Cameron Handicap 2023 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Open race. Skyman is racing well and gets a good map to be able to pounce on them late. Luncies mixes form but is in this off its win 2 starts back. No Compromise has claims if finding its best. Democracy Manifest brings good form to the table while Palmetto is lightly raced and has more upside than most of these.

Cameron Handicap 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Skyman (11)

Running well and finds the right race. Should get a nice tow into the race and just needs a good ride to be going close.

2. Luncies (13)

Strong win 2 starts back before a very plain effort last start. Respect off the win 2 back and monitor any market moves for it.

3. No Compromise (3)

Likely looking for further but always capable of figuring in a race like this.

4. Kukeracha (4)

Prefer over further.

5. Mount Popa (14)

Needs further.

6. Democracy Manifest (10)

Racing well and the gun jockey does the steering. Looks well up to these and brings good form to the table. Hard to beat.

7. Palmetto (9)

Lightly raced and has good upside. Drawn to give this race a shake and looks to have more to come than most of these. Top 3 chance.

8. Aramayo (12)

Prefer others.

9. Looks Like Elvis (6)

Form has tapered off.

10. Vreneli (15)

Can lead them up and prove hard to reel in. Track patter is vital towards its chances.

11. Inver Park (7)

Comes out of the right form race and gets the young gun Gibbo to steer. Big claims in this and should get a nice tow into the race.

12. Laure Me In (8)

Can’t have.

13. Political Debate (2)

Best form sees it go close and has a kind map. Keep an eye on market moves for it.

14. Spangler (1)

Barrier 1 not ideal for its racing pattern but is up to these on class. Will be banking on the gaps.

15. Glint Of Silver (5)

Knocking on the door this prep and finds the right race and a good draw. Hard to beat in this.
