Denise’s Joy Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good  Weather: Fine

A lot to like about the win of Spring Lee when resuming. Can go right on with things here and looks a big hope. Commemorative will need some luck from the draw but has good claims in this. Martini Mumma was a drifter in the market fresh but won with good authority. Open race with a host of chances.

Denise’s Joy Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Ballroom Bella (13)

Racing okay but will need some luck from the draw. Has okay form lines for this but on a bit of a drift.

2. Saltaire (12)

Hard horse to catch but has the ability. Looks under the odds but can take this out with even luck.

3. Blanc De Blanc (10)

Hard to catch lately but is more than good enough. Will get a nice tow into things from the draw and looks well placed here.

4. Lazzago (3)

Can’t have.

5. Commemorative (14)

Will need luck from the draw but racing in very good fashion in stronger races than this. Maps tricky but Lloyd rides and this race does look suitable.

6. Oz Empress (4)

Can’t have.

7. Zia (11)

Prefer others.

8. Sicilian (15)

Returned and got there by a head on the line in a BM72. Much harder here but progressive type that can measure up to this.

9. Queen Of The Mile (8)

Can’t have.

10. Gold Lover (17)

Prefer others.

11. Invasive Dreams (1)

Can’t have.

12. Fuld’s Doubt (7)

Sneaky hope at odds and liked the last start win. Maps okay from the draw and can give this a shake.

13. Martini Mumma (2)

Defied the drift to return with a superb win. Still on the up, gets a lovely run in transit and looks well and truly up to these.

14. Spring Lee (9)

Massive win when resuming by rounding them up in style. Will need a bit of luck navigating in the big field but does enter this with large claims and is still very progressive.

15. Greyzous (16)

This looks too tough.

16. Left Field (19)

Can’t have.

17. Shine Your Light (6)

Not horrid at $201 off the back of the effort 2 starts ago. Can win.

18. Fire Lane (18)

Can’t have.

19. Cigar Flick (5)

This looks too tough.
