Verdict

Marketing Mix and Zagora head the home contingent with the former preferred having won a Grade 1 over C&D last time. However, both were beaten earlier in the year when coming up against a couple of today's European raiders. I'm A Dreamer beat Marketing Mix in the Beverley D at Arlington in August with Up well behind but couldn't follow-up in the Flower Bowl at Belmont when Nahrain bounced back to form. Roger Varian's filly beat Zagora on that occasion and Frankie was on board when she finished runner-up in this race last year at Churchill Downs. She'll be thereabouts again along with The Fugue whose latest victory in the Nassau Stakes suggests today's distance may well be her optimum trip but the French filly RIDASIYNA makes most appeal. The three-year-old has made rapid strides this year culminating in a three length defeat of good yardstick Izzi Top in the Prix De L'Opera last month and Mikel Delzangles charge may not have finished improving yet.
