Spring Champion Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Top pick hard to beat in this field. Maps well from the good draw and should be hard to beat in this race. Raf Attack has plenty of upside and looks well suited to this field. Ganbare hasn’t seen its ceiling and has the upside to take this out. Port Lockroy won well last start. Much harder here.
