Great race for the Queen Elizabeth, with a clash of good form on short backup against lighter, raced targeters. Four standouts on the SFR, so we narrow our focus to these runners, and the obvious form leader is Jaameh finishing 2 lengths off third in the Melbourne Cup. He should also settle just off an average pace, and fly home through the 400 and 200 marks. The strongest turn of foot over a Flemington 2000m can’t be ignored. The danger is Libran and Casterton who both have a strong turn of foot but may get too far back and the slower speed may tilt the tables to the on pacers. Besides, the Waller and Weir show need to throw one to Lindsay Park every now and then to keep it interesting. 7 days? That’s why they give you odds.
Jaameh to win.
