6 Awake At T Wire(L) 118 Ortiz 3-8-8 Nevin 5-2

7 Conzig(L) 116 Franco 7-5-4 Domino 5-1

Conzig never got going on wet surface last time but owns fast final figures on 'A' game; rebounds on dry land. Rosemarie notched improved pace figure in last and could be set for best in third start since two-month layoff. Starkers has finished second in both starts; right in the thick of this.

6 Much Stronger(L) 118 Cohen 2-6-2 Jacobson 2-1

8 Platinum Bombshell(L) 116 Franco 1-4-x Duggan 10-1

Platinum Bombshell tallied solid final fraction when a hard-charging winner in last; pairs up. Julesco coughed up a five-length lead in the stretch last time but should be tighter in third start since two-month layoff. Morethanvictorious packs a potent late kick on best efforts; don't ignore.

1a Steve Came Thru(L) 120 Garcia 3-7-x Chatterpaul 30-1

9 Gramma G G(L) 120 Velasquez 6-x-x Englehart 10-1

Zimbabwe Lady makes local debut after logging improved late pace figure in last at TP; call in weak field. L'S Escalator is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Birdsofafeather takes potent class drop but shows light work tab for first start in 50 days; must take the good with the bad. Gramma G G should move forward with race under belt.
