Southern Cross Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field. Lady Laguna comes up favourite but does look short enough in early markets. Hard To Say has come of age this prep and is well placed here. Malkovich has plenty of speed and can lead them up while Baller has claims to be pouncing on them late and could prove hard to hold out in the dying stages.

Southern Cross Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Baller (8)

Can flash at them late and brings some class to this field. The wide draw is suitable for its racing pattern and this field suits. Hard to beat against this lot.

2. Malkovich (2)

Speedy customer that will lead and be hard to beat. Goes in the mix and is over the odds.

3. Lady Laguna (7)

Under the odds in this even race. Going well this prep but much harder here.

4. On The Lead (5)

Can’t have.

5. Fifteen Rounds (1)

Prefer others.

6. Hard To Say (3)

Going well and brings in some strong form. Maps well from barrier 3 and Gibbo steers. Likeable.

7. Lady Of Luxury  – scratched

8. Kristilli (4)

Can’t have.
