What type of strategy should be used with St.Trinians in order to defeat Zenyatta?

Should St. Trinians move early in an attempt to separate herself?

Or should she wait for Zenyatta to start coming and float Zenyatta wide on the turn?

She should run against RA instead. Sorry I just couldn't resist.

No. Take a short cut across the infield and wait. Sorry, I just couldn't resist either.

Slow down the front end so all in the field will have better late moves and then traffic would be a real problem through which she would have to negotiate.

Easier said than done since she's still possible for 4 different races

Rachenvy is such an ugly disease. Posters can't let a Zenyatta thread go more than a post or two without mentioning the reigning Horse of the Year.

Really, it is an easy diagnosis. Ghostflapper is riddled with it.

Back to the original post:

Won't St. Trinians' running style already guarantee that she will "get the jump" on Zenyatta?

Moving too early will only leave her more a sitting duck down the lane then she already will be.

Imo its gonna take a large field, that can run ala QR for the mile (1:33) and have gas left for the finish. She breaks late in that bunch, she will be pressed to either wait on them to come back to here, or move early to settle closer. However, at those distances, you seldom see the mile at those fractions.
Strategy #2: Bring your A game or scratch.......
Only way to beat a deep closer is to flat outrun them on the front and hope the wire gets there sooner than later. Doubt anyone is going to use up their entrant for the graces of the rest of the field, excepting natural frontrunners who always try desperatly to back it down.....
