The Halfmoon overnight Stakes is far from compelling and appears to have been written with Mr. Zito in mind. He has half the field, three of the six entered, and two are coupled. The three, combined are the first two choices on the early line.

The only conceivable value is a sharp four-year-old from lower profile connections who’s fast, gets along well with her rider, likes this surface and the distance. At 7-2, Are We Dreamin looks like a viable value play. A winner of her last, she’s goes again for trainer Randi Persaud, who sports a lofty 32 percent strike rate given that scenario.

A tactical speedster, she breaks in the middle of the pack and that can give Rajiv Maragh options. He’ll need that versatility as we’re sure Zito will devise a running style for his three fillies that would insure victory for one of them. With the exception of Are We Dreamin, the form in this group is a little spotty.

Taking Are We Dreamin to win at 3-1 or greater, no multiple-pool wagers.
