Flight Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Hard to knock the way Tiz Invincible is going and will be hard to beat again in this field. French Endeavour made good ground late off Tiz Invincible last time they met and looks well placed with the extra trip. Mollynickers brings in the different formline and while barrier 1 may not suit her pattern she does just need luck at the right time to figure. Kimochi is having an honest prep and also goes in the chances.

Flight Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Tiz Invincible (13)

Just keeps winning but is now drawn out and will need a pinch of luck in the run. Very hard to knock and looks the one to beat yet again.

2. Kimochi (8)

Has been around the mark this prep and overdue for a win. Has a slight map advantage over the favourite and goes in the mix.

3. Tropical Squall (6)

Sound effort in the Tea Rose last start. Should roll forward and suited by any on pace bias on the day. Top 3 chance.

4. Miss Jolene (7)

Can’t have.

5. French Endeavour (4)

Lovely effort last start making good ground off Tiz Invincible. Suited by the rise in trip, gets a good draw, gun jockey and looks well over the odds.

6. Summer Loving (11)

Becoming hard to catch and needs a bit to go right in its races. Leaning to others.

7. Mollynickers (1)

Well backed in early markets and brings in the different form. Should be able to camp close from the draw and goes in the mix in this.

8. Captain Amelia (10)

Can’t have.

9. Private Legacy (5)

Prefer others.

10. Tutta La Vita (3)

Should be ready to peak and maps for the dream run. Suited by this trip and race, can win.

12. Unique Ambition (12)

No luck last start but drawn out wide here so will need a bit to go right. Respect any market moves late. Top 3 chance.

13. Hasty Honey (9)

Can’t have.
