Albury Cup 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Multiple scratchings so the race has fallen apart a bit. Miracle Spin is well placed. Maps well from barrier 6 and this race is suitable. Fawkner Park is well placed in this company as well and the market reflects that. Blackcomb will be hitting the line hard and can camp behind those two. Regal Lion goes in the mix and has good upside. Danish Fortune will need luck from the draw but is also well placed.
