Phar Lap Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Zougotcha comes out of theGroup 1 Surround Stakes and will take a stack of beating in this with J-Mac steering from the kind draw. Madame Pommery also comes out of the same race and has a few lengths to find. Fireburn is ticking along nicely and can peak in this while Glint Of Silver has some very good form around it and can give this a shake. Call Di also goes in the mix after a luckless run last time out. The tempo looks just fair.

Phar Lap Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Glint Of Silver (8)

Big hope. I wouldn’t’ have thought so a few runs back but the last start win was brilliant and the form around Amenable and Corniche reads super here. If the favourite isn’t on his game this is the number one seed to beat it.

2. Brosnan (5)

Ticking along okay but may need another run. Respect any market moves.

3. Daytona (6)

Has been up forever and struggled to put away fields easier than this. Can’t have it.

4. Awesome John (1)

Luckless last start but may get into a tricky position again from barrier 1. The map looks awkward and this is a rise in depth. Possible place chance if the gaps open.

5. Cut On A Dime (3)

Okay in a deep race last week and draw for favours in this. Knockout hope that can run a cheeky race with Nash aboard.

6. Fireburn (11)

Keeps drawing poor gates and that doesn’t change here. Should go back from the draw and rattle home. Place chance that would be enhanced with any rain.

7. Zougotcha (4)

Good in the Surround Stakes last start and will be primed for this. The query is the record on good tracks but I am also convinced the form of last start should be too good these. Weighted Kindly and J-Mac rides. Looks the logical winner.

8. Madame Pommery (7)

Has a few lengths to find on the favourite and doubtful it can turn the tables. Place chance.

9. Revolutionary Miss (10)

No jockey booked so may be going elsewhere. Very solid behind Sunshine In Paris and doesn’t have much to find on Zougotcha in this. The barrier does make things tricky though. Top 2 chance.

10. A Lot More Love (2)

Can’t have.

11. Call Di (9)

Very unlucky last start when only getting clean air late. Whether that form will hold up in this is a query and the wide draw is a knock. Place chance but no jockey booked so may be running elsewhere.
