Jules N Rome (#10) is the horse to beat off the claim by Rudy Rodriguez and Michael Dubb, but she faces a difficult task breaking from the outside post position in this 10-horse field. There is speed to her inside in the form of Carameaway (#3) and Perfect Freud (#7), so she may find herself in an outside chasing position.

The Pace Projector is predicting a fast pace, which figures to set things up for a closer. The late runner that I’m most interested in is DAISY CUTTER (#5).

I know she looks a little slower than her main rivals, but I think this Linda Rice trainee could be sitting on a big effort. She showed at Aqueduct that she’s best around two turns on the dirt. However, she did not get the right setup in her inner track finale, when not able to make an impact in a race dominated on the front end. Then last time, when returning from a four-month layoff, she caught a speed-favoring track (note the race rating box colored red). Linda Rice gets a 95 trainer rating with horses making their second start off a layoff, and I love that she confidently moves this filly up into a stakes race.

I would also use her with Flipcup (#1), who handles this distance but may be best on synthetic surfaces, Bella Joy (#4), who appears to be improving for new trainer Ralph Nicks, Jc’s Shooting Star (#8), who switches back to dirt after a series of improved turf performances, the consistent Literata (#9), and the aforementioned Jules N Rome.


Win/Place: 5
Exacta Key Box: 5 with 1,4,8,9,10

    Carameaway can go all the way on a day like today & Flipcup will also be hard to beat but Daisy Cutter can unseat my selections,so I’ll throw her in.
