BC Juvenile Fillies Turf: Who are the fastest contenders?

While this year's crop of North American runners for the Juvenile Turf looks modest, the Juvenile Fillies Turf looks stacked with potential. It would not he surprising to see a European win the Juvenile Turf and an American capture the Juvenile Fillies Turf.

With that in mind, let us compare this year's top North American runners for the Juvenile Fillies Turf based on Beyer, Brisnet and Timeform figures.

Horse Best/Last Beyer Best/Last    Brisnet Figure Best/Last Timeform Figure 
Aunt Pearl83/8388/88101/101
Campanelle* 80/8090/9086/86
Plum Ali  82/82 88/88 108/108 
Emro 83/83 92/92 103/103 
 Madone80/80 87/87 95/95 
Fluffy Socks 69/69 86/8698/98 
Spanish Loveaffair 78/78 90/85 98/98 
Alda  79/74 92/90 96/91 
Editor at Large78/7885/85103/103
  Ivy League66/66  81/71  83/83 
Invincible Gal 71/65 83/83  96/95 

*Campanelle's figures represent her debut win at Gulfstream and not her wins in Ascot or France. 

Who is the fastest: Different figures favored different preps. The Brad Cox duo of Aunt Pearl and Emro both received 83 Beyer Speed Figures. Brisnet thought less of Aunt Pearl's win, but gave Emro a strong 92. This matched the number Graham Motion's Alda was given for her win in the Catch a Glimpse. Timeform loved Plum Ali's Miss Grillo victory, giving her a 108. 

One thing that stands out: While there are no Beyer or Brisnet figures for Campanelle's Group 1 win in France, her numbers in all three categories are still competitive when only taking into account her debut win at Gulfstream Park. She obviously continued to improve to win her next two races, thus it is fair to assume she would likely have the best overall figures in the field.
