French Emotion has returned to racing in exceptional form this time and remains outright $3.90 favourite in 2016 Queen Of The South Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

French Emotion has only made eleven competitive appearances at the races since debuting during the autumn of 2015, but has more than stamped herself as one to watch in posting four wins and seven minors; yet to finish outside the first three.

Resuming this time for four-consecutive wins in minor Melbourne sprints, the Snitzel mare ran second in the Ladbrokes Bet Better BM90 (1300m) on April 9th before again finishing just off the pace of Scarlett Billows in the Gold Distaff (1400m) on April 16th.

French Emotion will undoubtedly require luck in running from barrier 16 but is sure to receive a gem of a ride from Craig Williams.

Metaphorical is yet to herald much interest in 2016 Queen Of The South Stakes markets but remains sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $4.60 for success.

While yet to break through for a black type win, Metaphorical has impressive through a busy career thus far; posting four wins and ten minors through twenty-five competitive starts.

Resuming this time for second in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) on March 12th, the daughter of Dylan Thomas ran on for third in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) last time out on March 24th.

Metaphorical is weighted for success at only 55kgs but will also require luck from the outset after drawing barrier 14.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently available at 2016 Queen Of The South Stakes odds of less-than $10, Into The Mist ($6.50) arguably offers punters the best value for money following her ideal draw of barrier 5.

Running second in the talent-rich Group 3 Ladies’ Day Vase (1600m) most notably during a strong spring campaign, Into The Mist took a couple of runs to find form upon resuming this time, but savaged the line for third in the Adapt Australia BM78 (1500m) on March 24th.

Having taken out the Eddie The Eagle BM90 (2600m) by close to four lengths last time out, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice will be partnered by last-start Jason Holder in the Queen Of The South Stakes.
