2022 WJ HEALY STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Prime Candidate can work over from a wide gate to lead. The last time KING OF SPARTA (8) raced in Queensland he ran on hard to win the Magic Millions Guineas. He is a progressive gelding who races well at this distance and has yet to miss a place fresh. He will be ready to go off two Sydney trials.

SHOOTING FOR GOLD (5) caught the eye running on to be beaten 1.4L in the Moreton Cup last start. Has a 50 per cent strike rate here and has won three of five attempts at the distance. He is ready to peak fourth up. RANGES (4) dug deep to win at Listed level last start in his first visit to this venue. Proven third up so could go on with it.

ALPINE EDGE (12) is another that is now race fit now and he hasn't been far away this campaign while BALLER (1) cops a big weight but is still a player off a G2 win.
