Golden Rose 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Fantastic field engaged. Charm Stone has been good for followers and can notch up another win in this. Cylinder overcame traffic to win impressively last start and looks hardest to beat. Encap was a strong winner last start and can go on with things. King Colorado lost no admirers with a fantastic run in the Winx Stakes and should be flying late. Shinzo gets the services of UK jockey Ryan Moore and demands a stack of respect while Militarize is within the chances.

Golden Rose 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Militarize (2)

Hard to knock. Gets the good draw, map and magic man in the saddle. Top 3 chance.

2. Shinzo (10)

Has been ultra impressive to date and kept on ice for this. Requires a gun steer from barrier 10 but this race is within reach.

3. Cylinder (6)

Found the line extremely well last start after finding bother. Nash is in the saddle and is the one to beat as the market says.

4. King Colorado (9)

Superb effort in the Winx Stakes without much luck. Will get back and be rocketing home. Goes on top with the right form being brought to the table.

5. Don Corleone (5)

Needs to lift.

6. Libertad (7)

Was going well prior to last start. Respect any market moves.

7. Moravia (4)

Racing well and maps top do no work with the gun jock in the saddle. This race is within reach and brings in the Run To The Rose form.

8. Encap (3)

Won nicely for us last start aided by a superb steer. Harder here but still untapped and should prove hard to beat.

9. Butch Cassidy (8)

Can’t have.

10. Nadal (13)

Thrown in the deep end by the stable but having a fruitful prep and looks well up to these. Can win.

11. Snapback (11)

Can’t have.

12. General Salute (12)

This looks too tough.

13. Charm Stone (1)

Maps to do no work and has good claims in this field. Tough win last start but a slight query on its form lines.
