Don Casboult Classic 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Very open race. Inhibitions maps well from barrier 6. Countyourblessings has good upside and comes off a strong last start win and can measure up to these. Gumdrops has good ability and was a pass mark fresh. Platinum Jubilee will need a lot to go right from the wide draw but looks well placed in this field. Brazen Style rounds out the chances and can give this race a shake.

Don Casboult Classic 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Platinum Jubilee (17)

Big drift since markets have opened. Keep an eye on them for its chances fresh but not an easy task from out there.

2. Lazzago (18)

Can’t have.

3. Brazen Style (12)

Has good upside and looks set to peak for the prep. Maps a bit sticky but capable.

4. Gumdrops (8)

Quality runner with some good form lines. Resumes off the back of a good prep and has strong claims.

5. Hip Hip Haurrah (13)

Just fair fresh but plenty to like about prior form. Barrier 13 is sticky but goes in the mix.

6. Inhibitions (6)

Class runner that maps better than a lot of its rivals. Barrier 6 shouldn’t pose any issues and this race looks well within reach.

7. Diamond Decorator (14)

Can’t have.

8. Dubenenko (2)

Prefer others.

9. Walk Like An Angel (3)

Racing okay but this isn’t an easy task. Leaning to others.

10. Celestial Storm (7)

Big odds here off the back of a dominant win and excuses prior. Good hope and very good price. Can win.

11. Material Dreams (1)

Can’t have.

12. Patchouli Dream (15)

Prefer others.

13. Isthmus (11)

Has notched up two good wins in a row and should have its chance in this field. Goes close.

14. Moesha (16)

Can’t have.

15. Countyourblessings (9)

Solid chance but a little under the odds here leaping up in grade and with a slightly awkward draw. Top 3 hope but expected it to be around $10.00

16. Lively (5)

Prefer others.

17. British Angel (4)

This looks too tough.

18. Bay Of Zea (10)

Can’t have.
