Phar Lap Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Makarena should be ready to peak and has the ability to take this out. Saltcoats goes in the mix but is slightly under the odds in this field. Les Vampires has the quality but will need luck from barrier 12. Tutta La Vita has plenty of class but will also require a very good ride from the wide draw. Kintyre goes in the mix and looks to get a nice run from barrier 7 while Zardozi will appreciate the rise in trip.
