Which Horse Will Win The Ethereal Stakes

The best way to pick who will win the Ethereal 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:

  • Straight Shot – At 2,000 metres, this race has a lot of straight on which first place can be won or lost, look for a horse that can gain the lead down the straight.
  • Step Down Performers – As a Group 3 race, this race should attract a few horses that have downgraded from Group 1 and 2. Look for any runners who should overperform at the Group 3 level.
