#4 Clairiere (4/1) – This is probably the best race to watch on the card, not the best to bet unless you have a strong opinion. This is a salty field of talented fillies and mares without much separating them. The Ductor leans towards Clairiere because he’ll forgive her last race. She reportedly cut her mouth on the gate and the Ductor believes it because she ran too bad for something not to have occurred. She’s been better than Malathaat this year other than that race.
#1 Malathaat (3/1) – 3 for 3 at Keeneland, the Ductor can’t fault you if you put her on top, she’s very good. The Ductor thinks she’s going to be vying for favoritism at the windows.
#6 Nest (9/5) – She is obviously very logical and has been impressive this year. The Ductor is slightly against her at a short price because she’s yet to take on a field this strong. The Belmont was not a great field and the two fillies above will test her today.
