8 Western Grit(L) 118 Lopez 3-6-8 Barbara 12-1

Western Grit was victimized by soft fractions last time and should offer best price potential of the contenders. Force Multiplier notched fast pace and final figures when winning last; very playable. Street Thug, another last-race winner from Jacobson barn, looms the controlling speed; be no surprise.

9 Fusaichi's Song(L1) 115 Esquivel x-x-x Englehart 12-1

American Creed makes first start with a maiden claiming tag and third outing since three-month layoff; set for best. Fusaichi's Song shows work tab that culminated with crisp half-mile breeze from the gate; could be the goods. Executive Office has finished second as the favorite in both starts; short-priced contender once again.

9 Run a Dubb Dubb(L) 118 Maragh 5-4-4 Persaud 8-1

Dixie Sparkle was a front-running winner in last and projects as the main speed once again. Guyana Princess packs potent late kick and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Sus Annmaries Gold gets favorable cutback to sprint; more than good enough on 'A' game.

Mental Iceberg gets significant class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; breakthrough predicted. Deceived was compromised by poor start in last and owns swift late pace figures on best; very dangerous.

8 Rap d'Oro(L) 113 Esquivel 3-4-1 Hushion 3-1

9 Life's a Roar(L) 118 Teator 4-10-7 Parker 15-1

Commodus notched rapid final fraction when a determined winner in last; pairs up. Dapper Draper owns speed, fast figs and razor-sharp current condition; big-time player. Rap d'Oro runs late and could be aided by today's added ground. Patriotic Duty is another that could benefit from stretchout in distance.
