# 9 IMPECCABLY 9/2

# 6 STRICTLY CLASSY 6/1

# 1 LAST GREETINGS 20/1

IMPECCABLY is my choice. Shows evidence of the look of a money-making play, averaging a solid 72 speed figure which is one of the most respectable in this field.

# 2 INSCRIPTION 5/1

# 8 MISS MURDER 2/1

# 3 COPPER ORE 6/1

INSCRIPTION looks competitive to best this field. Is hard not to examine given the company run in as of late. Is a strong contender based on figures earned lately under today's conditions. This mare obviously likes the distance, going 1 - 4 in her races recently. MISS MURDER - Is difficult not to consider based on speed figures which have been decent - 58 avg - of late. With Hernandez getting the mount, watch out for this animal. COPPER ORE - Ought to be given consideration in this competition if only for the competitive speed rating posted in the last affair.
