Analysis:
PROUD ZOE has been keeping step in the mornings with Mission Impazible, an impressive debut winner for Todd Pletcher on yesterday's card. Proud Zoe worked a furlong in 10 seconds flat prior to the February sale, and looks like a quick one.
KINSOLVING and WILD FOREST CAT both start for Steve Asmussen, one of the top debut trainers in the world. Kinsolving is especially bred for speed, and he will receive the services of Asmussen's go-to rider, Shaun Bridgmohan.
ORCHESTRATOR reportedly worked in company with unraced Afleet Maggi on April 10. The Keeneland Clockers mentioned that they "went well" with their "first three furlongs in 34 3/5." ROLLIN WITH ANGELS worked with a runner that was handled by Mission Impazible on Thursday's card. UP IN LIGHTS reportedly smoked uncoupled entrymate MOURETTE during an April 8 drill that the Keeneland Clockers noted as a "strong gate effort." RHYTHM OF THE SEA and ZIPPY LARRY both show bullet workouts, and both have some speed in their pedigrees. DREAMINOFJOSEPHINE reportedly couldn't keep touch with Track Ride, a winning three-year-old filly for these connections during the April 5 workout, but the Keeneland Clockers noted that she "was not asked for effort" during the subsequent breeze, and went "a little better than Liquid Fire." HAVEANICEFADAAY may need a bit weaker.

Selections:
1. Proud Zoe
2. Kinsolving
3. Wild Forest Cat
