Winter Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Plenty of hopes in this. Cisco Bay is racing in excellent fashion and gets its chance in this field. King Of Hastings has been a model of consistency and should give this race a shake. Longvillers will be around the mark and is having a good prep while Ucalledit has strong claims and looks suited to this field. 11 of these come through the same race last start, the Listed Civic Stakes.
