Frank Packer Plate 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

A race in two as the market suggests. Osipenko has the right form for this race. Some query at the trip but will be hard to hold out at the business end. Pericles looks well placed from the good draw and will enjoy getting back onto a drier track. Williamsburg rounds out the chances with a strong record at Randwick.

Frank Packer Plate 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Osipenko (6)

Brings in the A-one form and just needs to slot in early to be going close. The booking of Nash is a good one and this race is well within reach.

2. Williamsburg (1)

Suited back on top of the ground and maps kindly from barrier 1. Expect Williamsburg to take some beating in a winnable race. Top 3 chance.

3. Pericles (4)

Suited back on top of the ground and J-Mac has a good opinion of this one. Should be hard to hold out, just needs to keep its mind on the task to be winning.

4. My Truth (3)

Racing well and gets its chance to win again in a suitable race. Collett hops aboard for the first time and this is within reach. Top 2 chance.

5. Ain’t He Grand (2)

Should enjoy the rise in trip and maps well from the draw.

6. Mindspace (5)

Prefer others.
