Race Summary: Watch for support on the many first-timers before committing to bets. Of those that have raced FLAGSHIP FUND gets the nod. She found no support on a good debut and is drawn on the right side. MONTREAL MIST on the other hand was backed when 3rd on debut and should come on, however, ZODIAC PRINCESS was right on top of her on debut. COTOPAXI can improve more.
