6-Filo Di Arianna (2/1) ~ hasn’t had a bad spring off the extended layoff but should be happier being home

5-Old Chestnut (10/1) ~ just. so. dang. consistent. + I’m a sucker for that pedigree

R8 | G3 Dominion Day Stakes for 4&up going 1-1/8 mi. (A)

6-Paramount Prince (4/1) ~ King’s Plate winner (main photo, Michael Burns) might be happier with ON-breds but that last effort was strong

5-Skyro (6/1) ~ intriguing jock switch for a hot barn

8-Tyson (2/1) ~ has to weave thru traffic without getting knocked off stride

1-Palazzi (5/2) ~ does his best running here so tough to ignore

R9 | G3 Marine Stakes for 3yo going 1-1/16 mi. (A)

5-Essex Serpent (6/1) ~ stretches out off the steady improve & bred to run for days for great connex

1-Cameo Performance (2/1) ~ gotta decide if the KEE maiden win was a fluke or the CD stake try was a bounce & that’s unfun at a short price

7-Native Land (4/1) ~ toss the Peter Pan try (no knock cuz take the shot if ya can) & dude ain’t done nuthin wrong

2-Piper’s Factor (5/2) ~ jumps up in class off the freshening & confidence win

R10 | G2 Nassau Stakes for 4&up F&M going 1 mi. (T)

2-Implicated (8/1) ~ loves herself a flat mile + she’s coming in off a win & is known to get streaky

4-Devil’s Bit (20/1) ~ not the softest spot to step up into coming back off the extended vacay but she likes hitting the board & it’s Attfield & Emma-Jayne

6-Full Count Felicia (3/1) ~ hot barn sends fresh fast filly

5-Millie Girl (10/1) ~ (pictured, below. Michael Burns photo) jock switch for 2nd back off the winter break for closer who needs a clean trip

7-Fev Rover (5/2) ~ needs the lead or spits the bit but always give the Farmer horses an extra look
