Juvenile Fillies Turf: With an expected firm turf at 1 mile, my top pick for the race is #5 Daahyeh (GB). Bill Buick has the irons and this horse is ultra consistent going 5: 3-2-0. It's possible she may go favored, but I am seeing 4-1 on the wagering board. This may be a wide open event and there are some others that I believe you may need to add. #4 Abscond ran a gritty performance in the G1 Natalma at Woodbine and I believe she can make noise if she gets clear sailing. Watch out for #11, Sharing, as her last win was visibly impressive despite the light speed figures. I believe she can make the trifectas and if she does jump over the moon and win this, he will light up the tote board at 12-1 or greater. #10 Fair Maiden took a step back in speed figures after finishing 3rd in the Natalma Stakes behind Abscond and Walk In Marrakesh. Don't leave #12 Sweet Melania off of your tickets. My only concern is the fact that she is on the outside and needs to make a strong run to the 1st turn. If she doesn't, my concern is that she could end up several paths wide, which could compromise her running style.
