Spring Folly (#3) and Cumbria (#7) finished second and third last time behind Goodbye Brockley, who will seek to win a stakes later on this card. That race was dominated by horses who rode the rail, and all three of these fillies spent the majority of their trips racing inside. Spring Folly at least finished well, indicating that she shouldn’t have much of an issue with the added distance.

I’ll use them, but I want to take a shot against this pair with the 3-year-old PURELY LUCKY (#1).

As a daughter of Lookin At Lucky, I’ve felt that the longer, the better for this late-running filly. She just got outrun last time going seven furlongs in what was a very quick race. It also didn’t help that she was buried inside behind tiring runners at the quarter pole and had to pick her way through traffic. Purely Lucky showed promise as a 2-year-old but was undone by a lack of focus on a few occasions. She’s been more professional this year, and she’s drawn the perfect post position for this distance on the inner course.
