Exciting Amelia’s Jewel The Quokka 2024: Redemption Time For the Superstar?

Amelia's Jewel seeks redemption in the second ever running of The Quokka after going agonisingly close in the very first edition last year, but chances dealt a cruel blow with wide barrier draw.

Amelia’s Jewel is favourite for The Quokka (1200m) this Saturday at Ascot.

Amelia’s Jewel is second up and potentially having her final run for Simon Miller before heading East. She is favourite to farewell WA with a win, sitting as a $3.20 favourite.

Bella Nipotina is at $4.40 on the second line of betting, with smart WA three year old Oscar’s Fortune representing the home state at $8.50 sharing that price with visitor King of Sparta.

The second running of the $5 million The Quokka is on Saturday and the final field and barrier draw have been revealed with Amelia’s Jewel drawing less than ideal.

Amelia’s Jewel has again drawn wide in barrier 12, after drawing 14 of 14 last year when she ran second.

Can Amelia’s Jewel win and gain redemption for an unlucky 2nd place last year?

Bella Nipotina has the best form on offer to beat Amelia’s Jewel has landed the visitor’s draw in barrier 13, while last year’s winner Overpass has drawn well in barrier 6.

Top local hopes Ripcord and Oscar’s Fortune have drawn beautifully and will look to back up Amelia’s Jewel as the home state tries to win its first Quokka.

BARRIER DRAW WINNERS AND LOSERS

WINNERS: King Of Sparta has drawn to get a suck run in behind the speed from gate 4. Last year’s winner Overpass has drawn well in 6 so he won’t need to work too hard to settle in the first two or three. Three-year-old Oscar’s Fortune has drawn well in 3.

LOSERS: The task for Amelia’s Jewel and Bella Nipotina has become tougher with their wide barrier draws.

Amelia’s Jewel will get back anyway, but how far back is now the question.

Bella Nipotina has run well from wide barriers previously, but she too will be giving away a decent head start to the leaders and does she have the turn of foot of Amelia’s Jewel.
