Arrowfield 3YO Sprint 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

What You Need heads the market and will take plenty of beating. It looks to remain undefeated and finds the right race to continue the streak. Aft Cabin is heavily in the market but again looks very short and for the third time in a row more than happy to oppose it in this. Swiss Exile can bob up in this at odds while Zou Tiger should be around the mark. Kote and Economics round out the chances with good claims at odds.

Arrowfield 3YO Sprint 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Aft Cabin (6)

Gross under and the only reason I can see it winning is by finding the fresh last prep win. Has been beaten by Zou Tiger twice since who is over double the price. Can’t have it at those odds.

2. Zou Tiger (5)

Beaten by Aft Cabin fresh then beat it the next 2 starts. Absolutely right in the mix off that and gets the kind draw. Should be far closer to those well in the market.

3. What You Need (8)

Hard to beat. Untapped and brings in the different form lines which is some query but the ceiling hasn’t been seen yet. Very hard to beat in this.

4. Kote (12)

Racing around the mark and unbeaten over this track and trip. Handles sting out of the ground and Nash sticks on the ride. Solid claims.

5. Sacred Santono (4)

Cant have.

6. Swiss Exile (10)

Decent roughie. Mixes form a little but can show up at odds and has a nice second up record.

7. Economics (2)

Hasn’t shown up this prep. Respect any market moves.

8. Cool Jakey (13)

This looks too tough.

9. Paris Dior (3)

2nd to Benedetta 2 starts back and pulled up lame last start. We are too quick to sack horses off one poor run. $19.00 is large.

10. Lady Laguna (11)

Prefer in something easier.

11. Dashing Legend (9)

Can’t have.

12. Wee Nessy (7)

Been around the mark this prep but harder here. Prefer others.

13. Midnight In Tokyo (1)

This looks too tricky.
