Luskin Star Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Some of these are double nommed. Waihaha Falls is due for another win and finds the right race for that. Opal Ridge gets the services of Dylan Gibbons and has the form on the board to give this race a shake. Tamerlane continues to win and run well this prep while Titanium Power can give a bold sight out in front and Oscar Zulu goes in the mix from the kind draw.

Luskin Star Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Eleven Eleven (2)  – SCRATCHED

2. Oscar Zulu (6)

Capable of winning this fresh from the good draw and suited by the conditions. One of the many chances in this.

3. Gravina (4)

Hard to catch and needs another win. Capable but leaning to others.

4. Tamerlane (16)

Just keeps winning and can notch up another win here. The in form Collett does the steering.

5. Titanium Power (8)

Can land on the speed and give a sight. Mixes form but can pinch this if left alone up front.

6. She’s All Class (1)  – SCRATCHED

7. Waihaha Falla (14)

Needs another win and gets no favours from the draw. Classy runner but is becoming costly on punters and is short enough in this.

8. Blondeau (11)

Wouldn’t shock at all fresh. Suited by the conditions and has a booming turn of foot. Keep an eye on the market and watch for Blondeau to be rattling home late.

9. Opal Ridge (7)

Has the right form for this race and Gibbo steers. Nommed elsewhere but should be hard to beat wherever it goes.

10. Barellan Bandit (10)

Can’t have.

11. Purple Sector (3)

Hard to catch but is right up to these on best form. Keep an eye on the market.

12. Rubamos (5)

Capable Waller runner who can jump out of the ground in this. Hard to beat.

13. Steely (9)

Should land near the speed and give a sight. Some chance.

14. Meritable (13)

Import that gets a gun jockey on OZ debut and is a market watch here.

15. Harrow (15)

Can’t have.

16. One Aye (12)

Prefer others.
