Blamey Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Tough race to sort. Atishu is going to need a good ride from barrier 11 but has the class and runs on the board. Ayrton is hit and miss these days but best is more than good enough. Carini creates interest with a winnable weight and Damian Lane. Makram was a smart winner fresh and can win off that. Gap to the rest.

Blamey Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Bustler (15)

Can find the placings and has okay form for this. The wide draw is a concern.

2. Atishu (11)

Class runner of the race that maps okay given his racing pattern. Shinn steers and he is in sensational form. On the drift but well placed here.

3. Future History (6)

Can land on the speed and give a sight fresh. Not hopeless against this lot and barrier 6 should ensure a nice run in transit.

4. Muramasa (8)

Scored multiple wins in a row last prep. Can give this a shake fresh and looks well placed against this company.

5. Ayrton (1)

Mixing form these days but gets barrier 1 and Kah is 5/9 aboard. This race does look winnable on paper.

6. Riddle Me That (9)

Leaning to others.

7. Captain Envious (10)

Can’t have.

8. Makram (12)

Enormous surprise winner fresh when swamping them and winning convincingly. The market will have a say late but no reason he can’t win again.

9. Holymanz (3)

Can’t have.

10. Panfield (7)

Import from HK that is a market watch here. Can give this race a shake despite the slightly awkward draw.

11. Berkeley Square (4)

Maps well but getting hard to catch. Capable and should get a good run in transit. Also suited to the rise in trip.

12. Suizuro (13)

Can’t have.

13. Cadre Du Noir (2)

Prefer others.

14. Carini (14)

Lightly raced runner that has the services of Lane to negate the wide draw. Goes in the mix here and can give this race a shake.

15. Arale (5)

Can’t have.
