Saturday’s GIII Selene S. at Woodbine has attracted just five runners, but they are a strong quintet highlighted by recent Sovereign Award winner Bold Script (Speightstown). Third in the grassy GI Natalma S. here last September, the gray was second over the local lawn in the Cup and Saucer S. a month later. Romping by 7 1/2 lengths when getting back on the synthetic for the Princess Elizabeth S. Nov. 4, she checked in fifth last time when venturing south for Gulfstream’s GII Davona Dale S. Mar. 2.
Souper Charlotte (Warrior’s Reward) looks to remain unbeaten as she attempts to navigate two turns for the first time here. A debut winner sprinting over this strip Oct. 7, the Live Oak runner captured the seven-panel Glorious Song S. last time Nov. 11.
Her trainer Mark Casse also sends out Power Gal (Jpn) (Empire Maker). Heroine of Oaklawn’s Marsha Washington S. Feb. 2, the dark bay could only manage seventh in that venue’s GIII Honeybee S. Mar. 9 and was third last time in the Star Shoot S. going six furlongs over the Woodbine synthetic Apr. 21.
