VRC Sires Produce Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Stay Focused comes up favourite and has form around the likes of Bodyguard which does bode well for this. Aardvark maps well from the draw and gets the services of Lane. Traffic Warden should be around the mark but has no favours from the draw. Altermatum is one that can improve at odds. Had its chance last start but the run prior wasn’t that far off Hayasugi which is good form for this.

VRC Sires Produce Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Rue De Royale (2)

Can give this a shake with Shinn and barrier 2. Looks suited by the drop in grade and should be hard to beat in this field.

2. Stay Focused (6)

Comes out of the right form race and should give this a shake. Maps well from barrier 6 and Zahra does the steering. Rates well and should be tough to beat.

3. Traffic Warden (17)

Very tough draw but has been okay since a nice maiden win. Hope at odds and good to see Kah stick.

4. Aardvark (4)

From around is strong and maps well with the very in form Lane doing the steering. Hard to beat against this bunch and looks well placed by connections.

5. Vianarra (13)

Can’t have.

6. Peru (11)

Leaning to others.
