George Ryder Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Think About It ran 2nd last start but lost no admirers. Hard to beat and well placed in this field. Militarize had its chance fresh but brings in some commendable form. Lady Laguna is having a super prep. The form around Fangirl reads super and this race looks the right target. No knock on Veight who shown plenty of ability to date and goes in the mix.
