CUSTOM BLING has displayed enough in better races to suggest he could take plenty of beating now he is back in calmer waters. Open Up is another class dropper who enters calculations with A Higher Wager also respected after his latest third over an extended five furlongs here last month.

A Higher Wager
Alexis Batista/Cynthia Morrell
Age: 7
Weight: 8-11
Spotlight Form: 543453
SP
Placed in four of 18 starts. Third of 6 behind Mister Grasshopper beaten 3 1/2l at 3-1 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 5f last month. Knocking hard at the door but long losing run has to be a concern.

Open Up
Diego Saenz/Victor Arceneaux
Age: 6
Weight: 8-11
Spotlight Form: 35338/6-
SP
Placed in five of ten starts. Finished 8l behind Southside Shorty when sixth of 7 at 5-2 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 5f in August last year. Drops in grade and capable of making his presence felt.
3 (3)
Bless All
Odilon Martinez/Ronnie Averett
Age: 3
Weight: 8-6
Spotlight Form: 49-8949
SP
Unplaced in all six starts. Well beaten at 40-1 behind Sharp Machete when last of 9 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 6f last month. Will find easier opportunities than this.
4 (4)
Golden Data
Thomas Pompell/Lester Simon
Age: 3
Weight: 8-6
Spotlight Form: 867-
SP
Unplaced in all three starts. Well beaten at 22-1 behind Mister Frenchie when seventh of 8 on his latest outing at Fair Grounds over 1m (good) in December last year. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with John Hirdes. New connections quick to ease him in grade and market support would be interesting.
5 (5)
Old Pep N Step
Wallynette Rodriguez/Jonah Fuselier
Age: 4
Weight: 8-11
Spotlight Form: 863-753
SP
Placed twice in seven starts. Third of 10 behind Let's Go Boss beaten 2 3/4l at 16-1 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 5f earlier this month. Arguably posted his best effort to date last time and claims if repeating that here.

Grand Assembly
Luis Negron/Kenneth Hargrave
Age: 5
Weight: 8-11
Spotlight Form: 8/06763
SP
Placed once in ten starts. Third of 11 behind Don't Tell Sarah beaten 6l at 80-1 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 5f last month, his only placing from 10 starts. Exposed as moderate so far and best to look elsewhere.
7 (7)
Custom Bling
Ashley Broussard/Ricky Courville
Age: 3
Weight: 8-6
Spotlight Form: 6-22066
SP
Placed in four of 12 starts. Finished 9l behind Let's Go Boss when sixth of 10 at 7-2 on his latest outing at Evangeline Downs over 5f earlier this month. Displayed enough in better races to suggest he will be thereabouts.
