Ajax Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Glory Daze was able to beat Grebeni which is good form for this. Democracy Manifest will be running on and knows where the finishing line is. Phearson got the job done for us at big odds and can do the same here from barrier 3. Detonator Jack will be motoring late and has the class to take this race out but can be hard to catch.

Ajax Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Cepheus (13)

Can’t have.

2. Detonator Jack (2)

Will be hitting the line hard and has the class factor to give this race a shake and should get a nice run in transit.

3. Phearson (3)

Landed the win for us at good odds last start and can go right on with things here from the good draw. Well placed and hard to beat.

4. Bold Mac (11)

Can’t have.

5. Democracy Manifest (5)

Prolific winner who maps well and gets J-Mac steering. Right in the mix and was a pass mark fresh.

6. Just Folk (14)

Can’t have.

7. Palmetto (9)

Prefer others.

8. Welwal (10)

Import that landed the win fresh. Had a good run in transit but no reason it can’t win again.

9. Hezashocka (1)

Prefer others.

10. Ceasars Palace (12)

Can’t have.

11. Glory Daze (8)

Maps for a good run, gets the services of Gibbons and looks well placed in this field. Should give a bold sight in this field.

12. Robusto (4)

Had no favours last run but kept coming. Nicely weighted, maps well and has large claims in this. Goes right in the mix.

13. Amor Victorious (7)

Winning machine that has built a superb record. Hard to beat again and maps for the right run.

14. Territory Express (6)

Can’t have.
