#4 MISS J MCKAY (5-1) ran well in all five starts in 2019, and returned with an okay show finish in the Lady Shipman. Jose Ortiz knows her now and she should be running late for quality second after a layoff trainer Cathal Lynch.
#9 She’s My Type (3-1) ran on nicely for the place in the common Lady Shipman June 21. She should be heard from late if the pace heats up for the recently hot Rosario/Clement team.
#8 Artie’s Princess (7-2) easily won three of four all-weather sprints at Woodbine, and she missed by a neck in her lone loss. I like her early-pressing versatility and her numbers are on the rise. She is a solid threat if she handles turf. Her stablemate #2 Karak (6-1) returns to turf and should show speed. She won a pair of turf sprints last year.
#5 Shippy (12-1) moved to the George Weaver barn and ran well in both starts this year. I like her early-pressing versatility and she might surprise at a price.
#6 Bredenbury (9-2) sat a nice tracking trip and got first run in the Lady Shipman. There is a chance that she chases and gets the jump on the late runners again, but Motion has been struggling a bit at the current stand.
#7 Lexi On the Move (15-1) won her first two starts on a fast track, and got a break after running last in the slop in the Purple Martin April 4. She figures to stalk the pace if she handles turf.
#3 Fly So Pretty (8-1) is most effective as a late running turf sprinter. She broke her maiden at this course and distance last summer.
