WJ Healy Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Prince Of Boom was a strong last start winner. Comes up favourite in this and should roll across from the wide draw and take plenty of catching. Quantico raced flat last start but gets its chance to bounce back. Ranges maps well from the draw and should give this a shake while King Kapa is having a strong winning run and gets its chance in this field. Plenty of hopes in this.
