$200,000 Raven Run Stakes – Seven Furlongs on the grime.
#1 By no means
Neglect – Ridden by Robby Albarado and educated by Victoria Oliver. Two
begins again she simply broke her maiden, they usually instantly threw her into
the Grade 2 Eight Belles stakes at Churchill. She ran 3rd overwhelmed by
4 lengths in a decent efficiency. She was no match for 4 Graces in
that race although, and I anticipate this to be the identical. There’s lots of velocity in
right here and she or he can be coming from off the tempo so there may be potential to complete 3rd
once more, however that’s the ceiling right here.
Graces – Ridden by Julien Leparoux and educated by Ian Wilkes. This filly
has 4 wins in 6 begins, however final day trip was overwhelmed by 2 within the Eight Belles
at Churchill. She likes to run proper to the entrance, however she was challenged the
complete race final time, and gave in. The same set-up might occur right here as there
is numerous velocity on this race. She definitely shouldn’t be dismissed, however
I might reasonably search for a horse coming off the tempo on this race.
Market – Ridden by Tyler Gaffalione and educated by Chad Brown. That is an
intriguing horse at worth. In September of 2019 she seemed very
spectacular breaking her maiden, however then she had a 330 day lay-off. She gained in
her first begin again off of that lay-off, after which ran within the Grade 2 Prioress.
She completed 4th within the Prioress, however had a little bit of a tough journey. She
reveals potential to have the ability to sit off the tempo, and make one run which can be
harmful on this race. She is one to regulate.

#4 Finite –
Ridden by Ricardo Santana Jr and educated by Steve Asmussen. Finite is a really
spectacular filly. Over the winter she beat British Idiom and Preakness Stakes
winner Swiss Skydiver. If she runs again to that race in opposition to this discipline then
she is a winner. With that being stated, all of her finest races have been going a
mile or longer. Final day trip she completed 11th of 11, however that was
off a 6 month lay-off so there’s a in-built excuse there. The lay-off was
attributable to ankle surgical procedure, and the primary race after was actually unhealthy so I’m taking
a wait-and-see method.
Harbor – Ridden by Manuel Franco and educated by Richie Baltas. This can be
the favourite at publish time, and deservedly so. Venetian Harbor has misplaced to the
prime fillies on the earth equivalent to Gamine, Speech, and Swiss Skydiver. She has
just about overwhelmed each different filly aside from these 3. That is one other horse
can be prompted to go proper to the entrance, and will arrange a serious velocity duel
with the #2 4 Graces. She’s a really logical contender and needs to be
completely thought-about. In 6 profession begins she hasn’t completed worse than 2nd
Edge – Ridden by Florent Geroux and educated by Cherie Devaux. She has been
very spectacular up to now in her quick 5 race profession. Hasn’t completed worse than 3rd
but, and has again to again 2nd place finishes in graded stakes races.
She simply can’t appear to beat Franks Rockette, however the excellent news right here is Franks
Rockette shouldn’t be on this race. Florent Geroux ought to have this filly sitting
simply off the tempo which can be excellent, and may make issues attention-grabbing down
the stretch. She needs to be an element within the closing phases of this race.
Tonalist’s Form – Ridden by Rafael Bejarano and educated by Saffie Joseph.
Had a really promising begin in her profession when profitable 5 of the primary 6 races
which included a pair of graded stakes. Since coming off the lay-off although she
has been decidedly much less spectacular. She went off the favourite each occasions, and
ran very poorly each occasions. She appears to be heading within the unsuitable path, and
I’m going to go on this one, however ought to she get again to kind she can be
harmful at an enormous worth.
Maiden – Ridden by Corey Lanerie and educated by Eoin Harty. She is a really
attention-grabbing longshot on this race. They’d excessive hopes for her after they ran
her within the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf, and she or he was simply in over her head. They
gave her a 323 day lay-off, and she or he got here again and gained that race as a tune up
for this race. If she is ready to break effectively and never be outsprinted early on
then she goes to have a really huge likelihood at an enormous worth, however the worry is
that she is out-sprinted early on and might’t make up the wanted floor in time.
She could be one to take a longshot likelihood with.
#9 Grand Cru
Classe – Ridden by Martin Garcia and educated by William Mott. She definitely
hasn’t finished something unsuitable but. She has 3 begins, and three wins. All of these
races are in opposition to a lot weaker competitors, and that is clearly a big step
up in school. The in the reduction of in distance can be an enormous assist, as when she gained going
1 1/16 mile she acquired very drained within the stretch, however held on to win. She can be
proper close to the entrance together with fairly a couple of others, and she or he can be broad. It
can be attention-grabbing to see what sort of journey that Martin Garcia can work out.
Keeper – Ridden by Brian Hernandez and educated by Cliff Sise. Had a big
soar up in school final day trip and didn’t disappoint. She ran 2nd in
the Grade 3 Torrey Pines at Del Mar. She is a calmly raced filly , and has
ok zip to get good stalking place on these entrance runners. She is
intriguing. There are many horses on this race who’re all attempting to get
the identical sort of journey. It actually does really feel like a worth horse will make a soar
and get an enormous win. Could possibly be this one.
Evaluation: Regardless of Venetian Harbor being an enormous favourite this race is a
full toss-up. There are many velocity horses, and loads of horses who
can be stalking from simply off the tempo. The important thing can be which horses get the
journey from simply off the leaders. There are about 5 or 6 horses that might all be
vying for that very same journey. I’m going to take a shot and attempt to beat the massive
favourite right here.
1: #6 Regan’s Edge
2: #5 Venetian Harbor

4: #8 Truthful Maiden
