Belle Of The Turf Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Lekvarte is in fine form and will be hard to hold out again in this suitable affair. Finepoint has proven hard to catch over time but has the quality to take this out. Zoe’s Promise has been well tried in early markets and can give a sight in this field while Ita goes in the mix with the light weight.

Belle Of The Turf Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Finepoint (1)

Been an enigma to catch but does no work from the draw. Keep an eye on the market.

2. Lekvarte (8)

Racing in super fashion and can notch up another win here. Doubt the track suits its pattern but hard enough to beat on the back of two very good wins. Goes mighty close if the track is playing fair.

3. Zenzella (10) – scratched

4. Zoe’s Promise (6)

Well tried in early markets and Gibbons steers. Good enough to win this and maps well. Hard to beat.

5. Rebel Rama (9)

Can pull out a big run occasionally. Keep an eye on the market.

6. Ita (11)

Having a good prep and has solid form on the board. Goes in the mix.

7. Missy Moola (7) – scratched

8. Burning Need (5)

Good last start win. Goes in the mix.

9. Arale (3)

Prefer others.

Prefer others.
