Queen’s Plate 2012 Preview – Golden Ridge ready to rumble

Sunday’s 153rd edition of the $1 million Queen’s Plate features a 14-horse field and morning line favorite Strait of Dover shoots for a four-bagger.

#4 Strait of Dover (3-1) stretched out successfully in a facile Marine tally May 12 and should be on or near tepid splits from the outset. Justin Stein rides him well and he clearly enjoys the Woodbine surface. His sire English Channel was a long distance turf specialist so ten furlongs could be within his grasp.

#7 Golden Ridge (6-1) is my value top. The lightly raced, improving colt is bred all over to adore this longer journey and has enough positional speed to keep the leaders in his sights.

#8 Ultimate Destiny (20-1) has Pleasant Tap on the bottom of his pedigree and should continue to improve with added distance and experience. His last two numbers were his best yet and a tactical trip at square odds is anticipated.
