Missile Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open race with a few of these resuming. Big Parade maps well and should prove hard to hold out fresh. This race is well within reach. I Am Me has plenty of ability and is drawn to get all the favours from barrier 1. Rocketing By is sneaking under the radar at large odds and will take beating in this field. Golden Mile is a market watch fresh while Ingratiating was back to its best last run and should be hard to beat.
