#3 QUEEN NEKIA (4-1) was overmatched in the Apple Blossom (G1) on April 18. She always runs her race at Gulfstream and is especially dangerous at one mile. A stalking trip is expected, and I think she can reel in #4 Letruska (3-1). The latter is the chalk. She loves to win races and is a strong pace player.

#1 Nonna Madeline (5-2) was clearly second best behind Letruska at 8.5 furlongs on April 16. She figures to save ground stalking the pace.

#2 Bella Ciao (9-2) is a sharp late runner exiting a runner-up finish vs. local stakes foes at this distance. She might be able to tag these if the pace gets hot.
