How to pick a winner

Sunline Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Interesting little race with seven mares and one filly set to line up.  Deny Knowledge and Sirileo Miss should ensure this is run at a genuine tempo.  Sirileo Miss is the current favourite after bolting last start at Flemington.

Sunline Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Barb Raider

Stuck on okay for third after racing outside Sirileo Miss in the Matron Stakes.  Maps for an extremely economical run here in behind Sirileo Miss and Deny Knowledge.  Clear top 3 chance.

2. Sirileo Miss

She was awesome bolting in in the Group 3 Matron Stakes last start.  Probably has do it from outside lead this time but is well and truly capable.  She was not stopping through the line.

3. Cliff’s Art

Comes down from Sydney.  Was third in the Group 3 Aspiration last start and is another who maps for a good run.

4. Deny Knowledge

Was a strong winner of the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf at Gosford three back.  Forgive last start when the saddle slipped.  Back to mares grade now and should find the lead.

5. So You See

Was good from the back in an on pace dominated race last start.  Concerned she might end up buried on the fence needing luck.

6. Sky Horse

Resumes.  Prefer others.

7. En Francais

Has been going well over in Adelaide.  This is tougher.

8. Revolutionary Miss

Good winner of the Kewney last start against the three year old fillies.  Drawn to get last crack at them here.
