Bill Carter Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Competitive field with a few chances. Russian Alliance continues to win and is hard to knock on recent form. Primed to take this out. Queen Of Dragons brings in some very nice form lines and can give this race a shake with even luck from the draw. Makena has good claims from the Waller yard while Certainlycan is a market watch fresh.

Bill Carter Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Russian Alliance (1)

Just keeps on winning. Maps to do no work and can keep the winning streak alive in this.

2. Party For Two (2)

Should be primed for this race and maps for a good run. Hard to beat in this field.

3. She’s A Rogue (8)

Went close last start and can go one better in this but will need some luck from the draw.

4. Abounding (11)

Maps tricky but measured up very well last start and can bring that form to this. Major player despite the awkward gate.

5. Mighty (10)

Can’t have.

6. Within Reason (2)

This looks too tricky.

7. Salt Lake Betty (3)

Prefer others.

8. Szabo (15)

This looks too tough.

9. Zia (13)

Solid debut run and gets the services of Tim Clark. This race is well within reach.

10. Avone (5)

Sound run last start. Keep an eye on the market for any moves. Should give a bold sight in this.

11. Infancy (14)

This looks too tough.

12. Queen Of Dragons (4)

Goes on top. The form around Militarize reads enormous here. Maps for a good run and looks very hard to hold out in this winnable affair. Like its chances.

13. Makena (9)

Solid effort last start and wouldn’t have to lift much to take this out.

14. Miss Shu (6)

This looks too tough.

15. Certainlycan (7)

Market watch here fresh. Kept safe in early betting.
