Silver Shadow Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Heavy Weather: Fine

Lots of hopes. Estriella bumped into a smart one last start and is well placed in this field. Suited with Kah in the saddle and will take beating in this suitable race. Platinum Jubilee should take beating from the kind draw and has strong formlines to boot. Zardozi has plenty of class and will prove hard to hold out at a very likeable price.

Silver Shadow Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Lazzago (14)

Likes this track and has a pinch of class about it. Can go close in this field. Hard to beat.

2. Kristilli (10)

Has shown good promise to date. Market watch here with an ideal booking of J-Mac.

3. Platinum Jubilee (6)

Should be up on the speed and take some beating. Well placed in this field and should prove hard to hold out.

4. Autumn Ballet (3)

Has some strong form lines and maps for a dream run. Nicely placed in this and looks a shade over the odds at $10.00

5. Kimochi (12)

Excellent last prep and has a neat turn of foot. Good chance in a winnable race.

6. Inhibitions (4)

Prefer others.

7. Zardozi (13)

Has enormous upside and was brilliant all last prep. Sticky map but the one to beat.

8. Taormina (2)

On the up and gets its chance from the draw. Has claims.

9. Amazonian Lass (11)

Prefer others.

10. French Endeavour (8)

Can’t have.

11. Estriella (5)

Likeable last start run beaten by a smart one. That form should hold up here in what is a very strong race.

12. Summer Loving (15)

The form around Coincide has stood up okay. Not hopeless despite the draw.

13. August Bloom (7)  – SCRATCHED

14. Private Legacy (9)
