8: Klassy Klepper (Mojica, Berndt)123/10-1

9: Racinrosemary (Delorme, Padilla)118/5-1

NAOMI RIDGE ESQ. is dependable enough to be in the hunt when things get interesting down the the stretch. Class drop should help for the cagey veteran. DORN switches surfaces while dropping in from allowance races for the Canchari/Robertson team. Has burned a ton of money but just can’t put this girl on top. RACINROSEMARY is a winner at this level and distance last out after a collision course tour.

11: Stormy Holiday (A.Canchari, Broberg)119/3-1

12: Behr Strike (Hernandez, Westermann)119/10-1

Good betting race in this big field. KEEP ME POSTED was sent clear before tiring late running longer last out. Should appreciate the cutback in distance in a field full of chasers. STORMY HOLIDAY finished second last out as the favorite despite getting in tight quarters when things were getting intriguing. Winner two back with Canchari at the helm. VIBRATO JAZZ beat Stormy Holiday to the finish line but also had troubled trip. A lot of upside coming in off that victory.

7: Stormy Rhonda (Butler, Robertson)123/3-1

8: Makinmymark (Rosier, Lund)123/3-1

9: Perfect Paradise (Goodwin, Fields)123/15-1

STORMY RHONDA has slight edge over her counterparts in the turf sprint department. Winner three back from off the pace and should let others sacrifice themselves up front getting the perfect set-up. MAKINMYMARK will be vying for command on the lead and could prove tough if can transfer her speed from the dirt to the turf. COTTON CLUB CUTIE is another runner jumping off the main track and most likely will be flying from the rear late to the scene.

6: Sabotage (Vergara, Rhone)118/15-1

7: Five Star Creek (Goodwin, L.Rarick)118/4-1

BACK ALLEY WARRIOR ran decent enough in debut while keeping to task as a scrapper and getting a skinny share. Not facing a field of beasts, so has a shot to pull off the mild upset. ALITTLEBITTWISTED is a mysterious 7/5 ML favorite with a series of average works for the Robertson barn. Going to take a wait-and-see approach at that price. FIVE STAR CREEK has endured a couple of tough assignments after troubled starts. Expect better performance with clean break.

7: Monday Confession (Velazquez, Rengstorf)118/5-2

8: Luas Brio (Butler, Rhone)118/6-1

GOT EVEN SMARTER was second-best in futurity race and has been replenished with bullet work coming in. MONDAY CONFESSION slipped three-wide to the outside but came up empty in lone start down the stretch run. Expect to keep pace runners honest up front. SOCRATES CREATION won’t spend much time in the gate with his speed. Concern of carrying that speed to the stretch-run remains.

8: Major Player (Stevens, Arnett)123/8-1

9: Runaway Chance (Butler, T.Bethke)123/10-1

KILL SHOT definitely deserves another shot after getting bumped and losing his rider at the 7/16 pole. Strictly one to beat without all the dramatics. TRUE WEST was a ridden-out winner on the slop last out as the well-bet favorite. Ranked below top pick but moves up with moisture on the track. CHRIS MARS drops to lowest level in his career and will try to shake loose on the lead.

7: Joe Dunk In (Vergara, Diodoro)119/15-1

8: Doodle Hopper (A.Canchari, Robertson)123/2-1

DOODLE HOPPER should improve second off the layoff after running second-best as the chalk last effort. Expect better performance staying within striking range from the get-go. FINANCE ACCOUNT will be prompting the pace and is a legit player for win honors, has been very game in defeat. WOOD MACHINE is proven at this level but has been underneath far too often to be stamped in as top choice. Confirmed closer will be arriving late to the dance.

8: Thecausewaykid (Butler, Rhone)123/15-1

Maybe cutting back half a furlong will get SETNMUPKNOCKNMDOWN back to the winner’s circle. Warrants respect with his speed and HOF jockey Stevens aboard. POETIC POSER, MAKOSHIKA, and MR. FUZZYBOTTOM all make the drive up from Prairie Meadows with speed numbers that make them dangerous shippers.
