#6 Couverture: This four-year-old filly is the main dropper with a little early speed and can be tactical. She ran an ok third last time out against better were the top two ran better then today’s Beyer par. Santana staying on hurts the price but isn’t the worst thing to see, and Moquett is bang average in dirt sprint maiden claimers at 15% but usually doesn’t do well second off layoffs.
#5 Gold N sexy: Lone speed in maiden races is always deadly. She took money at this level last time and couldn’t even hit the board. There has been an improvement in every start to her career, and this is where she belongs until she can break the maiden. She is a speedball that has had fast first quarters in her last two races that could easily be why she has faded down the lane, and today, she should make her own pace. This might be a negative key race she is coming out of as the first five runners have yet to run first or second out of it.
#4 Crown Jewel: This five-year-old mare has good tactical speed. She has shown she fits the level with two close running seconds. She needs to show she can take a step forward in the Beyer department with three 80 Beyer’s.
#6 Wildwood’s Beauty: This multiple graded stakes-placed mare easily has the best back class in the field. She just ran second in an allowance in the slop, and I feel getting back on a dry track will help immensely.
Mo Betta: I love the fact that this gelding is stretching out to those middle distances being by Uncle Mo. I feel this one needs some pace to run into might be a little closer with that extra sprint speed.
