2021 TJ Smith Stakes Best Bets

Bivouac is an absolute star in the sprinting ranks and will be right in the finish if Godolphin decide to head to the TJ with him. He resumed well enough in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes for a horse that was first up and had some improvement in condition to come. Will head to the Newmarket Handicap and then possibly here to the TJ, depending on Godolphin’s pending decision to take the galloper to the UK and tackle Royal Ascot.

Nature Strip resumed in outstanding fashion when taking out the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes, looking back to his best under a superb ride from Jamie Kah. Should be heading to the Newmarket Handicap and then travelling up to Sydney to defend his TJ Smith Stakes title, and if he’s on his game on the day, he’s nigh on unbeatable.

Haut Brion Her will be targeting The Galaxy and then will likely head here to the TJ, with a perfect two weeks between runs. She’s a classy sprinter and highly rated, hence her selection in last year’s The Everest, and could be in the finish with further improvement.
