#4 BE NIMBLE (9-2) chased from post 10 and ended up last at 32-1 odds in an allowance turf route at Keeneland July 9. She did enough in some of her other turf routes to be considered an early-pressing threat in this spot. She might offer a hint of value in her first attempt on all-weather ground. 

#3 Duchess of Sussex (8-5) exits a decent runner-up finish vs. sophomore fillies in the grassy Christiana Stakes at Delaware Park. I like her early-pressing versatility and she is a logical threat if she handles synthetic. 

#6 Peaceful Feeling (2-1) exits a claiming turf route win as the favorite at Monmouth. The sharp filly will probably stalk the pace. 

#5 Thisaintjumpstreet (8-1) is a 4-time local winner stretching back out in distance. Her numbers are a bit light but she is versatile and handles this trip.
