2022 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Tips

2022 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Best Bet - Yonce

Clearly class can see Colette and Icebath feature in a mares Group 1, but both are becoming very hard to catch and Colette was flattered in the George Ryder.

Although Yonce is unproven at this level, she certainly warrants a shot at the Queen of the Turf, arriving off an unbeaten stretch of six to start her career.

Bringing up her fifth victory in a high rating 1600m affair, she was then tested at 2000m, but class got her home there, so the drop back in trip suits.

We saw John Allen, Maher & Eustace and Ozzie Kheir combine with Hitotsu in the Australian Derby, and they can record yet another feature win here.

2022 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Next Best Bet - Nimalee

A Group 2 winner last autumn before attempting the Queen of the Turf, they don't come much more genuine than Nimalee, who arrives to this third-up.

While her winning ways aren't as prevalent in these black-type affairs, you still won't find a bad run from this five-year-old that does handle most conditions.

Colette showed her class last spring over the Matthew Smith mare, but does bring a $4 starting price from the Tristarc and then wasn't far away in the Empire Rose.

With champion hoop Damien Oliver in the saddle and off two solid performances to start her autumn prep, the early quote appeals on an each-way basis.

2022 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Value Bet - Yearning

This filly was terrific fresh via a tough Caulfield meeting to swoop on and with a slowly run affair second-up, there were excuses second-up at Flemington. 

Off that performance, we gave her a sniff in the Vinery third-up, but once again Yearning was dragged right out of it early and was never in contention there.

Coming back to 1600m hard fit, a trip she won the Thousand Guineas over last spring, this platform looks ideal for the Arrowfield blueblood to peak now.

The strong grand final combination of William Pike and Team Hawkes are together again, where from a middle draw in this big field, he can settle her closer.
