The Grade 3 Bourbonette Oaks April 2 at Turfway Park features a field of 12 three year-old fillies set to contest the one mile event on the main track in stellar betting race immediately preceding the featured Grade 3 Spiral Stakes.

Marquee Miss is the lukewarm 3/1 favorite following her latest misadventure last out in the Grade 3 Honeybee Stakes where the Ingrid Mason trainee failed to handle the sloppy track and did not finish the race. With 3 wins in 7 starts, Marquee Miss has thrice showed her displeasure for the off-going, running off the board in all three starts. In her only other non-winning effort, the quirky filly ran last in a mile and a sixteenth allowance race over a track labeled fast at Keeneland. The all-or-nothing type, Marquee Miss has been impressive in her three wins, including a stakes win February 6 at Oaklawn in the Martha Washington. She's also recorded a win over the Polytrack, capturing the Arlingtin-Washington Lassie in her career debut in her only synthetic start. While consistency hasn't been her game, the favorite is difficult to play completely against. 

McPeek runner could be overbet

Dorodansa (5/1) represents the Kenny McPeek barn while making her synthetic debut. The daughter of Bellamy Road also exits the Honeybee, where she finished a distant fourth. Prior to that effort, Dorodansa had turned in three steady races including a third-place finish in the Martha Washington. Jockey Corey Nakatani will be aboard the filly for the first time, taking over from Julien Leparoux. With just a single win in six starts, handicappers may find reason to be cautious about accepting a short price.  

Pair of nice prices with logical look

American Doll (10/1) and Egyptian Honey (12/1) represent a pair of live longshots who's biggest asset might be their affinity for the local surface. The two runners have combined to go 4 for 5 over the Turfway Park Polytrack with three of those wins coming from the speedy American Doll. Egyptian Honey won an allowance race by four lengths December 15 in her only start at Turfway.
