Victoria Handicap 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field. Attrition looks a chance against these and should give this race a shake. Mertens steers and this looks well within reach. Buffalo River has been contesting some strong races and goes right in the mix. Here To Shock won’t be far away but needs to overcome the wide draw while Globe has loads of ability and looking forward to seeing what it can do fresh.

Victoria Handicap 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Attrition (9)

Classy runner that has as good of claims as any in this field. Has contested some very good races to date and has the runs on the board. Comes off an okay return run and Mertens hops back aboard. He is 1/1.

2. Buffalo River (1)

Buffalo River has been racing in superb fashion. Has proven it is more than a wet tracker and should lead them for fun from barrier 1. Has the form to give this a shake and looks a big hope.

3. The Inferno (3)

Can’t have.

4. Here To Shock (12)

Honest runner who has built a strong record. Shocked by the price here and expected it to be over double its current odds.

5. Seonee (4)

5/5 over this trip and 3/4 second up. Hard to knock on stats but others have stronger form. Place chance at best.

6. Beltoro (2)

Can’t have.

7. Flying Crazy (5)

Prefer others.

8. Edison (11)

This looks too tough.

9. Globe (7)

Star runner who got the win for us a few times last prep. Resumes off the back of some brilliant trials and had excuses at the end of last prep. Has claims in this field and looks likeable odds resuming here.

10. Let’srollthedice (10)

Prefer others.

11. Shuffle Dancer (6)

Can’t have.

12. Mr Maestro (8)

This looks too tough.
