2023 Claire Lindop Stakes Runner by Runner

1. Zoe’s Promise (1)  –  SCRATCHED

has 2 wins over 1600m

2. Zennzella (8)

In the Spring she won the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes then was 4th in the Group 1 Kennedy Oaks. She resumed from a spell for 7 lengths 7th in the Group 3 The Vanity over 1400m at Flemington. Goes well second-up and is right in this.

3. Kiki Express (4)

Was runner-up over 1400m at Morphettville Parks last start. Has a good record at this track. In the mix.

4. More Reward (12)

Resumed from a 23 week spell for 3 lengths 6th over 1400m at Morphettville Parks on 18 March. Prefer others.

5. Brazen Lady (10)

Joined the lead at the 300m and drove hard late to win by a narrow margin over 1300m at Sandown Lakeside on 8 March. Not the worst.

6. As Time Goes By (6)

She has ran 2nd at her last 2 starts (Pakenham and Ballarat) , both over 1400m, and has been chasing solidly. One of the main chances.

7. Party Princess (11)

Won a 1200m maiden plate at Strathalbyn on 8 March, then was a 0.7 length winner over 1400m at Morphettville Parks on 18 March. Likely to settle back in the field and can run well again.

8. Billie Bronx (5)

Has won both of her starts by good margins. Callan Murray retains the ride and she should be hard to beat.

9. Rich Result (15)

Ran on strongly for a narrow win over 1400m at Bendigo last start. Barrier 15 won’t help.

10. Field The Moment (3)

Covered ground throughout and battled gamely for 3rd in the Listed Morphettville Guineas over 1600m at Morphettville on 13 March. Ones of the main chances.

11. Anphina (2)

Has 4 starts at this distance without running better than 4th. Looking elsewhere.

12. Bonnie Gangster (13)

Last start winner at Strathalbyn. This is much harder.

13. Imbibe (16)

Has drawn the outside barrier. Can surprise.

14. Arugamama (7)

Has a win and 2 places from 4 starts. Not the worst.

15. Dual Fuel (14)

Prefer others.

16. Pretty Reliable (9)

Prefer others.
