The Golden Eagle 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wide open race and a very intriguing affair where Chris Waller trains 5 of the 20 runners. Hawaii Five Oh will get every chance from the draw and looks well placed in this field. Amelia’s Jewel was too bad to be true last run but finds the right race to bounce back in. Legarto was a good winner last start and goes in the mix. Kovalica is probably looking for further now but has claims in this field while Osipenko ticks boxes and can give this a shake with the right run in transit.

1. Hawaii Five Oh (4)

Hard to knock this runner who gets the good draw and looks well placed in this field. Sure to be in the finish.

2. Attrition (19)  – SCRATCHED

3. Pericles (1)

Will need the gaps at some point but having a great prep and drawn to do no work. A good steer will be crucial to its chances.

4. Golden Mile (18)

Tough draw and needs to lift off last run. Can’t have.

Very smart galloper but barrier 16 requires a few things to fall into place. Would prefer over further but very hard to knock the form its in.

6. Redeiner (3)

Having a great prep. The good draw suits and should give this a shake.
