Seeking Value in Wide Open Diamondrella Turf Sprint
Very interesting Belmont feature, the Diamondrella for 3-year-old fillies sprinting 7 furlongs on turf. There are lots of ways to go here:
Magnificent Shirl (4-1), cutting back for a profitable turnback outfit with graded stakes experience; the well bred Bella Castani (5-2), returning to the scene of her most recent victory for Clement and the extremely sharp Fearless Jacq (3-1), also returning to her favorite course.
But we'll take any value offered on Effie Trinket (5-1), now back in top form and coming off a game score over elders on this course May 30. The spacing is ideal, the filly is working bullets and Rosie ships in for the mount. She should get a strong pace to help her late-run style.
Taking Effie Trinket to win at 4-1 or greater, an exacta box with Fearless Jacq and Bella Castani, adding Magnificent Shirl to the exotics mix.
