9 Trickmeister(L) 116 Velasquez 4-5-3 Dutrow, Jr 8-1

10 Game Ball(L) 126 Maragh 8-4-7 Chatterpaul 50-1

Ron The Greek is a two-time winner at 10-furlong distance; close call in ultra-contentious JCGC. Hymn Book is more than good enough on 'A' game. Fort Larned has trained strongly since winning Whitney. San Pablo is riding a two-race winning streak and has ample room for continued development.

Barnards Galaxy tallied swift final fraction when second in last and now makes first start for dynamic Drawing Away/David Jacobson duo.

Hudson Miracle moves to grass after firing swift 5-furlong work.
