If K P PERGOLISCIOUS produces anything like the form that saw her finish second in the American Oaks here last month, then surely her class will see her to the line over this longer trip. This distance is likely to suit Pantsonfire, who has been running on well over shorter of late, while it may be too soon to completely write off Bob Baffert's Italian import Plein Air.

She has won three times from 1m to 1m 1f on good ground and on the all-weather, but last win was over two years ago. Finished 2l behind English Dancer when fourth of 10 at 8-1 on her latest outing at Santa Anita over 1m (good) in December last year. Has been running well in a lesser grade, but might find this company too hot.
