Percy Sykes Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open affair. Strong claims to Tiz Invincible to turn the tables on the favourite in this after having no luck when wide first up. It maps for a beautiful run in transit. Autumn Ballet was excellent on debut and gets its chance to go on with things with Tim Clark sticking and barrier 1. Lazzago will be in the finish with some strong form around it. Kimochi returned in good order and can take this out while chances also lie with Bossy Nic and Ethereal Star also should be around the mark.

Percy Sykes Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Lazzago (7)

Drops back in grade and has a good set up here. Will get a nice tow into the race and is well placed against this lot with form around Facile.

2. Bossy Nic (5)

Excellent last start win and the form around is stacking up. Maps Kindly and Dean Holland does the steering. Right in the mix.

3. Autumn Ballet (1)

Good debut kicking clear to win and should get its chance from barrier 1. Short enough in the market but hare to beat with a good set up here.

4. Ethereal Star (8)

Racing well and gets a winnable race here. Damian Lane is an eye catching booking. Keep safe.

5. Everlong (6)

Nice debut win but leaps a few grades here. Leaning to others.

6. Kimochi (3)

Brilliant return winning easily. J-Mac is a strong push to its chances and maps for the right run. Hard to beat in this company and has been well backed in early markets.

7. Shine Your Light (4)

Prefer others.

8. Captain Amelia (10)

Prefer in something easier.

9. Kristilli (9)

Can’t have.

10. Tiz Invincible (2)

Like it at a very good price. No luck on debut and should get a much kinder run in this. Avdulla steers from barrier 2 and nicely weighted. Love its chances and has a very good chance in this.
