Which Horse Will Win The Zeditave Stakes

The best way to pick who will win the Zeditave 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 consideration are as follows:

  • Lack Of Lead Ups – There are not really any black-type races in the lead up to this race which focus on three year old colts and geldings, so you’ll need to train your sights to lower classed races. 
  • Weight Watchers – Because this race is using the set weights with penalties system, wise punters should pay attention to which horses gain weight relief, and which are carrying more than their usual load.
