City Tatt’s Club Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field. Serpentine is capable of figuring fresh. Maps for the right run on speed. Military Mission goes in the mix and will just need a pinch of luck from the barrier. Kirkeby has class and will take beating from the Waller yard while Verona has to deal with the tough draw but is putting together a handy record.
