SHE’S JUST QUALITY made a debut full of promise when only going down by a length over 5f here last month and could have much more to offer today, especially now stepped up to a route. However, Unforeseen, Gloriously and Wicked Mercury are serious dangers.
GOLDEN PAL was only picked up in the dying strides when a promising second on debut here last month and rates the one to beat with that run under his belt. Congrats Again and Espia are feared most.
Paynter Fest and La Tres Jolie both hacked up over C&D in their latest, but preference is for downgraded duo Bimini and COUNTENANCE. The latter is progressing well and gets the nod taking a notable drop in class for her Gulfstream bow.
MORNING STRIDE deserves to get his head back in front after a narrow miss last time and supporters will be pleased to see Irad Ortiz Jr keeps the ride. Twenty Four Seven heads the list of dangers from Cowboy Culture.
Any money for the newcomer Dr. Samadi would be interesting, but our preference is for experience and BOURBON STREET looks the one to be on. If punters can look past one bad run last time, his form is strong in the context of this race. Ten Miles High must also be considered.
JAXON’S GOLDIE boasts a progressive profile and the early dash he displayed when finishing third over an extended five furlongs at Santa Anita in March suggests this greater speed test will play to his strengths. Weekend Dreamer has finished runner-up on his last two starts and ought to be thereabouts with the class dropper Mr Nappy also respected.
DON’T GET KHOZY sauntered clear to score by nearly six lengths over an extended six furlongs here earlier this month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Pick Up The Fone has joined Todd Pletcher since her latest second over track and trip, and she rates the biggest danger ahead of Words Of Devine.
Alpilles made all to spring a surprise over C&D, but she is unlikely to be able to dictate terms to suit herself here – especially if the returning Sugar Bolt is raring to go. They could set it up for PALACE TWO STEP, who wasn’t at her best last time but is fancied to bounce back.
Wild Medagliad’oro can build on his good comeback effort, while Gray Beau had First And Three and Roman Empire behind him when runner-up over a mile here. It might be worth risking the fitness of NO GETTING OVER ME, who has held his own in really good company and has been freshened up since his last outing.
STAR OF STARS may not have been seen in competitive action since his successful debut almost 11 months ago but such was the impression he created there, he is worth chancing. Dillon Rocks was a couple of places in front of Youshouldbesolucky when third last time and looks the logical danger.
