Which Horse Will Win The Herbert Power Stakes
The best way to pick who will win the Herbert Power 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:
- Distance Experience – This race is definitely for the stayers. See if you can find one coming off a strong performance in something like the Turnbull Stakes or the JRA Cup.
- Single Figure Hopes – Horses offering double digit odds haven’t done too well in this race, so you might want to try and back a horse offering a single figure pay off.
- Handicap Helper – Look for a horse carrying light weight, if they have just come off a win or a place in their last race, the handicap could be an advantage.
