Magarita Man understandably found the trip on the sharp side when dropped back to the extended 5f here last time as his best form has come over a mile. He may be tapped for toe again, so preference is instead for the unexposed MY BOY RUDY, who is expected to step up on his Santa Anita fifth last time now eased in grade. Any money for Cowboy Swagger on debut would be worth heeding.

Unplaced in both starts. Finished 10l behind Cal Cal Li Gowchis when fifth of 10 at 14-5 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 5f in June. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Mark Glatt. A danger to all now he drops in grade.

Unplaced in all three starts. Finished 13l behind Ralph Jacobs when fifth of 6 at 16-1 on his latest outing at Fresno over 5f last month. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Ryan Kenney. Needs to raise his game a notch in order to trouble the principals.

Unplaced in all five starts. Well beaten at 50-1 behind Beach Mode when last of 7 on his latest outing at Emerald Downs over 1m in September. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Tony Canady. Has plenty to find with Magarita Man (second) on that evidence.

Full brother to Dreamstone Cowgirl, won three times at 5f. Making his racecourse debut tonight and worth a market check to ascertain the level of confidence behind his chances.
