Chief De Beers Quality 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

King Kapa is the current market favourite. Pulled up with issues last start but its best form would see it bounce right back in this. Goldsborough had to share the spoils last start and looks well placed from the good draw. Orbisyn has class on its side and will take beating while The Big Goodbye would be a nice win in honour of Leah Kilner.

2. Simply Fly (16)

Keep an eye on the market fresh. Place chance at best.

Mixes form but gifted barrier 1. Might have to cop some pressure in the lead. Place chance.

4. The Big Goodbye (7)

Honest operator that is up to these and can win. Should get a lovely tow into the are and is classy enough to take this out.

5. Axe (3)

Would give this a shake if finding its best form. Lands on speed and should give a sight.

Shared the spoils last start and gets the right map and draw in this. Hard to beat.

9. Lady Laguna (5)  – SCRATCHED

10. Greyworm (11)

Can’t have.

Good win last start but much harder here. Place chance.
