JHB Carr Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Magic Time was very impressive remaining undefeated last start and can go on with things here. Opal Ridge is well placed from the draw and will take some beating while Olenita has claims from barrier 1 and has come back well this prep.

James H B Carr Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Magic Time (7)

Outstanding win last time and can repeat in this. Just needs a tow into the race at the right time to take plenty of beating. Big respect in this field.

2. Renaissane Woman (6)

Will get back and run on but has good claims in this field. Clark steers and this race is within reach.

3. Opal Ridge (3)

Not muh luck last start and finds the right race to bounce back to form in. Expect a bold showing from the good draw and it brings the right credentials to be taking this out.

4. Avebury (2)

Can’t have.

5. Sumatra (8)

Had no luck fresh and should be the big improver in this race. Over the odds and in the mix.

6. Mumbai Jewel (9)

Prefer others.

7. Portray (4)

Needs to lift but suited from barrier 4 and should be around the mark at big odds.

8. Olentina (1)

Thrown in the deep end in this but must be respected by Waller with the placement here. In the mix.

9. La Pittrice (5)

Can’t have.
