Starter Analysis

Canadian invader comes here in good form having won all three of her starts this year, most recently when running from just off the pace to win the Grade Two Dance Smartly Stakes at Woodbine in early July. Daughter of Successful Appeal is from the barn of Reade Baker who wins with 21% of his runners that won their last start and who has won with 20% of his starters this year. Filly faces a fair class hike here but has won four of her seven starts on grass and may be a factor late with Joel Rosario taking the mount.
