** Best Bet Epona’s Dream, after a good turf try, stumbled in her dirt debut and recovered nicely to finish third while going 5 wide during the stretch-run. With a positive rider change to Lezcano, the daughter of Orb is poised for her maiden victory.

 * Best Value  Let’s cross out Nebo’s two starts against better and focus on her other races at this level. In those starts she improved her Beyer number by 17, good enough to beat most of those that have started. There are a number of the first time starters; check the tote for clues.
