William Reid Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good  Weather: Fine

Imperatriz returns to the Valley where it is 4/4 at and looks mighty hard to beat. Cylinder beat Imperatriz home last run but now they meet on level weights and will need to go to another level to secure victory. Bella Nipotina should be there about with a big gap to the rest.
