Alan Brown Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Cepheus will be hard to hold out from the kind draw. Racing well and should prove hard to beat. Waterford has been costly but its best gives this a shake. Argentia is an interesting runner and should have every hope from the draw while Palmetto is racing in good fashion and strikes a winnable opportunity here.
