A number of runners in this race are coming off impressive last-out scores. Come Dancing (#6) may go favored as she puts her undefeated record on the line after compiling two wins that were spaced apart by 13 months. She clearly possesses some talent, but she was allowed to set a slow pace (indicated by blue color-coding in TimeformUS PPs) when winning last time and I think she’s going to encounter a trickier situation here.

I prefer DIVINE MISS GREY (#4), who has steadily been running faster races over the course of this year. Since coming into Danny Gargan’s barn in May, she has finished worse than second only once in 7 starts, and that came in the Grade 1 Test. Most recently, she earned a field-best 118 TimeformUS Speed Figure for her optional claiming win in December. I’m not concerned about the slight turnback in distance since she’s handled shorter trips in the past. Her tactical speed and versatile running style make her dangerous.

I’ll also include Going for Broke (#1) in my wagers. If the early pace heats up, she should be picking up pieces late. At an even bigger price, another closer that I would throw in is Kalabaka (#10). She’s had to deal with layoffs recently, but she should like getting back on a fast track.
