Steppe Daughter appears to be heading in the right direction but how she'll handle underfoot conditions here is anybody's guess. Llyrical is thoroughly exposed but was second on heavy going over 6f here last year and would have a chance on that run. Rae Guest is adept at placing the fillies in his yard so it would be no surprise to see a big run from STRAWBERRIESNCREAM, a daughter of Teofilo, and she's preferred to fellow newcomer Dunn's River and the modest Danz Star.
