This year's edition has drawn a typically competitive field of 14, just the kind of race that makes the Betmix Angler online handicapping software so valuable.

We scanned the Angler database for 10-furlong main course stakes at Woodbines since 2012 and found that Average of Last 3 E1 Pace has been a lucrative handicapping factor.

Over one third of the contenders ranking first in this factor have found the winner's circle while producing a spectacular $71.70 Win Return for bettors. The sample includes two of the past 7 Queen's Plate winners, Midnight Aria ($35.20) and Holy Helena ($6.30) plus two other Plate placers - Amis Gizmo (2nd at $2.55-1) and Asserting Bear (3rd at $8.40-1).
