franjola’s impact               punter59 barn                    a reed                        even

This impressive three year old daughter of Deep Impact has seven wins in her twelve career starts including back to back Stakes wins at the “Blade Turf Filly Memorial” and “Othflys Wells Turf Filly Route”. She enters her first Graded Stakes here today but should go off as one of the favorites and compete from start to finish.

#2
epiphaneia blush                          jtlracing barn                      j cuervo                    11/1

This three year old daughter of Epiphaneia has just four starts under her belt and has finished in the money in two. She stretched things out to ten furlongs last time out and seemed to be running okay before tiring after eight. She has shown decent speed thus far but I think she might be better suited to sprint. I don’t think she will be a factor here today.

 

#3
royal thai navy                   atw2 barn                            t cooper                    8/1

This three year old daughter of Golden Horn is making a big jump here today in class and in distance as she looks for her first win. Her previous trips have mostly been at a mile with her longest being her last start when she went an extra one and a half furlongs. I am not sure the added distance will help and  do not think that she will be a factor here today.

#4
funsucker                             marky4577 barn                r wilkinsonboro     3/1

This three year old daughter of New Approach has finished in the money in five of her six career starts including three wins. She posted career best 101 speed last time out when she took home the Grade 3 “Royalmount” at this same distance. She comes in off just three weeks rest and it will be interesting to see how she responds against this field of six.

#5
bern bobby burn               bigloozer barn                    j diggs                        5/1

This three year old daughter of Bobby’s Kitten has finished in the money in six of her ten starts including four wins. She recently had a fifth place finish at the Grade 1 Sydney Oaks at this same distance. She is coming back on just two weeks rest and I am interested to see if it will affect her here today out of the five hole.

#6
tete falaise                                      sabbath4 barn                    w moss                     5/1

This three year old daughter of Le Havre has finished in the money in her last four starts including a win last time out at ten and a half furlongs in Paris. She makes a big jump here today to Graded Stakes and also is stretching it out to twelve furlongs for the first time. She has shown a speed increase in every one of her starts and will probably need  that trend to continue here today if she wants to be in contention.

  1. Thanks for the preview!

    My filly ‘Funsucker’ not in top condition going into this, and with only 3 weeks rest it’s a big ask of her to go back to back with group wins.

    Hoping she has enough for a top 3 finish though.
