2023 Breeders Stakes Runner by Runner

1. Heuristic (4)

Beautifully bred colt from the Godolphin Stable who won last start to break his maiden after a very close 2nd at the start before. Key chance.

2. Harley’n’rose (5)

Took late ground off the winner when runner-up last outing. Must be considered.

3. Air Assault (3)

Finished midfield last start at Morphettville. In the mix.

4. Moredream (8)

One of 3 runners for trainer Chris Bieg (the others are Stupendous and Diamonds Choice). Has only raced twice and battled away for 3rd after beginning awkwardly last start. Respect.

5. Treasurway (1)

Has placed in all 5 of her races including the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders over 1200m at Flemington. Perfectly drawn and should feature in the finish.

6. Causation (6)

Did a bit wrong at her only start. Expect improvement.

7. Stupendous (7)

First starter. Watch the market.

8. Diamonds Choice (2)

Won a recent Murray Bridge trial. Prefer others.
