Verve looks like the one to beat in the Wilton. She has won 2 of her 5 starts this year, including back-to-back wins leading up to this one. Her main competition may come from Tell Milady, second in the Monomoy Girl last out. Bay Cat takes a class drop and could be in the mix.

Here’s the field:

#1 Verve
Owner/Breeder: Mb Stables

Turned in a blistering 5 furlong work on July 10, 2nd fastest by any 3 year old filly this year. Coming in off a two-race winning streak, this daughter of Commanding is looking for her first stakes win. 

#2 Tell Milady
Owner/Breeder: Nakamura Stables

Hasn’t had a win yet this year but managed to earn $97.800. Turned in a big effort last out in the Monomoy Girl to come up a length short.

#3 Kiss Me Back Foot
Owner/Breeder: Night Rider Stables

Has one maiden win in 6 starts but it was a big one at CD two starts back. Stakes potential but may be outmatched here.

#4 Madam Koi Koi
Owner/Breeder: Jokerjoes

Come from behind victory in stakes company last out.  Stakes placed earlier this year but will have to bring her A game to win here.

#5 Legs For Days
Owner: Bigchief Stables

On the board in all four starts this year, including the Melair in state-bred company. Another one that needs a little luck and a big effort.

#6 Bay Cat
Owner: Rock Creek

Stakes winner at two, tried graded level without success. Better spot for her here. Should be in the mix.

#7 Olga
Owner/Breeder: Arindel

Third in the MonGrl last out behind Tell Milady. Gets a rematch here but might come up short again.

#8 Chub Wagon
Owner: Spankys Barn

Back on dirt after a try on turf in graded company. Before that she had back-to-back wins in MSW and Allowance company. Another one that will need a big effort.

#9 Christine Daae
Owner: Big Jd Racing

Broke her maiden last start. Trying to make a big step up here. Looks like a strong contender, but lack of experience may hurt her chances.

Picks: 1-2-6
