The Silver Eagle 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Yellow Brick has plenty of ability. Just missed fresh and can go one better in this. Pericles has come back well this prep and will be hard to beat again. Benedetta brings in some Victorian form and does look well placed in this field. Ruthless Dame has a stack of class and should be in this for a long way while Kibou can bounce back after a poor run last start.
