Lord Mayor’s Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Thalassophile brings in the right form and should be hard to beat with the gun jockey aboard. Navajo Peak has been around the mark and should give a bold sight. Wicklow goes in the mix and Lord Admore loves racing on this track and is good enough to take this out.
