The Roses 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Starliner goes on top. Enormous run in open company last prep and has come back super this time around. The $27.00 is looming around a large price. The best version of Fireburn would be very hard to hold out in this race. Premise is going along well and should be hard to beat while the favourite Renaissance Woman has good upside and will do no work from the draw.

The Roses 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Fireburn (10)

Its best would take this out but has been plagued by tricky draws constantly and is much the same here. Needs luck but can win.

2. Wolverine (21)  – SCRATCHED

3. Renaissance Woman (1)

Excellent win last start and hard to knock off the back of that. Should be hard to hold out and gets all the favours from barrier 1.

4. Tyresa (2)

Can’t have.

5. Noah’N’ A Deel (17)

Prefer others.

6. Premise (4)

Having a consistent prep and gets its chance in this from the good draw. Hard to hold out if it can secure a good run in transit and this race is ideal.

Racing very well and finds the right race here. Will need some luck from the barrier but good enough to go close.
