Royal Randwick Exciting Championships Day 2

Royal Randwick races Day 2 of the Exciting Championships featuring Mr Brightside, Cascadian, Pride of Jenni and Group 1 2 year old Golden Slipper winner Lady of Camelot returns

Day 2 of The Championships at Royal Randwick features four more Group One races, headlined by the Queen Elizabeth Stakes where Australia’s weight-for-age stars will clash.

Last start Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) winner Via Sistina remains a firm favourite for the Queen Elizabeth after drawing barrier five in a field of 11 at Royal Randwick with All Star Mile winner Pride Of Jenni drawn barrier three, Pride Of Jenni has gone to another level this season.

She was beaten by Cascadian last start in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) who also lines up here at Royal Randwick from barrier six and Godolphin representative Darren Beadman praised the nine-year-olds longevity.

Meanwhile, Ben, Will and Jd Hayes are hoping stable star Mr Brightside can bounce back at Royal Randwick after a disappointing fifth in the Australian Cup, with Ben Hayes suggesting the horse will appreciate softer conditions having pulled up very well from his defeat.

The field for the Group 1 Sydney Cup also at Royal Randwick took a hit after previous market fancies Post Impressionist and More Felons didn’t accept, leaving Saturday’s Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2600m) winner Circle Of Fire as the $4.50 favourite despite drawing barrier 15 of 17.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Military Mission has no easy task, carrying top weight of 56.5kg and also drawing the widest barrier at Royal Randwick, but Adrian Bott says the $15 chance is ready to run well.

The final field for the $5m, Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday. One of Australia’s richest races and most historic, won by some of the very best racehorses in its time including the mighty Winx on numerous occasions.
