There is a big showdown between PALACE PIER and BAAEED to come from Ascot on Saturday.

This is probably going to be the race of the day as Palace Pier looks to deliver the odds in Queen Elizabeth II Stakes racing betting.

Palace Pier 7/4 FAV in Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Racing Odds

Can PALACE PIER hold off a high-class rival on the weekend at Ascot? The 4-year-old is the favourite to get the win.

Palace Pier is at a quote of 7/4 in Queen Elizabeth II Stakes racing odds* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

There has been just one defeat in 10 starts for Palace Pier and that one loss was in last year’s renewal of this fixture.

Palace Pier, unfortunately, lost a shoe in the contest.

But he has been back on his game, completing a four-timer since with a score in France two months ago. It’s just been more dominant form by him.

Palace Pier is a five-time Group 1 winner and with consistency and superb preparations behind him, he could still be the one to beat.

Can Baaeed defend his unbeaten record?

The up and coming BAAEED looks something special and is a quote of 9/4 in horse racing betting* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

Considering that he only made his debut in June his rise has been nothing short of meteoric.

Baaeed has shot up the ranks as one of the best 1 milers in Europe.

There was a strong Group 3 win for him at Goodwood, before following up to complete the 5-timer in the Prix de Moulin.

Baaeed is facing the highest quality opposition that he has come up against in his short career. So this is going to be a test on another level for him.

But to help out, he gets 3lb from Palace Pier which should help and it’s going to be fascinating to see what Baaeed can do at the top level.

The Revenant warrants respect again

There was a victory in last year’s Queen Elizabeth II Stakes for THE REVENANT who again warrants respect.

He is a quote of 9/1 to double up in this particular race* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

Arguably the conditions don’t look ideal for him on the weekend, but The Revenant has a good record in this fixture as he was second in 2019 as well.

The Revenant stayed in sharp form with a runner up in the Prix Daniel Wildenstein two weeks ago.

He has something to offer and place claims are there.

Masters Of The Seas brings place claims

MASTER OF THE SEAS has put a good consistent season together, winning one of four outings for the campaign.

That lone success was in the Craven Stakes but he did almost land the 2000 Guineas as well. He was touched off by a short head in the latter by Poetic Flare.

The latest run that Master Of The Seas had was in the Joel Stakes, in which he produced a third-place finish.

So he looks to be in very good heart at the moment and the hood comes off for his run at Ascot on Saturday.

There are place claims there for Master Of The Seas at 17/2* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

Can Alcohol Free challenge?

There have been three successes for ALCOHOL FREE this season and one of those was at Royal Ascot in the Sussex Stakes.

So that suggests that claims are there for Saturday’s return to the venue.

He got the better of Poetic Flare in that previous Ascot run, showing a great turn of foot to close out the deal.

Alcohol Free was last seen at the International at York two months ago. That was on a 1m 2f trip and he didn’t stay in that one.

So the drop back to a 1m trip for Saturday could see Alcohol Free get himself involved in things from a quote of 8/1* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

Rest of the Runners

BENBATL has done well this season with a second in the Celebration Mile and a victory in the Joel Stakes. He is no forlorn hope and retains plenty of ability still as a 7-year-old.

LORD GLITTERS is five without a win since scoring at Meydan earlier this year. This is a big challenge for him at the very top level, however.

NJORD is thrown in the deep end here as he looks to land his first win of the season. He did land a course and distance win last year in the Balmoral Handicap. It’s hard to see him making an impact in this, however.

LADY BOWTHORPE is a likeable mare and landed the Dahlia on her reappearance. She was second to the Palace in the Lockinge.

There was a Group 1 score at Nassau for her to follow as well, but was well below her best last time out. If she runs to true form, then place claims are not unreasonable for Lady Bowthorpe.

MOTHER EARTH is a good consistent sort and it has been Group 1 action all the way for the fill this year.

Her big moments were victories in the 1000 Guineas and the Prix Rothschild then in August. She hasn’t been out of the places in Group 1 efforts this year.

Predictions & Tips for Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Racing Odds

We just think that the preparations for PALACE PIER look well on track for him to go out and deliver the win he should have taken last year in this.

Bad fortune came his way in losing a shoe otherwise he probably would have remained unbeaten.

He’s high quality and Palace Pier is arguably the best miler around in Europe right now and is a 7/4 player* (odds recorded at 18:45 GMT on October 15th, 2021 at William Hill).

BAAEED is massively hyped, highly regarded and rightly so. He has just gone from strength to strength to move to the top of this class.

But this is going to be his toughest challenge yet without question. Place claims are easily there.

The final shortlist selection for Queen Elizabeth II Stakes betting is BENBATL who is still well capable of producing high-quality performances.

Strong efforts in the Celebration Mile and the Joel Stakes surely gives him a chance at the money spots on the weekend.
