Speed the rule Wednesday?

A week after one of the most distinct speed biases of the Woodbine meeting, a card of eight races is up this evening with some intriguing maiden events.
While the early focus of handicappers could be the success of front runners (San Diego Blowout in the first race), there are well-bred beginners to take a look at, especially for future events.
Canadian-bred PEEBLES, a regally-bred daughter of Gone West with a $400,000 price tag as a yearling, drew the rail post in the 4th race, a 'B' level maiden event that came up competitive. Peebles is the first foal of champion filly Poetically. Her main rivals figure to be MERRICKS (Grand Slam) and SPIRIT AWAY, who goes for the powerful duo of trainer Sid Attard and Emma-Jayne Wilson (6 for 15 at the meeting).
In the 5th race, THORPES COTTAGE, a full brother to multiple winner Archer Fleetm makes his debut in an 'A' level maiden race for Ontario-sired fellows. Queen's Plate eligible BOLD COMMENT figures to be the gelding to beat.
