MARMALADE had She's Plain Jane well in arrears when second in a similar event here recently, backing up a victory over 6 1/2f from a few weeks earlier. She can maintain her good run of form, but Perennial and Forgiving are both capable of serving it up to her if putting last-start failures behind them.

Marmalade
Antonio Gallardo/Darien Rodriguez
Age: 5
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 12-6612
SP
Has won eight races from 5f to 1m. Beaten 1/2l by True Egyptian when second of 6 at 13-5 on her latest outing at Presque Isle Downs over 1m last month. Arrives at the top of her game and she will go close again.

She's Plain Jane
Jose Bracho/Glenn Wismer
Age: 4
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 145416
SP
Successful at 5f and 1m. Finished 18l behind True Egyptian when last of 6 at 3-1 on her latest outing at Presque Isle Downs over 1m last month. Won here before that and she needs to recapture that sparkle.

Perennial
Luis Garcia/J Egan
Age: 4
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 2-63616
SP
She has won three times from 7f to 1m. Finished 15l behind Magical when sixth of 7 at 16-1 on her latest outing at Laurel Park over 1m last month. Easy all-the-way winner before that so don't rule her out.

Hey Monba
Christian Pilares/Robert Gorham
Age: 5
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 146-129
SP
She has won four times from 5f to 1m. Beaten 13l behind Rose Tree at 75-1 when 9th of 12 on her latest outing at Presque Isle Downs over 1m last month. Dropping out of stakes company is to her advantage.

Pursuit Of Lute
Pablo Morales/Shelly Radosevich
Age: 4
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 53-3412
SP
She has won four times from 5f to 6f. Beaten 1/2l by Get Sassy when second of 7 at 2-1 on her latest outing at Presque Isle Downs over 6f earlier this month. Having her first run for a new stable today, previously with Tim Girten. Worth a crack at this stiffer opposition.

Forgiving
Scott Spieth/Jonathan Sheppard
Age: 4
Weight: 8-9
Spotlight Form: 115-828
SP
Successful twice at 1m. Beaten 5l behind Proud O'paddy at 12-1 when eighth of 12 on her latest outing at Laurel Park over 1m (good) last month. That wasn't her true running and she could easily bounce back.
