Analysis:
BARBADILLO didn't do much on turf, but has since worked nicely, and may strut her best stuff switching to the main track. She gets a tepid nod in a wide-open affair.
STATE TREASURE's workmate, Romp, ran a big race to finish second on Saturday, and the Mineshaft filly is bred to be a good one.
AMANWELLA adds Lasix for her second lifetime start, and that is a huge angle for trainer Graham Motion. She took a lot of money for her debut on grass, and didn't have an easy trip. She may be the one to beat.
FOXY BAILEY faced an impressive runaway winner in her Spa debut, and looms a strong pace factor. GRID shows some solid works, and the barn is an underrated source of debut winners. HECKUVA HUNTER was forced to rally over a speed-favoring track in her debut at Belmont, and can improve here. DANCEYOURSOCKSOFF raced evenly here three weeks ago, and needs to show more pop. PERSISTENTLY made a strong late rally in her debut, but must avoid getting stuck too far behind after breaking from the inside post.

Selections:
1. Barbadillo
2. State Treasure
3. Amanwella

The Play:
Barbadillo to Win and Place at 8-1 or more

Analysis:
STOMP tracked the pace while three wide, then made a smooth move to the leader's flank on the far turn. He raced a bit greenly in the stretch when unable to overcome the pacesetter, but was easily second-best, and can move forward off that effort.
TELEMACHUS is a half to some quality runners and his trainer, Seth Benzel, is a former assistant to all-world debut trainer Todd Pletcher. The sire does extremely well with firsters.
MATADOR RUN has excellent gate speed, and may prove tough to catch for Pletcher and Velazquez, but he lost late ground in both starts at Monmouth, and the final time of the most recent race was slower than a $50,000 maiden claimer for juvenile fillies on the same card.
LAND GRANT's trainer, Kiaran McLaughlin, has sent out a pair of good-looking debut winners over the past few weeks. SMAX cost $300,000 at auction, and comes from a quality female family. TROY G. raced greenly at Keeneland, and immediately went to the bench. He should show good speed from the outside post.

Analysis:
SYMBOL shows steady works for her debut, and trainer Mike Hushion has solid stats with his first-time starters.
SEAQUIN STAR should not be ignored. She is absolutely bred for speed as a daughter of Five Star Day out of a half-sister to Carson Hollow, and the most recent drill looks excellent.
ANJORIE's workmate finished third in her debut here the other day, and you have to respect anything Dutrow puts on the track.
CHEROKEE MOONLIGHT boasts a strong pedigree 'nick' and Mark Hennig has put over nice-priced babies at the Spa in the past. POOF POOF goes out for low-profile barn that won with a juvenile earlier in the meet. R BETTY GRAYBULL may need a start. FABULOUS FLORENCE's works fail to entice. GREEN HARBOR attracts John Velazquez off a strong of short workouts. JUST ANOTHER STORY must avoid a wide trip while DADDY'S LU LU BELL may be in a bit steep.
