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.
