Australia Day Cup 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Naval College will take beating in this field and is having a superb prep so far. The price looks fair enough and it ticks all boxes. Yankee Hussel will need luck from barrier 12 but can give this race a shake. Love Tap has to lift on form but bets efforts are good enough while Great House also mixes form but its best sees it in the finish.
