Melbisha Narrowly In Wide Open Affair

#4 Melbisha (8-1) offers value to the horse player willing to take a shot in a wide open race.  Nakatani returns for this Neil French charge and she did her best running for the jock two races back.  I think he'll have her reserved early and try to win this with one sustained run.  Liked her work on 10/4.  Was always close in her only turf tries.  Matt Chew has a good one here in #7 Laura Beasley (7-2).  Drops back in distance and class.  Another with a strong late turn of foot.  Will be game down the lane.  Baffert's #8 Serene Sophia (2-1) is sure to draw the dough.  Nice, lightly-raced syn. sprinter that looks like she is capable of making the move to a two-turn route on the turf.  I'm thinking better underneath than on top given the number of "first time moves".  #3 Party with Brando (5-1) and #10 Taxi Ride (6-1) both deserve consideration for lesser prizes.

Here's how we'll bet it:

$.50 Superfecta 4,7 with 3,8,10 with 3,4,5,7,8,10 with 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 ($72)
