Despite the short field it’s a competitive group with any of three fillies; Liz Too (2-1), Dream Play (5-2) and Chattertown (7-2) more than capable of this.
Chattertown ships in super ship for Steve Klesaris following a dead heat win at Philly Park last out. Showing much improved speed to break her maiden in spot where the first and third finishers came back to win next out, the barn is showing a good deal of confidence spotting her here. She continues to train very well at her Fair Hill base and attracts talented speed rider David Cohen.
Dream Play might be 2-for-2 in her career if not for a very poor getaway in her return from a lengthy layup then continued to race in traffic much of the way. She impressed favorably in her maiden score at 2 and certainly could improve rapidly here. Eddie Castro picks up the mount from Kiaran McLaughlin, profitable with second-off-the-layup returnees.
But leave it to Rick Dutrow to find a spot and position that suits his filly nicely. Blessed with high cruising speed, she sports a bounce rebound pattern into this, her two-back being significantly faster than her first. But she might have had an additional excuse as well, adding Lasix for the first time this afternoon. Richard Migliore rides her back for an outfit that’s a sensational 39 percent efficient with first-Lasix runners. Migliore should sit the pocket until ready.
Taking Liz Too to win at 2-1 or greater, no multiple pool wagers.
