Daughter of 13% turf sire City Place was last seen when third after setting the early fractions in the Modesty Handicap here last month and has a record of 4-2-0-1 on this turf course. Trainer Armando De la cerda wins with 20% of his runners on grass and has won with 18% of his starters at this meet and filly is the likely pace setter here breaking from the rail under Kent Desormeaux but is unlikely to be a factor at the finish.
