No. 2 Tuba Man looks like a short price winner but long shot No. 1 Oak Kye Why has a shot and the No. 3 Alley Hondo looks live in his first start off the Ellis claim.
No. 3 Apt To Be Amazing drops in her second start off the layoff but gets stretched out and Bejarano sticks. No. 5 Attar Of Rose will offer some value.
No. 1 Fund Raiser and comebacker No. 3 Silver Swallow look to be the main two in this short five horse field, No. 3 Cherryblossommiss will be right there.
No. 3 Squallcreek is the one to beat, the other two are No. 1 Super Harmony off the claim and No. 7 Lucius Antonius off the layoff.
No. 5 Donner Wasser and No. 9 Laura Beasely both look tough.
No. 5 Major Smoke gets his first start off the Carava claim and looks spotted for action, No. 8 Areutrue gets his second off the layoff and his favorite jock get on board, No. 6 Highway Sixty Six will offer some value off the maiden score.
