Frank Packer Plate 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Saltcoats doesn’t win out of turn but has the ability to take this out. Kintyre is also due for a win but should be around the mark in this. Tannhauser was beaten but the barrier in the Carbine Club Stakes and will very much appreciate a good draw here and J-Mac doing the steering. Anderson Bridge looks suited rising in trip. Plenty of other hopes.

Frank Packer Plate 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Tannhauser (3)

Brilliant run last start and looks very much suited with the kind draw. J-Mac steers and this race is very much within reach. Waller should have it ready to go and looks the deserving favourite.

2. Noisy Boy (15)

Can’t have.

3. Saltcoats (7)

Doesn’t win out of turn but does look well placed against these. Just the 1 win from 8 career starts but never far away and does strike the right race to notch up another one.

4. Kintyre (1)

Kintyre maps for a lovely run from barrier 1 and should be hard to beat in this field. Admittedly is D-day and well and truly due for another win but should do no work in the run and does get the right race here.

5. Gold Bullion (4)

Can’t have.

6. Ravello (10)

Leaning to others.

7. Anderson Bridge (8)

Was sound last start and making good ground late so looks suited rising in trip. This race suits and should get an okay run from barrier 8. Should give this a shake at good odds.

8. Bullets High (6)

Can’t have.

9. Uncle Harry (13)

This looks too tough.

10. Jacob’s Time (11)

Leaning to others.

11. Texas Fireball (14)

Will need some luck from barrier 14 but had no luck last start and that form looks good for this especially off the back of chasing Wymark who is highly progressive. Nash sticks and this race suits.

12. Harlow Mist (12)

Can’t have.

13. Our Gold Hope (2)

Gibbons rides from the good draw and was only 4 lengths off Orchestral last run which reads nicely. Zardozi has franked the form since and that might be good enough to get away with this.

14. Coto De Caza (5)

Prefer others.

15. Wizards (9)

Can’t have.
