BULLDAT has been knocking on the door and seemed happy on the turf when switched for the first time latest.
She went well for a long way before fading late on and this looks a slightly softer contest.
Princesa Crystal has had 11 chances to get off the mark now but was beaten a neck over this trip earlier in the campaign and didn’t get much luck in running last time.
Missandei is interesting making her debut as a four-year-old and a market move would be interesting.
FRONTIER MESA got the job done very nicely when going from the front over course and distance last time. This opposition is a little stronger but there should be a lot more to come.
Beyond Gone came with a late run to grab fourth last time and is having his sights lowered today. He has a decent rider in the saddle.
Flaming Hot is another to consider as he continues in such excellent form. He went down in a head-bobber last time and won’t be far away.
NOT NOW RAND has been showing some promise in higher grades than this including when fourth over a furlong further last time. This trip suits better and he’ll be fitter for that experience.
Nextstop Pokpic looks a threat coming from a better contest where he was just out of the money. He missed the kick there, which didn’t help, and is capable of a much better showing.
Newyork Giant comes from a yard that does well with horses coming back from a break and he has shown enough to figure.
STARSHIP BUBBA has shown promise on the dirt and has moved to a yard that shows good profits when their runners switch surfaces. This trip seemed to suit last time and this is a very winnable race.
Plan Of Attack is another horse on the move with some fair form in the book. He was well backed when fourth latest after meeting plenty of trouble in running.
Strong Ending comes down in class and that could make all the difference on his fifth outing.
DALARNA can keep his winning streak going after winning three on the bounce and four of his past five. This drop back to a mile looks a wise move as his record is so strong over it and he looks a cut above these rivals.
Power Walker looks the biggest threat thanks to his good current form. He has two wins and a place from his three spins around this track which speaks for itself.
My Point Exactly was second to Dalarna when they last met and can chase him home again.
CANDY MACHINE showed plenty of promise when second over 6f here last time and shapes as though this longer trip will suit. He finished off strongly and clearly has a lot more to offer.
Ellis Island ran on well to finish third on debut over a furlong shorter so this extended mile should be right up his street. He was a relatively expensive buy for horses of this level.
Or’Errifice was a decent second in sloppy ground last time and has plenty of staying power.
SILLY NOTION created a good impression when winning as she liked on debut last time at Tampa. That was over this trip and she has moved to a yard that does really well with its new arrivals.
Interest almost fell over coming out of the stalls last time and is taking a major drop in class today. The booking of top rider Luis Saez catches the eye.
La Tres Jolie is another coming down the grades after not getting the clearest of runs last time. She should be in the mix.
OFF TOPIC was last seen winning a stronger race than this at Belmont Park and has placed form in Grade 1 company. Trainer Todd Pletcher is top dog at this track and has found a good race to strike again.
Final Cut is another coming back from a layoff and she ended last season with three wins on the bounce. It would be no shock to see her pick up again.
WW Fitzy was sixth in a Grade 3 last time on the back of a good win in a similar race to this so warrants respect.
TAPIT TO RIDE has been running against better horses than this and wasn’t disgraced when fifth last time. She saves her best for this turf track and has a handy draw to make a bold bid.
Cherokee Sound had to come from a long way back to finish third over this trip last time out in January. Royal Ascot regular Wesley Ward should have her fit for this comeback.
Laska should be fitter for the run after a good fourth returning from a break latest. She is at home over this trip.
