Sky High Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Lindermann should get its chance from the good barrier and has J-Mac doing the steering. This race suits. Just Fine should be able to lead them up and give a sight. Will be strips fitter for the first up run. Muramasa is going along well and has been tried in early markets with a gap to the rest.

Sky High Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Arapaho (6) – scratched

2. Explosive Jack (7)

Classy runner but he will want further.

3. Lindermann (4)

Going well this prep and looks poised from barrier 4 to take this out. Short enough in the market but rates very highly and looks hard to hold out.

4. Just Fine (5)

Danger to the favourite. Can land up on the speed and give a sight. Should be strips fitter from the first up run and is nicely placed in this company and the stable are firing.

5. Stockman (9)

Needs the rain.

6. Kalapour (8)

Can’t have.

7. Muramasa (1)  – scratched

Strips fitter for the first up run and knows where the line is. Maps to do no work and goes in the mix.

8. Athabascan (2)

This looks too tough.

9. Hopeful (3)

Prefer others.
