Stay by me, Stephanie

Today's featured 10th race is G1 Diana Stakes for older fillies and mares going nine furlongs on the turf, and it's a tough, wide open scramble.

We're going to opt for value and take one half of the uncoupled Chad Brown entry, Stephanie’s Kitten (6-1).

She figures to benefit greatly from the one mile Just A Game in which she lost contact with the field in the early going then came rolling but much too late.

'Stephanie' has run her lifetime best on Spa turf at today's trip and with a return to the distance, a somewhat contested pace in front and a switch to Frankie Dettori all augur well.

Taking Stephanie's Kitten to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing her first and second with Discreet Marq (5-1) and Somali Lemonade (12-1).
