The Pebbles – 10/13
BEL Race #7 1m Turf Stake
Purse $200.000 (plus up to $30.000 for NY-breds) For Fillies Three Years Old.
1 Edna Everage John Henry Castellano J J
Raced in good company in the early season running well in the Providencia Stakes when second after leading at this trip her form then stopped progressing and her trainer took her to overnights to get some confidence back.That has proved to be a great idea as the filly has won her last two races in lesser company and going by her works she has appreciated the detour. Back in stakes company she gets a good draw and a small field to get back into winning ways.
2 Adjourned Team 7 Illusions Franco M
Another that has come back to overnights for her last two starts after she ran third in the Ivanavinlot and fifth in the Trillium Stakes. She won her last start at GP over 5 furlongs so has plenty of speed but i am not sure she is quite up to the best of these despite a very handy draw.
3 Free Kingdom Hambletonian Stable Carmouche K
A highly consistent sort but she gets a 2Lb penalty for winning the Unzip Me Stakes last time so will be up against it to beat these. She won a DMR optional claimer before that over a mile and an eighth so the trip shouldnt be a problem and it is clear she is an improving sort that may just be up to giving weight away.
4 The Stars And Beyond Team 7 Illusions Saez L
Just the one maiden win for her but she has been pretty consistent through her career despite that poor win record. She finished off her last two races over seven furlongs pretty well so this mile should suit and her works are suggesting she may run well here. Probably the stronger of the two stable entries.
5 Sexy Siberian TwinTowersRacing Lezcano J
Thrown into the deep end in the DMR Oaks last time she made no real show and ended up last. Ignoring that start she has done well enough in overnights to be competitive but i can’t see her winning.
6 Summit D J C Racing Stables Cancel E
Ran a solid race in the Sands Point last time finishing fifth just two lengths behind the winner and in this pretty poor field that represents close to the best form. The stable is in top form and if the wide draw isnt too bad for her she may be the pick.
Barley more than an allowance field i think Edna Everage may have enough to win from Summit and Free Kingdom.
