2020 Queen Elizabeth Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Another race where the internationals lead up the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Addeybb loves the wet and is a $4.40.
Easily the main highlight of the afternoon with this year's Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Speed looks solid enough.
ADDEYBB (2) proved too strong late for Verry Elleegant in his Australian debut and suspect he can only improve further off the back of that effort. The wetter the better with him and from the inside draw Marquand could put him where ever he wants. Rates well and should prove hard to beat.
On exposed form DANON PREMIUM (1) is the best horse in this race, however he has to be a question mark on wet ground. If he handles the track, they will certainly know he is there. TE AKAU SHARK (4) gets the synthetic hoof filler for the first time, which is a big query, but the step up in trip is a big tick and he remains under strong notice, while VERRY ELLEEGANT (12) is simply airborne and has to be respected.

1st – 2 Addeybb
2nd – 1 Danon Premium
3rd – 4 Te Akau Shark
4th – 12 Verry Elleegant
2020 Sydney Cup: Tips And Race Preview
Sticking with the English in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Sydney Cup, Young Rascal can outstay these at $2.50.
Good competitive affair at the top end of the weights with the in-form stayers set to fight out this year's Group 1 Sydney Cup. Just an even tempo anticipated.
YOUNG RASCAL (2) did too well in his Australian debut when taking out the N.E. Manion Cup. This has always been the Grand Final and he is proven to handle all conditions. Has a touch of class on his side and with Marquand sticking aboard (2/2), he should prove very hard to beat.
RAHEEN HOUSE (4) won well last weekend and certainly appears back on track. Appears well placed at the weights and looms as a major threat. MUSTAJEER (1) gives weight away to all of his rivals, but is racing in career best form and shouldn't be far away. GALLIC CHIEFTAIN (5) closed off well enough last weekend and appears the next in line.
2020 SYDNEY CUP – SELECTIONS
1st – 2 Young Rascal
2nd – 4 Raheen House
3rd – 1 Mustajeer
4th – 5 Gallic Chieftain
2020 ATC Australian Oaks: Tips And Race Preview
Class to the fore in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 ATC Australian Oaks, Probabeel is good odds at $4.
A field of 14 faces the starter in this year's Group 1 Australian Oaks with the leading market hopes tipped to fight out the finish. Just an even tempo anticipated.
PROBABEEL (1) only went down narrowly in the Vinery and is clearly the class filly of the field. A question mark at 2400m, but she is still very hard to knock and improving track helps her. Wide draw leaves Bosson with options and her class should carry her a long way.
SHOUT THE BAR (2) took a big step forward last start when winning the Vinery and only looks to have to repeat that level of performance to be right in the finish again. COLETTE (4) beat the 'B' graders with ease last weekend and do like the set up on the quick back up. Has to take another step, but she is hard to knock. NUDGE (3) closed off well in the Vinery and appears the next in line.

1st – 1 Probabeel
2nd – 2 Shout The Bar
3rd – 4 Colette
4th – 3 Nudge
2020 Coolmore Legacy (Queen Of The Turf) Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
The 3yo is on top in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Coolmore Legacy (Queen Of The Turf) Stakes, Funstar has a good set up at $2.80.
The final of four Group 1 races with 17 set to face the starter in this year's Group 1 Coolmore Legacy Stakes. Good speed engaged and expect a true tempo over the mile.
On face value FUNSTAR (17) was disappointing last start in the Vinery Stud Stakes when finishing fourth. Effort prior was very good and she sets up well dropping back to the mile. Alizee followed the exact same path last year and Funstar is arguably better performed at the same point. Has gate speed to overcome the wide draw and should prove hard to beat with McDonald sticking aboard.
NETTOYER (2) did an amazing job in the Doncaster last weekend and only looks to have to repeat that level of performance to be right in the finish again. She is flying. POSITIVE PEACE (9) is another mare who is simply airborne and is very hard to knock, while MISS SISKA (4) can also front up dropping back in trip.

1st – 17 Funstar
2nd – 2 Nettoyer
3rd – 9 Positive Peace
4th – 4 Miss Siska
2020 Arrowfield 3yo Sprint: Tips And Race Preview
Want to back the colt over the fillies in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Arrowfield 3yo Sprint, Cosmic Force will be fav around $3.50.
Highly competitive sprint contest with a number of talented 3YOs set to clash in this year's Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint Stakes. Speed everywhere, they should fly in this.
COSMIC FORCE (1) never look comfortable in the Group 1 Galaxy last start when safely held as the well supported favourite ($3.50). Comes back a few pegs here and he has trialled very well since. James McDonald takes over and he is expected to bounce back in a big way.
FLIT (9) went far too hard in the All Star Mile last start and remains under strong notice on the fresh side (28 days). The blinkers come off and she is more than capable. VILLAMI (11) had excuses last start and obviously rates well on her first up win, while CALIFORNIA ZIMBOL (12) also holds claims off a last start win.
2020 ARROWFIELD 3YO SPRINT – SELECTIONS
1st – 1 Cosmic Force
2nd – 9 Flit
3rd – 11 Villami
4th – 12 California Zimbol
2020 Sapphire Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Godolphin will play a big role in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Sapphire Stakes, Savatiano is hard in the betting at $4.40.
Wide open affair to round out the day's proceedings with a host of leading chances in this year's Group 2 Sapphire Stakes. The large field should ensure a solid tempo.
SAVATIANO (3) wasn't beaten far in the Galaxy last start after racing on-speed. Much better suited back up to 1200m and rates very well off her first up win. Some query over whether she can maintain that form deeper into her campaigns, but is worth sticking with. JMac back aboard another push.
FASIKA (7) got caught on the wrong part of the track last start when closing off well late in the Galaxy. Much better placed here and looms as a major threat. I AM EXCITED (1) is weighted up to her best now, but is clearly flying, while MANICURE (9) also holds solid claims second up.
2020 SAPPHIRE STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 3 Savatiano
2nd – 7 Fasika
3rd – 1 I Am Excited
4th – 9 Manicure
2020 Fernhill Handicap: Tips And Race Preview
The favoured runners head the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Fernhill Handicap, Untamed looks to keep the Snowden babies form at $2.30.
Not a lot of depth to this opening event with the leading market hopes tipped to fight out the finish. Speed looks solid enough.
UNTAMED (2) really caught the eye first up when just peaking on his run late behind Holyfield. He returned good figures there and suspect he can only improve further second up. Drawn to settle closer and should prove hard to beat with Nash sticking aboard.
POSTCODE (1) took full advantage of the drop back in grade last start when far too good at Hawkesbury. On the quick back up and has to be respected. AZALY (3) closed off well on debut at Kilmore and while up sharply in grade, he is promising along with FAYERRA (4) who is capable.
2020 FERNHILL HANDICAP – SELECTIONS
1st – 2 Untamed
2nd – 1 Postcode
3rd – 3 Azaly
4th – 4 Fayerra
