1   Never Delay            Owner: Barcelona Farms                         Garcia Alan                 

Never Delay broke her Maiden at second asking in May right here at WO going 5 furlongs by a neck.  With about 6 weeks rest her next start would be on the sod going 6 ½ furlongs where she finished fourth.  Trying to get her back to winning fashion, owner Barcelona Farms decides to drop her back on to the dirt course where she broke her Maiden.  She could be a good value bet.

2   Astral Projection     Owner: Oliver Klozov                          Olguin G L                            

Broke her Maiden at first asking at PEN against Maiden Claimers $12.50 to win by three.  Next month she ships west to CD where she takes on Allowance company non winners of 1 race where she catches a good main track and ends up winning by a ½ length.  Her last race was in the Clarendon Stakes for ON Breds where she finished second just missing by ¼ of a length.  Looks like the sharpest one in this bunch.

3   Atlas Seven              Owner: Team 7 Illusions                        Moran D           

After three starts she is still a Maiden.  She tried her first attempt at breaking her Maiden in May against ON Breds where she finished second by neck.  Her next outing was against Maiden ON Breds where she finished third.  In her third attempt she ran in the Clarendon Stakes which was for ON Breds where there was five entries and she finished third once again.  If she can score a win here then she will finally break her Maiden.

4   Capo Di Tutti Capi       Owner: Jerry Garcia Racing                  Husbands P            

Tried to break her Maiden at WO against Maiden ON Breds but finished off the board to be 8th.  Her next outing would be the next month in June at CD where she faced open company Maidens and stalked the pace to rally in the final half furlong for the win.  Looking to step up here today, and draws a small field to face.  Her biggest competitor is probably the 2.
