Hall Mark Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Vilana is the short favourite in the market and well placed in this field. It is unbeaten over this track and trip and has strong claims. Rocketing By is right in the mix and has the credentials to take out this race. Bacchanalia continues to win and finds the right race while Ranges will be pouncing on the speed late.

Hall Mark Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Vilana (7)

Deserving favourite who is classy and just needs a tow into the race at the right time to run over the top of this lot. Hard to beat.

2. Rocketing By (8)

Like its chances in this despite the wide draw. Suited getting back on top of the ground and was luckless 2 runs back in a race much harder than this. Goes close.

3. Bacchanalia (3)

Continues to win and can go on with that here. Hard to beat again and will get all the favours from the kind draw.

4. Ranges (2)

Maps to settle better from the draw and good enough at its best. Has a good 4th up record. Goes in the mix.

5. Gravina (6)

Loves the track and trip and J-Mac is an ideal booking. Expect a bold run at handy odds. Top 3 chance.

6. Coal Crusher (9)

Should land on the speed and give backers a good sight. Rolls forward from the draw and should be in this for a long way.

7. Juan Diva (1)

Tricky to catch and may need luck from barrier 1 with its running pattern. Prefer others.

8. Wild Planet (5)

Prefer others.

9. Waihaha Falls (10)

Expected a bit more fresh and will get back from the draw. Chances improve with any rain about and does boast a good record at the track.

10. Key Largo (4)

Didn’t get much luck last start and can improve in this. Maps for a kind run and is a top 4 chance.
