14 Run a Dubb Dubb(L) 117 No Rider 7-11-2 Persaud 15-1

Desert Bliss consistently logs fast late pace figures and should have more to give in second start since two-month layoff. White Sangria is rested and could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive handling. Neck of the Moon was a willing third when favored in last; logical.

11 Bramley(L) 118 Rosario 2-2-5 Matz 3-1

Aflutter is riding a forward line on the numbers and is bred to handle marathon trip. Bramley has finished second in three of last four starts; continues trend? Eu Bandolero made menacing middle move and flattened in debut; don't dismiss.

Kitten Kaboodle notched solid final fraction when a well-bet second in debut; more to give. Candy Kitty was just a half-length behind top selection when favored in last; very dangerous. Coronette is firing bullets for debut and is from a dam that's produced four turf winners; stay tuned to tote. Seeking Her Glory is training sharply for debut for Pletcher; obviously must consider.
