Toowoomba Weetwood Handicap 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

All eyes on Yellow Brick who looks classes above this field. The barrier is a slight concern but does look the right price and will take a stack of beating. Situation Room is the main danger and was an impressive winner lats start finding the line very well. All That Pizzazz has a few lengths to find but is racing well enough for a placing while Ned’s Gully goes in the mix for a place from the good draw.

Toowoomba Weetwood Handicap 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Holyfield (14)

Brings in good form and can land up on the speed. Place chance in this field.

2. Yellow Brick (11)

Looks the winner. Unlucky not to have beaten Redeiner at the end of last prep and that is super form for this. Just has to be within striking range to take this out.

3. Bonaparte (8)

Can’t have.

4. Roman Aureus (15)

Prefer others.

5. Doctor Zous (9)

Needs to lift.

Mixing form too much lately. Prefer others.

7. Noah ‘N’ A Deel (12)

Can’t have.
