Birthday Card Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Loads of chances in this. Zapateo leads the market and has strong claims in this. Palaisipan has been well tried in early markets and maps Kindly. Hypothetical will jump on the speed and give them something to catch and Sky Command will also land on speed and give a bold sight. Tempo looks strong with quite a few of these pushing forward.

Birthday Card Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Palaisipan (5)

Classy enough to take this out fresh and has been smacked in markets. An in form Bowman steers from HK. Top chance.

2. Sky Command (7)

Needs to lead to win. Its fate will be known early. Can win.

3. Zapateo (8)

Has the right form and maps to sit midifield with J-Mac. Hard to beat.

4. Larkspur Run (14)

Not hopeless. Has to give weight to some that it has met in the past but has very good form lines for this. Lane steers but has a poor record over this trip.

5. Jal Lei (3)

Won on protest and this doesn’t look much harder. Kind draw and map. Can win.

6. Jump The Broom (11)

In the mix and gets a tow into at the right time. Good enough to win and well weighted.

7. Written Beauty (4)

Needs the gaps but good enough to go close. Top 4 chance aided by the good draw.

8. Barossa Rosa (6)

Prefer others.

9. Nicci’s Fling (10)

Will enjoy the hot tempo and be flooding home late. Can win.

10. Ausbred Flirt (2)

Going along well but harder here. Leaning to others.

11. Midnight In Tokyo (1)  – SCRATCHED

12. Katalin (16)

Needs to lift on form.

13. Meg (9)

Can rip home off a hot speed, keep safe.

14. Hypothetical (12)

Should land on the speed and give a sight. Nice win in the mid weeks and can go on with things here.

15. Belsielle (15)

Needs easier.

16. Duchy Of Savoy (13)

Can’t have.

11. Midnight In Tokyo (1) – scratched
