Doncaster Prelude 2024 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Another Wil looks a big hope in this field. Hard to hold out and the market reflects that. Amor Victorious has good upside and goes in the mix. Rustic Steel is off the back of a strong win and looks nicely poised in this field. Von Hauke has good talent and also brings in some strong form.
