I agree - but as usual with any discussion on grades, it comes down to two things - strengths and weaknesses. What feels hard for one person will feel easy for another. My advice is if you're trying to break into 23, go and find one that you think plays to your strengths. Once you've done a couple of them, then try some that you're not so suited to. Also something that tends to get overlooked quite a lot these days - there's easy, benchmark and hard in every grade. For instance, compare Taste of Honey (21) to Kachoong (21), Boy Racer (22) to Cecilia (22), Despatched (23) with Cellular (23), Horrorscope (24) to Allez (24), and The Flashing Blade (25) to The Undertaker (25). The list goes on.
