Queen Elizabeth Stakes barrier draw fails to spilt market favourites

Tuesday morning’s barrier draw for the $4m, Group 1 Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on Saturday has failed to split the favourites at TAB in Verry Elleegant (NZ) and Addeybb (GB).

Both were priced $2.60 prior to the draw and after they drew gates three and four respectively, were left at that quote.

In fact, only Dalasan’s price changed (from $26-$34) after he drew the widest of the eight runners.

In the $2m, Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m), Favorite Moon (GER) came in a point after drawing gate three and is now into $6 which puts him on the second line of betting behind Realm Of Flowers ($5).

Sydney Cup favourite Realm Of Flowers opened $101 in first markets
Miami Bound was the best supported runner in All In betting for the Sydney Cup (see bets below) with one punter riding her to a potential $68,000 win
One punter stands to win over $20k if Addeybb wins the Queen Elizabeth thanks to a double featuring impressive Sires’ winner Anamoe
