Winx Guineas 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Soothsayer has been around the mark all prep and gets its chance in this field. Hard to pot the way Grebeni is going about things and the form around it is stacking up nicely. Crafty Eagle was just fair last run but can bounce back against this lot. Chairman is a market watch while Robusto is capable of pulling off a big run on its day.
