Number 5 Dolce Zel (5-2) has run well in all five grass course starts since arriving in the country. Chad Brown’s filly runs well and projects a decent tactical trip as a deserving favourite. She trains forward for this and Irad Ortiz Jr. recently made a profit with this barn.
Number 6 Majestic Glory (6-1) raced well to clinch a minor prize in the Pebbles Stakes on September 18, and runner-up Gina Romantica won the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup on her next outing. Luis Saez recently won races with Todd Pletcher.
9 Sparkle Blue (12-1) added blinders and won the Christiana Stakes in her first start this year, and she finished second to the Virginia Oaks last time out. She is definitely faster this year and should keep pace while being clear.
