Royal Delta, It's Tricky Ready for Beldame

Eclipse champion Royal Delta and three-time Grade 1 winner It’s Tricky are both listed as probable for the Grade 1, $400,000 Beldame Invitational, run at 1 1/8 miles.

 

It would be the fifth meeting – all in Grade 1 events – between Royal Delta and It’s Tricky. Royal Delta maintains a 2-to-1 edge in victories, winning last year’s Alabama and Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic, while It’s Tricky captured the 2011 Coaching Club American Oaks. In their previous meeting, It’s Tricky stumbled badly at the start, running well to finish third, while the odds-on Royal Delta finished second in the Personal Ensign at the Spa.

 

Also listed as probable for the Beldame is Go Unbridled, coming off a 6 ½-length romp at odds of 8-1 in the Saratoga Dew overnight stakes for New York breds on August 27 at Saratoga.

 

Listed as questionable are All Due Respect, Cash for Clunkers, and Maristar.

I kinda like the filly that placed in the Personal Ensign. She ran wide and gave 10 lbs to the winner, although the weight difference was certainly fair. Who's her new jockey for the Beldame?
It's Tricky might have a large tactical advantage over Royal Delta here. And in all honesty, It's Tricky ran a better race than Royal Delta in the Personal Ensign.
