Double the Energy was a front-running winner at this level in last and fired swift 5-furlong drill on Oct. 3; very playable. Roses for Romney is speedy and should be aided by cutback to 7 furlongs.

12 Tony D(L) 115 Franco 5-12-5 Cannizzo 3-1

Guyana Princess should pack intensified late wallop with turnback to 6 furlongs. Trail Walker makes first start since claimed by white-hot Linda Rice barn. Darling Bridezilla fired half-mile bullet since tough-trip fourth in last; worth long look. Currency Union owns speed and fast figures on 'A' efforts.

12 Chloe Bear(L) 118 No Rider 3-3-10 Brown 3-1

Princess Mara notched three sharp works since last start and projects as the main speed with aggressive handling. Schillerette logged swift final fractions on Belmont turf this past spring; big-time threat on best. Strike Accord packs solid late kick and would be aided by hot fractions. Sophie's Turn is another that would benefit if pace is fast and furious.
