Eye Liner Stakes Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field. Far Too Easy heads the market and is the class of the race but is now an early scratching. Blaze A Trail should be around the mark and is suited to dry ground. Cepheus should prove hard to hold out and has been a model of consistency this prep while Gravina will be hitting the line hard and is suited to this field.
