1) Lovely Lodge, J. Arce – This now five year old mare tries to return to the winners circle for the first time since October of lat year. I think she is a little outclassed here but with a field this small, anything can happen.
2) Danzig Ghost, J. Ortiz – Should be he clear favorite come Saturday in my opinion this filly goes out for the HOTY connections of DJC Racing Stables. Her speed figure clearly dominated over this field and I think she will have an easy winner’s share of the $250.000 purse.
3) Cannoli, L.Contreras – This filly comes into this GII after having bounced in her prior start. She has solid back class which makes her a contender here. After all, who doesn’t love a cannoli!
4) Helping Hand, R. Bejarano – MB homebred has consistent workouts and solid beyers. Look for her to step up big for the best in the game.
