2016 Distaff Handicap Race Preview at Aqueduct

Cavorting 9-5 - has nine career starts with five wins and a third place finish. She enters off an OK third in the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita back on December 26 which followed a somewhat disappointing fourth as favorite in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (from an undesirable post 14) and a nice three race win streak - the Grade 2 Prioress Stakes at Saratoga September 16, the Grade 1 Test Stakes August 8 and the minor Jersey Girl Stakes June 5 at Belmont Park. She also recorded a terrific win in the Grade 2 Adirondack Stakes at Saratoga August 10 , 2014 and had an 11 length a maiden score in wire-to-wire fashion at Belmont Park July 3, 2014. Cavorting had been a tad up and down but has placed in four of her last five starts overall ahead of this weekend. She looks for her first win since September however when she departs from gate 4 with Irad Ortiz guiding the morning line favorite.

Paulassilverlining 2-1 - Michelle Nevin trained filly has placed in nine of 11 career starts - four wins, three seconds and two third place finishes. She won the Grade 2 Matron Stakes at Belmont Park in October, 2014 and went on to a runner-up finish in the Grade 3 Tempted Stakes on this track to end her 2014 campaign - she also won the minor Ruthless Stakes here in January, 2015. She hasn't raced in graded stakes company since but has looked good against lesser competition. Last time out was a second in the minor Correction Stakes here March 19 after an Allowance Optional Claiming on this track February 11 and consecutive thirds in minor stakes action at Laurel Park to end 2015. Paulassilverlining has been a factor in every race so far in her career and hopes to be again Sunday. She tries for her first graded stakes score in 18 months from the rail as the morning line second choice with Jose Ortiz aboard.

She also had a fourth in the Grade 3 Delaware Oaks July 11 and a sixth in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes in June.
