Enstone 5-2 - has placed in five of seven career starts for trainer Mark Casse - two wins and three second place finishes. She arrives off a nice 2 3/4 length win in the minor Fury Stakes here April 30 which followed an OK second behind Ghostly Presence in the minor Princess Elizabeth Stakes November 12, a maiden score October 23 here and a fourteenth in her only graded stakes action to date - the G1 Natalma Stakes on this track in September. Enstone is the most experienced entry in the field and has been trending upward ahead of this weekend. She tries for a second straight stakes win (fist graded stakes) from post 7 with Patrick Husbands guiding the tepid morning line favorite.
Grizzel 3-1 - Irish bred Michael Doyle trained filly has 12 career starts with three wins and two third place finishes. She had two wins and two third place finishes in nine starts at home before posting consecutive OK fourth place finishes in her first two North American starts - the minor Melody of Colors Stakes February 25 and the minor Sanibel Island Stakes April 1 - both at Gulfstream. She broke through last time out with an Allowance score on this track April 28. Grizzel had failed to place in five starts prior to her win last time out and will try to build on that effort from gate 2. David Moran rides the intriguing second choice.
