Today’s opener is a maiden claiming extended sprint for 3-year-old fillies and #2 Akeela looks well placed for a diploma. First off the claim for Mike Mitchell (35%, strong flat bet profit), the daughter of Kela earned a solid figure when second in a similar spot last month and returns after sitting out her jail term. This seven furlong trip should be ideal for her closing style and she retains Talamo. We’ll be happy to take the 5/2 she’s listed on the morning line.
