John Dillon Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Yonce comes up likeable odds and should be strips fitter and hard to beat in this field. Ayrton is mixing form but hard to beat at its best. Buffalo River can lead them up and give a sight while Ka Bling has solid form lines and on its best form should be right in the mix against these.

John Dillon Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Ayrton (6)

More than capable but needs to show its best to be taking. this out. Best to use the market as a guide but the 4/5 over this trip is an appealing stat and Kah has a very good record aboard.

2. Buffalo River (2)

Can lead and will get favours from barrier 2. Prefers give in the ground but goes in the mix here.

3. Not An Opition (8)

Capable of taking this out on best form. Hasn’t placed over this trip before or on this track which are alarming stats.

4. Riddle Me That (7)

Can’t have.

5. Unusual Culture (4)

Consistent runner that likes the 1400 and should get the run of the race from barrier 4. Goes right in the mix here.

6. Yonce (3)

Pass mark fresh off a long break. Strips fitter and does have a class edge on this field. Should get the gun run and does look a big hope in this.

7. Pascero (5)

Prefer others.

8. Ka Bling (1)

Brings in some good NSW form and loves racing over this trip. Barrier 1 also a tick.
