Carl Nicholson takes us through his selections for Wednesday's meet at Keeneland.
RACE OF THE DAY - RACE 7
LEXI ON THE MOVE has some fair form at this type of level and ran as well as could have been expected last time out at Churchill. CHARMING LADY comes into this off the back of a win at Ellis Park, this looks slightly deeper than that contest and personal best is probably called for. PURRFECTLY CLAIRE was out of her depth in a Grade 2 contest at Saratoga, she was two from 2 for the season before that and has been off interest now back in the right grade. CECI VALENTINA has been off the track since January when not beaten far at all in a very hot contest at Tampa. She has plenty of form in the book that would see her go very close if ready to perform to her best on the first start for the new barn.
CECI VALENTINA stands out on form from last season and looks worth chancing on the return to action for new connections.

ICATIRO has been in great form recently and went very close last time out, but ZAEVION looks an interesting opponent on the first start for the Casse barn. He could have a class edge over ICATIRO going on previous form lines and gets my vote to turn over the likely favorite.
This looks a tricky puzzle with all of the small field runners looking to have some sort of chance, but PANTERITA could find this a whole lot easier than recent engagements and that could be the angle in.
NO NAY NOW is nothing special, but this is the lowest grade he has tackled and if a win is going to happen it should be in this grade of race.
