2024 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Tips


2024 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Best Bet - Atishu

Connections have made right decision to scratch from the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, with the Chris Waller-trained mare looking to defend her Queen Of The Turf title.

While she was a proven Group performer going into last year's edition, Atishu went to a new level in that run and she's arguably improved since then (won the Champions Stakes).

I felt her tiring third in the Australian Cup was a combination of a 28 day gap and Pride Of Jenni taking away her turn-of-foot late over 2000m, but I like that platform for this race.

She'll be at her top now fourth-up, especially with that strong hit-out completed last start, while with the six-year-old adept on good and soft ground, she's very well placed here.
2024 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Next Best Bet - Olentia

After winning five or her first six starts, Olentia has been about as reliable as an ashtray on a motorbike, however, she rediscovered her brilliance when stepping to 1500m last time.

The daughter of Zoustar was backing up seven days after a plain run on Golden Slipper Day, but she was five weeks between runs in that second-up performance (setback?).

Olentia looked a completely different animal a week later when bolting in with the Emancipation Stakes and she ran the fastest last 600m/400m and 200m of the March 30 program.

Although she's still hard to get a read on and also trust given the mixed form prior to that, Olentia may have turned the corner last start and overall, this isn't a strong Group 1.
2024 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Value Bet - Eternal Flame

This is clearly harder than what she's been contesting in Melbourne, but the four-year-old is progressing nicely and Queen Of The Turf Stakes well worth a shot at the stumps.

Eternal Flame arrives here off back-to-back Group wins, which followed two races where she was unsuited and while deep into her prep, they haven't got to the bottom of her yet.

That was evident two starts back at Flemington where she wanted to duck in at key stages before balancing up late and Moonee Valley isn't ideal circuit despite saluting there recently.

Damian Lane has a good association with Eternal Flame, with the gun hoop unbeaten from two rides on the Michael Kent-trained mare and a drying track is also in their favour.
