Daybreak Lover Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wolverine is overdue for a win and gets its chance in this field from the kind draw. Expect it to take some beating. The Vowels brings in strong winning form and can continue on its ways in this. Speak Up should be around the mark and has been well tried in early markets. Waitak has good upside and should make its presence felt.

Daybreak Lover Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Waitak (4)

Good effort last start and goes in the mix off that. Maps well from the draw and should give this a shake.

2. The Vowels (5)

Continues to win and this is a suitable assignment. 1/1 overt this track and trip and should prove hard to hold out.

3. Fearless Knight (8)  – SCRATCHED

4. Cranky Harry (7)

Big drifter in the market and still too good for them last start. Can go on with things here and finds the right race to do so.

5. Brookhaven (1)

Needs to lift to be taking this out.

6. Bulikov (2)

Going okay but has to lift on form. Watch for any market moves.

7. Northern Decree (10)

Can’t have.

8. Wolverine (3)

Well and truly over due. He gets his chance in this field from the good draw. Needs to be taking this race out and is busting on the door for another win. Deserving favourite who maps to get every possible chance.

9. Eketarina (11)

Will need a bit to go right from the draw but has talent and 2/2 on this track. In the mix.

10. Noah’N’ A Deel (9)

Can’t have.

11. Speak Up (6)

Well tried in early markets and will prove hard to hold out. Jones does the steering and this race is well within reach. Hard to beat.
