Winter Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Good race. Al Aabir was luckless last start and can atone here. Spirit Ridge will land up on the speed and give a sight. If Herman Hesse can find its best form it is in the mix while Pesto can be hard to catch but is capable. Tempo looks solid with Spirit Ridge likely to roll forward.
