W.J Adams Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Va Via comes up favourite. Hard to beat but short enough in this field. Gets the in form Lane to steer and looks suited to these. Katsu can lead them up and plenty to like about the first up win. Has to concede weight here but is 2/2 second up and is well placed. Najem Suhail has to find some to beat the favourite but maps well and is a chance. Foxicon rounds out the chances.
