13: Came Home Late (Martin, House)119/15-1

GRACE OF GREATNESS has superior class edge on the field with good early speed, expect to sit off the hot pace for first attack. SISTA BABY GIRL is destined to duel after coming off a place effort trying to lead the field to the wire before getting caught. STARRY should improve second off the layoff with late closing kick. BERT’SLITTLESISTER and I’VE HEARD RUMORS will be major players.

13: Rodger Wilko (Carreno, Pearson)119/15-1

YOU BE GATOR BAIT plunges from three sub-par runnings in stake races on the main track, should be picking them off late if ready to roll on the lawn.

10: Huma (Dieguez, Hanson)118/20-1

11: Tale of Clairlyn (Escobar, Rengstorf)118/10-1

Head scratcher of a race to start the Late Pick 4. CASTLE QUEEN ran three wide in debut while in holding pattern for the third spot, candidate to move forward off that effort. CAPTAINS GLORY missed the break in second career start taking her out of contention, better break and positive jockey switch makes her contender for win honors. RACING RAE and GOLD CUP SKIER are new shooters with solid work tabs.

9: Code of Kings (Hernandez, Donlin)123/8-1

SO SHINY is likely the one to catch in this evenly matched field and will take them as far as he can go. AUGUST DAY chased wide last out but fought way to the winner’s circle improving last out. GALLENT GENT has realistic assignment closing late if pace scenario gets heated.

8: Quiet Command (Martin, Lund)123/20-1

9: Appeals the Deal (Velazquez, Biehler)123/15-1

MASTER CHEF takes another drop for the Diodoro barn shipping in from the west coast, has strong shot of being lone speed. Stablemate SMOKIN CAT, might get perfect setup if roommate gets sent too quickly charging late from the outside. MR. SATURDAYNIGHT showed good stalking speed out of state and should be part of the mix early.

7: Nesterenko Ridge (Butler, Rhone)119/4-1

8: Chrome Cat (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/5-1

NESTERENKO RIDGE gets new trainer with Bernell Rhone coming off the turf with good early speed, Butler aboard makes this shipper dangerous. FINANCIAL FREEDOM has ran second in all three starts closing from far back, deserving favorite but trust factor is a problem. CHROME CAT invades from Louisiana Down with some decent efforts down there.
