ATC Trophy 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wide open market. Brigantine will need plenty of luck from its draw but Godolphin are having a great season and it should prove hard to hold out. Far Too Easy was brilliant on returning and goes in the mix. Salateen is classy when on song and Ucalledit can also give a bold sight in an open race.
