Which Horse Will Win The C S Hayes Stakes

The best way to pick who will win the C S Hayes Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Boys Club – Look for horses who were only beaten by a length or two against fillies or mares. With the fairer sex ruled out of this race, it might just make your runner up, a winner in this scenario.
  • Early Gates – Being drawn in gates 1 through 5, is generally going to produce a favourably result for most runners.
