Sweet Embrace Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Manaal looks very hard to beat off the back of chasing Lady Of Camelot. That form looks superb for this. Castanya was a good last start winner. Chateau Miraval also showed plenty of fight on debut to win from the very in-form Waterhouse Bott yard. Wave Breaker has form around Manaal and looks a solid place chance.

Sweet Embrace Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Manaal (6)

Brilliant run fresh and looks very hard to beat from barrier 6 in this easy race. Bullish it wins.

2. Castanya (14)

Nice last start win but won’t be easy from barrier 14. Goes in the mix but the draw makes things tricky.

3. Totoka (10)

Can’t have.

4. Chateau Miaraval (8)

Good upside and kicked hard on debut to win. Harder here but likeable signs when breaking maiden and Clark sticks.

5. Photographics (3)

Prefer others.

6. Extreme Diva (13)

Can’t have.

7. Wave Breaker (4)
