybb in the Ranvet Stakes, with two Group One victories on Good surfaces including a weight-for-age 2000m triumph last spring in the Turnbull Stakes, she's versatile,

Returning to winning form with a typically brave and fighting performance in the Chipping Norton Stakes, there's more petrol in the tank for the Chris Waller-trained mare ahead the 2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes compared to last autumn where she also contested the Tancred Stakes, and was a month between runs going into that most recent Ranvet Stakes.

2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Value Bet - Mo'unga

After producing the biggest of all eye-catching performances in the Randwick Guineas where after being blocked for a run early in the straight, was forced to come off the rail and switch all the way out to the middle lanes, the son of Savabeel recorded a much-deserved Group One victory in the Rosehill Guineas.

While he did appear suited dropping to a mile in last Saturday's Doncaster Mile, after drawing barrier 18, he spotted them much too big a start and although made some inroads, did appear a more dour over the 1600m, so the ten furlongs appears about his perfect range, which was evident two starts back.

In what hasn't been a strong three-year-old crop, it will take a mighty training effort from Annabel Neasham to have Mo'unga peaking again in such a tough race, however, we certainly have to respect the placement and on top of the ground, is one in this small field that does have a sharp turn-of-foot, which gives him a sniff.
