MOM NANA PETRIE makes her second start off a layoff and returns to a distance where she had finished first across the wire twice in two starts. Trainer Jeff Mullins is due for a win as is jockey Tyler Baze. MOM NANA PETRIE can sit just off the pace of BIG BREAK, LILBOURNE ELIZA and PUTAHEXONHER. If ready to roll off the layoff, MARCYJANE could be worth a bet. The Unusual Heat mare has won off a layoff before and should get a decent enough pace to run into. DIAMINDA is one to use in a pick-4 wager, making her first start since late February. Her even running style down the hill should translate well to this mile distance. She did run at a mile in England last year and while she finished last, beat over 58 lengths, it was in the Group 1 One Thousand Guineas. In this wide open race, anything can happen.
