4-Don’s Escapade – Offered another mild rally for minor spoils against statebreds last time, more of that positive form could translate into Turf success


3-Daddy’s Girl Crazy – Showed a bit more life when forced three wide again at a mile on dirt, cuts back & reunited with Gabriel Saez


6-Benanti - Finished in front of Silver Bouquet & Royal Cashmere & had some sneaky late run when she dipped in price, tries Turf for her third start off the bench


1-Silver Bouquet – Off slowly in her much needed debut & launched four wide into the stretch, logically benefits from that experience, tries Turf & lands inside a light field



3-Paparazzi Girl – Dropped in for a dime, broke her maiden in style & promptly claimed by Jorge Navarro, faced tougher at Monmouth, back on Turf brimming with confidence


4-Ah Honey Honey – Perked up when she shipped to Parx for two dirt sprints, a maiden break & second by a nose, returns to Turf & may be the one to catch


5-Hope For Tomorrow – Cutting back a sixteenth of a mile off an inspiring second with a mild rally here last Friday night against easier


1-Shesapridefulone – 1 for 22, toss out her latest on dirt, ran into road trouble in two previous starts, her numbers measure up here



7-Purely Boy – Reeled off three in a row with hefty numbers at Monmouth this Summer, nailed his latest despite traffic issues & looks to extend his form spree since the Jason Servis claim


2-Dr. Goldfarb – Just missed while drifting in a game effort in his second start off the claim by Pat McBurney, three-time winner at a mile figures to be part of the action


3-Cork County – Speedball has been breezing at Fair Hill Training Center after winning three of four this season, four for five at the distance, looks like the one to reel in


6-Sharp Omar – Hasn’t been strong in the win column, but his last three since the claim indicate noteworthy improvement



3-Arsenal – Recovered from an early stumble with a three wide bid for second against these at Monmouth, a similar effort puts her in play here with Paco Lopez aboard


4-Ceci N Red – Only 1 for 10 in 2014, caught wide in most recent & bumped before that, her big number at Parx on August 5 came with road trouble


2-This Kate Of Mine – 0 for 16 this season & stepping up in class off a pair of strong seconds on dirt, ran a couple of decent numbers on Turf at Monmouth


6-Issheit –Took four starts for the claim to pay off with an 8-1 upset at Parx two back, caught five deep at Keeneland last time at a mile + five sixteenths



5-Who’dathunk – Red-hot mare hooked up in a duel & settled for second again last time, just 2 for 29, and seems best when she can stalk n pop


1-Exclusive Sarah – Turned in a couple of decent efforts fresh off the claim on June 20 despite trip issues, back on Turf for trainer Tony Wilson, who went two-for-two last Friday


3-My Guardian Angel – Cutting back for her second start off the claim, excellent wire-to-wire win a mile + a sixteenth at Monmouth back on May 26


2-Silver Tresor – Has caught fire reeling off three straight blowouts over synthetic at Presque Isle Downs, tough to gauge how she measures up here



5-Happy Voyage – Pretty consistent since the claim back in March, favored in four of her last five & just missed with a three-wide bid in most recent


6-Archer Queen – Dropped back to the level of the Pat McBurney claim & rallied to a mild upset at a flat mile, threat to repeat


1-Swiss Army Wife – Finished third in the Little Silver on dirt, had traffic issues in her lone Turf try at Delaware Park two back, drops into a softer spot here


4-Danalake – Drops after facing second level allowance foes & switches to Paco Lopez, would benefit from a rallying scenario
