Show County Quality 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wide open field. Extremely Lucky showed good promise last prep and should get its chance from barrier 6. Kalino is hard to knock and has come back in super form. Rocketing By had no luck last run and is looming around large odds while Buenos Noches has good claims from the ideal barrier with Dylan Gibbons doing the steering.

Show County Quality 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Buenos Noches (5)

Has some very strong formlines and gets the gun jockey to steer. Should be able to give this a shake fresh.

2. Ucalledit (9)

In flying form but much harder here. Leaning to others despite the market support.

3. Rocketing By (2)

No luck last run. Loves racing on this track and can surprise these at a price. Likeable claims.

4. Sky Lab (4)

Has claims fresh. Keep an eye on the market.

5. Zougotcha (7)  – SCRATCHED

6. Argentia (10)

Excellent first up run. Should give this a shake despite the wide draw and is well placed in this field.

7. Dragonstone (1)

Consistent and should get every chance from the barrier and in this field. Goes in the mix.

8. Fender (3)

Can’t have.

9. Kalino (8)

Racing in super form. Looks well placed in this field and can give these something to think about. Strong claims against this lot.

10. Extremely Lucky (6)

Has strong form lines and looks poised in this class. Can give this a shake but is short enough.
