AD Hollindale Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Zaaki is the one to beat having won this race the past 2 years and will take a power of beating again as the market reflects. Atishu is on the next line of betting from the Waller camp and can run a bold race here while Diamil and Skyman both have smaller claims.

AD Hollindale Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Zaaki (10)

The clear horse to beat in this field. Should land on the speed and prove very hard to get past. Marked the clear horse to beat and the price is fair enough.

2. No Compromise (2)

Can’t have.

3. Huetor (7)

Has been tricky to catch of late. Has place claims in this at best.

4. Zeyrek (3)

Decent drop in class here and comes up with a good map and draw. Will have to find to beat the favourite but has decent claims if Zaaki is having an off day.

5. Diamil (4)

Will enjoy a strong tempo here and maps for the gun run from barrier 4. Putting together back to back wins has to be some query for Diamil but hard to pot the way it is going.

6. Skyman (1)

Showed off a neat turn of foot to salute last start and does no work from barrier 1. Tackles a harder race here but has claims off the strong last start win.

7. New Mandate (13)

Good win last start but much harder here. Prefer in something easier.

8. Kolding (8)

Can’t have.

9. Bankers Choice (6)

Prefer in something easier.

10. Just Folk (9)

This looks too tough.

11. Desert Icon (11)  – SCRATCHED

12. Cepheus (12)

Prefer in something easier.

13. Bois D’argent (5)

Can’t have.

14. Atishu (14)

Danger to the favourite. Capable of running a bold race but will need a bit to go right from the draw. Nash is an ideal booking and if Zaaki is having an off day this is his main challenger.
