Woodlands Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good  Weather: Fine

Toque will push forward and be hard to hold out. The stable are having a massive season and looks hard to hold out. Lazzura will be up on the speed and defied a betting drift to win on debut. Graceful Artist has good upside and can take this out on its way to better races than this. Let’s Go Barbie didn’t have much luck on debut and can be an improver.

Woodlands Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Toque (1)

Excellent effort first up to break maiden when returning from a spell and should be strips fitter. Can roll forward from barrier 1 and strikes the right race to go on with things.

2. Fingers Hunter (11)

Can’t have.

3. Lazzura (6)

Was a drifter in betting on debut so expecting improvement to come and plenty to like about the win. Capable of taking the next step here with Berry riding from the good draw.

4. Satin Stiletto (12)

Didn’t have much luck last start and is drawn to get clean air here from barrier 12. Goes right in the mix against these.

5. Graceful Artist (4)

Beat Blue Moves by a head on debut and that looks sound form for this. Maps well from the draw and should give this a shake.

6. Alideel (10)

Can’t have.

7. Aroha Stone (5)

Trials have been solid. Keep an eye on the market for any moves and should get its chance lobbing from the kind draw.

8. La Bella Bondi (7)

Can’t have.

9. Smashing Rosie (9)

Leaning to others.

10. Let’s Go Barbie (3)

Showed plenty of promise on debut and is over the odds at the moment. Lethal jockey and trainer combo, very good last effort and maps well. Ticks all the boxes.

11. Rivana (13)

Can’t have.

12. Zoubaby (2)

Been racing okay and maps well in this. Place chance.

13. Pensativa (8)

Prefer others.
