Spear Chief Handicap 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field. Military Expert has an ideal running pattern. Should plonk up on the speed and prove hard to catch. Skyman should be around the mark with even luck from the draw. Brigantine is hard to beat when on song and should give a strong sight in this field. The tempo looks decent.
