J.J Atkins Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Tanhauser comes up favourite and was a strong last start winner that will get favours from the draw. Azula has been impressive to date and can notch up another win here.  Snapback was unlucky last start and can atone in this while Make A Call hails from the same stable and will need luck from the draw but has large claims in this field.

J.J Atkins Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Cifrado (7)

Racing very well and gets its chance in this field. Should prove hard to hold out.

2. Chrysaor (15)

Will need a bit of luck from the barrier but looks very nicely placed against these and with luck in running can figure.

3. Snapback (10)

Very unlucky and gets its chance to atone in this. Likeable claims and looks the most over priced of the field. Just needs a pinch of luck from the draw.

4. Make A Call (13)

Solid claims but will need a bit to go right from 13. In the mix here.

5. Congregation (5)

A pinch lucky to win last start but was still a solid effort and can only be improved off that. Should give this a shake.

6. Tanhauser (6)

Strong last start win and finds the right race here. Goes in the mix and should get a good run from the draw. Hard to beat in this field.

7. Felix The Scat (14)

This looks too tough.

8. Chevron (16)

Prefer others.

9. Californian (1)

Maps to get a nice run but prefer others.

10. Solidify (4)

No luck last start. Finds the right race to atone and gets the dream run from the barrier. Should go close in this field and has very likeable claims.

11. Purveyor (8)

Due for a win. Leaning to others.

12. King Colorado (3)

This looks too tough.

13. Trifling (2)

Maps well but decent depth here. Prefer others.

14. Azula (11)

Has the speed to offset the gate and has been racing in brilliant fashion. Hard to beat in this with even luck.

15. Miss Jolene (12)

Prefer others.

16. Within Reason (17)

Can’t have.

18. Miracle Of Love (9)

Leaps up in grade. Can win but short enough and leaning to others.
