Alister Clark Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good  Weather: Fine

Open field engaged. Quintessa has claims but will need luck from the draw. This race suits. Basilinna brings nice form to the table and should give this a shake. Verdad goes in the mix and maps nicely while Apulia can lift back to form off the back of a lacklustre first up run and is nicely placed in this company.

Alister Clark Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Apulia (14)

Needs to lift off the first up run to figure but has class and is good enough to bounce back.

2. Zipaway (1)

Maps well and is nicely placed against this lot. Should get a lovely run in transit and can give this race a shake.

3. Sunsets (17)

Tough draw but well placed here. Allen knows the horse well and this race is suitable.

4. Verdad (7)

Maps well and has good form for this race. Can figure with the right run in transit.

5. Antrim Coast (13)

Can’t have.

6. Snow Patrol (6)

Heavily tried fresh and landed the prize. Maps for a good time of it from barrier 6 and can waste no time chasing horses like cars. $11.00 is fair enough.

7. Gates (18)

Can’t have.

8. Rose At Dawn (15)

Having a good prep and just needs luck from the barrier to figure. 15 doesn’t make things easy but this race suits.

Those that can land the odds for Jon Bon are bound to have a nice day! Should be in the mix and has good upside.

10. Shinjuku (4)

Can’t have.

11. Freight Train (2)

Good run last start but much harder here. Capable type but short enough.

Brings in some great form for this and well placed against this company. Maps well and this race suits.
