Randwick Race 9: Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2000m

10/04/2015: In what should be a terrific race we'll opt for Criterion on an each way basis. Criterion is already a Group 1 winner in wet conditions and looked unlucky not to have won last time out when suffered early interference. Criterion has a perfect barrier for big time race rider Craig Williams and should give backers a real sight. Race favourite Contributer will offer strong resistance and is racing in rare form. This gelding has swept all before him in recent runs and will be looking for 4 wins on the trot. Maybe a query in the going. Cox Plate winner Adelaide is unbeaten in both starts on wet ground and if can replicate his finishing burst of that race will take no end of holding out. Japanese runner To The World is unknown in wet ground but loves this distance and can certainly go one better than his Australian debut 2nd. Stablemate Tosen Stardom won his only start in the wet and has won this distance. Put in a good performance also at debut run this country and can make presence felt. Royal Descent backs up quickly here from Monday but handles the wet and is never far away in big races.

Randwick Race 9. RaceTime: AEST 16:35, 11/04/2015

Front Runners (7) Fiveandahalfstar.
On Pacers (1) Beaten Up, (2) Aomen, (11) Tosen Stardom.
Mid Fielders (4) Criterion, (13) Contributer, (3) Red Cadeaux, (5) To The World.
Get Back (8) Lucia Valentina, (10) Royal Descent, (9) Happy Trails, (6) Spillway, (12) Adelaide.
PACE COMMENTS Fiveandahalfstar is certain to lead this lot with only Tosen Stardom being in single figure odds of all the 4 listed on pace runners. Criterion should sit off that quartet but no surprise to see him right up there from a top draw of gate 4. Contributer will look to settle around mid field with Criterion firmly in his sights. Cox Plate winner Adelaide may have to produce another barnstorming finish to round these up as too will all the other listed backmarkers. Pace assessment is genuine.
