We've been treated to classic contests over recent years, with Addeybb defeating Verry Elleegant twice and who could forget a packed Randwick in 2019 to watch Winx run her last race, with the champion winning a third Queen Elizabeth Stakes in a row.

At $2.20 via EliteBet, Ranvet Stakes winner Via Sistina heads the market for the 2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Tips


2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Best Bet - Via Sistina

She landed big bets on Australian debut in the Ranvet Stakes, where the daughter of Fastnet Rock came from the rear in a slowly run affair (fastest last 400m of the entire card).

This is a very different set-up in both tempo and a deeper field, but she has shown that change up speed off stronger speeds in Europe and they didn't want a gut buster first-up.

Arriving here three weeks between runs would've allowed Chris Waller to put a few more searching gallops into Via Sistina, with the Queen Elizabeth Stakes being her target for the prep.

This is a fascinating race, especially with the addition of the Australian Cup brigade, however, that trio come off a few hard runs/grand finals, whereas this mare still has improvement to come.
2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Next Best Bet - Cascadian

The Godolphin veteran defended his Australian Cup crown last start and while it was only a narrow win, he beat Pride Of Jenni fair and square, yet he's double her quote this time?

Coming back to Randwick and softer ground is also in his favour vs the All-Star Mile winner, with Cascadian a five-time winner on this circuit and he's also effective on all surfaces.

Ben Melham travels north for this engagement and he's built up a decent rapport with the nine-year-old, with two wins (both Group 1's) and two placings from five rides on Cascadian.

With a strong tempo set to suit him once again and as a tough, seasoned galloper who continues to show up at this level, he looks somewhat the obvious if looking outside the fav.
2024 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Value Bet - Kovalica

Although a tilt Golden Eagle tilt can't be sneezed at given the prize money available for a four-year-old, Kovalica has still been poorly placed since his Queensland Derby triumph.

Aside from the Epsom Handicap tilt last spring, he's lacked the sharpness in the legs over these shorter trips, especially this campaign as he's appeared more dour of late.

He still hasn't been disgraced in his prior three performances, however, with the gelding working home on the worst part of the track when contesting the George Ryder second-up.

The four-year-old was looking for 2000m in the Doncaster Mile and while this is a massive test at WFA level, Kovalica jumping out of the ground over this trip wouldn't shock.
