1 (1)Placed twice in four starts. Beaten a head by Heartfullofstars when second of 5 at 11-2 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 1m in March. Lost out by the narrowest of margins last time and a bold bid seems assured.
Corey Nakatani/Philip D Amato
2 (2)Placed once in five starts. Finished 2 3/4l behind More Honor when fourth of 12 at 18-1 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 6f (good) last month. Back to form last time and claims if building on that here.
Geovanni Franco/R Baltas
3 (3)Placed in five of 11 starts. Beaten 1 1/4l by Goodwillambassador when second of 4 at 7-2 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 7f last month. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Charles Treece. Added consistency to his performances and one for the shortlist.
Kyle Frey/Steven Miyadi
4 (4)Yet to place in six starts. Finished 4l behind Blame The Rider when sixth of 8 at 16-1 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 1m (good) last month. Place claims.
Martin Pedroza/Marsha Schwizer
6 (6)Half-brother to Mom'z Laugh, won six times at 6f and 7f. Finished 1 3/4l behind Blame The Rider when fourth of 8 at 14-1 on his racecourse debut at Santa Anita over 1m (good) last month. Caught the eye on debut and any normal amount of improvement would bring him firmly into calculations.
Tyler Conner/P Eurton
7 (7)Full brother to St. Somewhere, won three times at 7f and 1m. Beaten 7l behind More Honor at 60-1 when 11th of 12 on his racecourse debut at Santa Anita over 6f (good) last month. Easy to draw a line through.
Joseph Talamo/Carla Gaines
5 (5)Placed once in three starts. Third of 8 behind Gosilently beaten 2 3/4l at 19-5 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 1m 1f (good) in March. A son of the mighty Frankel and last two efforts read well in the context of this race.
