Abell Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Jungle Jim has claims from the good gate and has been racing in good fashion. Nunthorpe draws tricky but gets Lane to ride and can give this a shake. The best version of Sweet Ride would be going very close to taking this out and Willo steering is an ideal booking. Umgawa and Penthouse round out the minor chances.

Abell Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Bank Maur (8)

Capable runner but a long time between wins. Leaning to others.

2. Frankie Pinot (1)

Can’t have.

3. Sweet Ride (2)

Maps well and bring a class edge into this field. Should get the gun run and is very appealing odds against this lot.

4. Indian Pacific (5)

Class runner who is racing in good fashion in harder than this. Needs another win but well placed here.

5. Zethus (11)

Can’t have.

6. Umgawa (4)

Resumes and has claims fresh. Market watch upon resuming.

7. Jungle Jim (7)

Racing well and looks well placed in this company. Gets the in form apprentice and this race is suitable. Hard to beat.

8. Tijuana (12)

Classy runner but the map and draw look tricky. Respect any moves.

9. Nunthorpe (9)

Huge drifter in the market fresh. Light weight and Lane steers so this race suits.

10. Penthouse (3)

Looks nicely placed with the light weight and can land up on the speed and give a bold sight. Goes in the mix and looks nicely placed.

11. Ocean Beyond (10)

Can’t have.

12. Belsielle (6)

Prefer others.
