Talindert Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

A bit to learn in this. Wolfgang has solid QLD form and goes in the mix. Aardvark resumes and has form around Coleman which bodes well for a race like this. Champagne Tonight has come up early favourite and has trialled well. Eject is a first starter from Godolphin but the camp are having a dry patch at the moment.
