Pam O’Neill Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Street Gossip didn’t have much luck last start and might find the same here from the wide draw but is the one to beat and is having an excellent prep. Pretty Amazing looks suited back up in trip while D-DAY would be a mighty under-exaggeration for Written Beauty who is well and truly due for a win. Tick Tock Queen goes in the mix and this looks a target race for it.

Pam O’Neill Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Dragon Queen (14)

Needs to lift.

2. Pretty Amazing (12)

Suited back up in trip but will need a bit to go right from the wide draw. Can win and looks the right price but the map is tricky.

3. Bellatrix Black (11)

Will need luck from the draw but has the class to give this a shake. Top 4 chance.

4. Zoe’s Promise (8)

Prefer others.

5.Written Beauty (16)

Has the ability but is becoming impossible to catch. Well and truly overdue for a win and I couldn’t possibly back it.

6. Dzsenifer (10)

Solid return and is up to these. Respect any market moves.

7. Media Award (15)

Can’t have.

8. Miss You Ella (6)  – SCRATCHED

9. Adelase (4)

Prefer others.

10. Drive A Deel (7)  – SCRATCHED

11. Tick Tock Queen (1)

Just needs to settle handy from the barrier to be in the mix in this. Big yes to the 1600 and does no work from the draw. Major player.

12. Frumos (3)

Hard horse to catch but up to these if it finds its best. Keep safe from the good draw.

13. Princess Rhaenys (13)

Solid return but will need an excellent steer from the barrier. Keep safe in this.

14. Podium Queen (5)

Can’t have it the way it is going.

15. Osmose (2)

Needs to lift off last run. Keep an eye on the market.

16. Street Gossip (9)

No luck last start but that may happen again from the draw. Weighted well and very genuine, just needs luck from the draw.
