Lost in Labyrinth

(SAT) May 15th, 2021

8:50 p.m. Sorry it took so long,I've been lost in the labyrinth. Really had a hard time making up my mind and I'm still uncertain because I can't be positive about the pace of the race.

After much thought, I decided to key Gran Alegria. Sorry again for such a plain decision, but couldn't think of a reason she could lose below 4th place unless she has peaked out which is something you can't tell at this moment.

On the wheel would be Magic Castle, Maltese Diosa, Terzetto, Sound Chiara, and Resistencia. Though if Terzetto loses weight, I might replace her with Iberis. This is the best I could do for now.
