Today’s seventh in Hallandale is a maiden allowances for the distaff set racing a flat mile, the field having varied amounts of experience into this.
Hollywoodland is the early line favorite at 7-2 for her second start, a favorable scenario for the McGaughey barn, as is the stretch-out and the second career run, a profitable 22% angle.
By Quality Road, the added distance can only help.
But experience counts at this level and trip. Imonra (4-1) makes her third lifetime start and the promise of a fast track should signal a return to her good debut, form especially since she returns fresh and gets first-Lasix for her first start going long.
Recent works are steady and purposeful for the Saffie Joseph barn, 24% profitable going first-Lasix. Reuniting with stable rider Edgard Zayas with a good mid-gate draw should enable the Violence filly to get loose here assuming a clean getaway.
We’re taking her to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding Cymbal Court (5-1) also getting first Lasix for Kevin Attard, who is profitable going first-time long, and price shot Be Here Now (12-1), second-time Lasix and hailing from a strong female family.
