ATC Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wide open field. I’mintowin is having a good prep and will be hard to topple in this. Foxy Cleopatra maps to get every hope from barrier 4 and should give this race a shake. Wineglass Bay can be hard to catch but is capable at its best. Plenty to like about the last start win of Toesonthenose who can handle the rise in grade while King Of The Castle is more than up to these.

ATC Cup 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Superium (3)

Barrier 3 looks too tricky for him with his racing pattern as he likes room to move. Can’t have.

2. Wicklow (6)

Due for another win. Best efforts has him going close and finds the right field here. Suited up in trip and is a top 3 chance.

3. King Of The Castle (5)

Racing in excellent form this prep and gets a good chance from barrier 5. Hard to beat.

4. Baby Rider (11)

Prefer others.

5. Foxy Cleopatra (4)

Has been around the mark this prep with 2 seconds and looks primed to win with the kind draw. Hard to hold out in a race of this depth and is an appealing price.

6. Wineglass Bay (10)

Tough to catch but good enough to trouble these with the right run. Keep safe.

7. Camaguey (9)

Prefer others.

8. Toesonthenose (8)

Racing well and put away a decent field last start. Can handle the rise in grade and will prove tough to beat with some luck from the barrier.

9. I’mintowin (7)

Having. good prep and still has plenty of upside. Tim Clark is in good form and barrier 7 should ensure a tow into the race. Hard to beat.

10. Excelleration (1)

Maps for a gun run from barrier 4. Has nice form on the board and is well placed.

11. Wyclif (2)

Prefer others.
