Emirates Airline Filly and Mare Turf
AngaraForm is going backwards; 0-for-4 at Belmont
Favourable TermsEnglish filly would need huge leap forward
Film Maker2nd in this race last year but 0-for-3 at Belmont

Flip Flop

Outclassed; should stay in California
IntercontinentalSpeedy but often rank; won't stay 1 1/4 miles
Karen's CaperBig U.S. debut Oct. 15, but Euro-bounce looms
Luas LineDon't think 3rd straight start in U.S. will be her best
MegahertzGifted deep closer needs pace, firm; likely underlay
Mona LisaIreland-based filly is 1-for-14 but just ran race of her life
Ouija BoardDefending champ may not be what she was in 2004
RiskaverseLoves Belmont (5-for-13), but was 35-1 wakeup a fluke?
SundropLost 4 in a row; doesn't fit with these
WendWon over course, distance; must improve, but not impossible
Wonder AgainIf she gets pace, soft ground, could be right there
