Saturday’s eighth race from Aqueduct is the $100,000 Cidada Stakes for 3-year-old fillies dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time - 5:37 p.m. ET).

#8 MISS IMPERIAL (5-2) is the one to beat for Jason Servis. She drew outside the other speed and Manny Franco chose her over a couple of others including my second choice Guacamole. An outside stalking trip is expected and she is 2-for-2 at this distance. She was clearly second best as the chalk in the Ruthless at seven panels when last seen at Aqueduct Jan. 27.

#6 Guacamole (5-1) earned her best number yet in her winning return at this course/distance Feb. 22. She projects an outside stalking trip and might be able to repeat for Todd Pletcher with another forward move.

#2 Stonesintheroad (2-1) easily captured all three local outings including her last two at this distance. The New York-bred filly faces open company for the first time and is not the only speed horse in this lineup.
