Today's Spa feature is an interesting one; the 5-1/2 furlong Coronation Cup for 3YO fillies on the turf.

As you might expect, there is no shortage of speed, given the conditions, but there are some fast fillies making their turf debuts vs. salty rivals, never an enviable chore. So we'll take one with turf experience, even if it never has run here.

Stars Above Me (5-1) is making her U.S. debut for Graham Motion. Her five lifetime starts have come on grass but her early speed works against her there but is a plus here. Adding first Lasix and the trainer change, both profitable scenarios, also augurs well.

Taking Stars Above Me at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with Ruslana (12-1), Paco Lopez in for the mount from Wesley Ward, and distance specialist Recoupe (7-2).
