Helen Coughlan Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

A wide open affair. Brookspire comes up favourite and can return a winner in what is a suitable race. Extremist will need luck from the wide barrier but looks well placed to give this race a shake. Roots will also need luck from its draw but can figure in this field while Sneaky Five is capable of pulling out a large run and can beat these.
