Mona Lisa Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

The clear favourite is Olentia and will take beating in this suitable race. Va Via has been ultra impressive this prep and can notch up another win while Short Shorts brings in different form and should be hard to hold out. Chassis tends to mix its form but its best gives this a shake.

Mona Lisa Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. North Star Lass (6)

Racing okay and should land up on the speed. Clark is an ideal booking and this race suits.

2. Olentia (10)

Hard to knock the way its going with the only query being the draw. Likeable in 4 starts to date and unlucky not to be unbeaten. Short but very hard to beat.

3. Wollombi (13)

Sound return. Looks up to these despite the draw. Respect any market moves.

4. Chassis (8))

Mixes form but is up to these and the stable usually get them right for these kinds of races. Hard to beat.

5. Short Shorts (1)

Racing well last prep and gets barrier 1 and the in form jockey. This race looks suitable.

6. Va Via (11)

Very hard to knock this prep. Gets a wide barrier but is a line finder and can notch up another win with the leading jockey booked. Hard to beat.

7. Diamond Dealer (12)

Stable is flying but would be a surprise. Place hope.

8. Banana Queen (5)

Need to see more this prep.

9. Beour Bay (2) – SCRATCHED

10. Mirra View (4)

Can’t have.

11. Sanstoc (7)

A shade over the odds. Did some good things last prep and can bob up in this at a big price.

12. Speak Up (3)

Maps well and looks nicely placed here. Respect any market moves.

13. Anagain (15)

Can’t have.

14. Byron Belle (14)

Liked the return run. Likely to run Saturday with the better barrier.

15. Zorocat (9)

Can’t have.
