Update 7:

I'll be using Point System to pick Best Answer here. For those who don't remember or don't know system- an this case, where choosing a Best Answer is tough, I'll be using a point system recommended by one of my contacts. Point system as follows:

Points will be added according to the order of finish. For Example only, using A 10 horse field-

The horse that wins gets 10 points

2nd plc will get 9 points.

3rd plc 8 points /and so on down. 7/6/5/4/3/2/1. Then I will add up each

Answerer`s 3 picks.

    Best Answer

    I don't like the two Pletcher horses. They'll be overbet and there are others in here that appear stronger.

    1. Platinum Exchange - She's been in the money all 5 starts, but tried graded stakes company for the first time. She'll have to go from the 1 pole and will have pressure on the front end. Not sure she's up to the task. Pass.

    2. Katy Now - She won her maiden at this track/distance and can sit off of the pace. The down side is that she's been beaten by over 15 lengths both times she's dipped her hoof into the graded stakes pool. Pass.

    3. Distorted Promise - Tries Poly fr the first time and cuts back in distance. Distorted Humor is a 20%+ sire of Polytrack runners. This filly hasn't shown much after beating up on allowance horses in Indiana. Pass.

    4. Negligee - Didn't make the progression from age 2 to 3. Cut back in distance and a race at Keeneland where she's 1 for 2 might help, but I doubt it. Pass.

    5. Tremendamente Loca - Been beating up on allowence company over the Tapita at Presque isle Downs. This filly likes to win. She's taking a jump in company and could be a live longshot. Possible longshot..

    6. Hilda's Passion -Hilda has the right front running style and speed figures for this race. On the down side, Hilda will have company on the front end, hasn't put two wins back to back, and was beaten by over 15 lengths over this track back in April. She also recorded a huge speed figure last time out and could regress. Pass.

    7. Chantilly Nayla - is 2-1-1 over this course and is G-2 stakes placed at Keeneland. I also have to respect her connections, who don't ship just for the fun of it. She was a head behind Kitty in a Tizzy last time out. Contender.

    8. Red Hot Buddha - Barn is 27% with first time blinkers, but she's been off of the board against similar in her last two tries. Pass.

    9 Beautician - She's 0-2 at Keeneland and has won twice in 14 starts. She's been the beaten favorite more times than I'd care to remember but prefers to finish second. She'll likely be overbet here too. Pass.

    10 Decelerator - Decelerator was unplaced in her only attempt over Poly. She was trounced by Hilda's Passion by over 10 lengths in her last. Send her back to Oaklawn. Pass.

    11 Kitty in a Tizzy - proved she belonged with Graded Stakes runners when she was second to the very good Biofuel last time out. She cuts back in distance and can sit pretty much anywhere during the race and can improve second off of a layoff. Contender.

    12 My Irish Girl - Has an impressive 7 for 8 record and won by closing over the speed favoring Monmouth main track. She's been beating up on lesser, but deserves a shot here. Contender.

    13 Much Rejoicing - Is 1-1 over this course and distance. She recorded her highest speed figure in that race too. She also fired a last work bullet. The down side is having to go from the far outside post. Possible longshot.

    14 - Speedy Spice - Like Tremendamente Loca she's been beating up on allowence company over the Tapita at Presque isle Downs and beat this rival by 1 1/2 lengths. She'll also have to go from the outside and her speed figures aren't that strong. Pass.
