VELVET QUEEN ran a blinder when fourth in Grade 3 company at Del Mar last time, particularly as she was slowly away and then didn't appear to get home. Dropped in both trip and grade for this assignment, she is fancied to come out on top. There are plenty of others with claims, however, including Shut It Up and Apache Princess.
