Sister Blues tried turf for the first time in her most recent race, on 3/2, and it was a resounding success as she won by 5 lengths in a field of 8. That race was run at the same distance as this one, a mile and one-eighth, making her one of only 3 horses in this race to have won at the distance. She's come back to work out very well in the morning so continues to retain fitness and has every right to win her 2nd race in a row.
Salty Breeze is the other main win contender, and as with Sister Blues has a high probability to finish 2nd if not first. She has improved in every starts since her debut last summer, most recently earning her first win, in a two-turn turf race just like this one. Getting the services of North American leading jockey Castellano, she has every right to move right through this first allowance level with an effort similar to her most recent.
