Heritage Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Very good race. Ozzmosis is untapped and puts the unbeaten record on the table. Royal Tribute has done little wrong to date. Has good upside and should land up right on the speed. Nadal is nommed elsewhere but hard to beat if the stable elect to run here while Celestial Legend is untapped and can win this fresh from the Les Bridge yard.

Heritage Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Barber (9)

Brings in the experience and has a very good fresh record. Form tapered off a little bit last prep but kept on ice for this and has large claims for a first up win.

2. Namesake (4)

Sound form lines around it. Gets a kind map and a win in this wouldn’t shock.

3. Kristilli (3)

This is a leap in grade. Prefer others.

4. Ozmosis (7)

Racing in very good fashion and unbeaten to date. Untapped and the stable have a high opinion of this one. Goes on top.

5. Celestial Legend (8)

Excellent last prep. Strikes the right race here and just needs even luck from the draw to go close.

6. Nadal (5)

Dual nommed. Having an excellent prep and gets the right race here. Maps well from the draw, should get a gun run and has large claims.

7. Stanislaus (2)

Can’t have.

8. Royal Tribute (6)

Having a very good career to date and can maintain that record in this. Maps to lead them up with Tim Clark in the saddle and is a major player in this suitable race.

9. Fire Lane (1)

Drops in class and gets the gun run. Keep safe and respect any market moves.
