The interesting fillies in here are Rasta Farian (7-2), Trouble Maker (9-2) and Them There Eyes (10-1).
Wish I could give Longshot Them There Eyes a better chance to win at the price. She’s never raced in better form, has tactical speed and an inside slip but returns on short rest. It’s hard to envision a repeat of her recent top efforts given that scenario.
Rasta Farian, meanwhile, has really come to hand for Michael Matz. Her figures have improved with her development as a four-year-old, a mile is her best game, and she has the kind of early speed that should insure a comfortable stalking trip off moderate fractions. Her recent dirt race indicated that the filly is distributing her energy now like a true turf filly. Her lower profile in this group assures bettable odds.
Trouble Maker has improved dramatically over the summer and fall sprinting, and she should handle added ground. However, a class hike accompanies the longer distance. Still it wouldn’t be hard to envision a winning performance with an effort similar to her recent races. Like we said, an interesting heat.
Taking Rasta Farian to win at early line odds of 7-2 or greater, an exacta box with Rewrite, and trifecta keys of Rasta Farian with the other aforementioned fillies.
