Neville Selwood Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Zeyrek comes up favourite and has been a model of consistency this prep. It will take beating the way it has been going. Sunshine Rising has good claims despite the awkward gate. Benaud has a touch of class and can spin into the placings while Huetor is an interesting runner and does look well placed coming back to the track it enjoys.

Neville Selwood Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Huetor (5)

Strong chance despite an average prep thus far. 1/1 over this track and trip and that should spark improvement. The booking of Zahra is ideal.

2. No Compromise (11)

Brilliant first up run but very poor last start. Its chances are take on trust but its more than capable of taking this out.

3. Magical Lagoon (10)

Prefer others.

4. Gear Up (4)

UK stayer that can give this a shake. Strong jockey booking and a kind draw is ideal.

5. Sunshine Rising (8)

D-DAY but racing well enough to take this out. Nash is an ideal booking. Hard to beat.

6. Zeyrek (9)

Racing well this prep and just needs to overcome the wide draw to be hard to beat. This field suits and Tim Clark is an ideal booking. Goes on top.

7. Fancy Man (7)

Can run well fresh but prefer to see deeper into the prep. Respect any market moves.

8. Third Realm (1)

Likeable stayer who brings in some good form and maps for a kind run. Respect and be guided by any market pushes.

9. Benaud (6)

Should enjoy the cut out of the ground and set to improve third up in this with the good barrier and Prebble steering. Has claims if finding its best.

10. Cadre Du Noir (2)

Likely needs the run again, respect any market moves.

11. Athabascan (3)

Racing honestly enough and is in kindly at the weights. Solid chance here.
