Glasshouse Handicap 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field takes battle. Munhamek has sturdy claims and comes into this with some nice form. Aureus Angel maps well from the good draw and has claims in this field. Cepheus will take beating with a tow into the race at the right time while Blaze A Trail will need some luck from the draw but finds the right race.

Glasshouse Handicap 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Cepheus (4)

Well tried in early markets. Has been around the mark this prep and finds the right race to threaten in with the in form KWT doing the steering.

2. Sinawann (4)

Its best efforts are good enough for this and maps for a gun run with Clark doing the steering. Hope.

3. Munhamek (11)

Sticky draw but finds the right race and just needs a tow into it to prove hard to hold out. Deserves to be favourite and will take beating.

4. Gravina (10)

Has been around the mark all prep and finds the right race. Will need some luck from the barrier but should have its chance in this field and the odds look right.

5. Vinco (7)

Going along okay and has good enough claims to win this. Keep safe.

6. Namazu (16)

Prefer others.

7. Irish Songs (5)

Going along okay and gets the right jockey and map. Hard to beat at a likeable price.

8. Brookspire (17)

Past its best these days. Keep an eye on the market for any moves.

Could be tough from out there but capable of taking this out.

17. Indispensable (14)

Can’t have from out there.
