Aspiration Quality 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Many hopes. Thalassophile has a tough draw to contend with but has the ability to figure in this. Lekvarte knows where the winning post is and goes in the mix. Osmose maps well and can give this a shake while Pierossa has claims and is one of the leading chances in what is a wide open race with plenty of winning propositions.
