Wednesday's 4th race (1:47pm ET) from Aqueduct is the $80,000 Stardust Stakes for 3-year-old fillies traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the turf course.
#7 Channel Lady (4-1) appears to be sitting on a career best effort in her 3rd race off the shelf. She paired-up lifetime tops in a sharp entry level tally at the Spa and a Pebbles place finish over yielding ground at Belmont. Recently hot rider Domingez hops aboard and she should offer a hint of value for Pletcher.

#8 Absolute Crackers (5-1) showed a nice finishing kick from post 11 in her winning US bow at Keeneland. She must avoid a bounce in her second start in this country.
#3 Pianist (4-5) has been the favorite in all six outings (3 wins) and exits a disappointing 4th place effort in Keeneland's G3 Valley View. She is a prominent throughout threat on her best day but won't offer any value for the productive Castellano/Brown team.
