Which Horse Will Win The Colin Stephen Quality Handicap
The best way to pick who will win the Colin Stephen Quality Handicap 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:
- Sydney Stayers – Local horses, especially those with lots of Rosehill Gardens experience at 2,400 metres, should do well in this one.
- Weight Watchers – Be careful when betting on a horse that won their last race, due to the quality handicap they could be carrying more weight then that can pull.
