11 Ego Friendly(L) 117 Castellano 5-7-2 Kimmel 15-1

Seventy Six has trained strongly since besting two next-out winners when breaking maiden in last; more to give. Smokin Candy notched improved pace figure in last and could be sitting on big-time forward move on final numbers; very playable. Beyond Empire is right in the thick of this with return to dirt; must consider.

Binsky's Gold gets the meds in first start since claimed; very interesting. Elizabeth's Flair displayed ability when a close-up fourth in debut; right in the thick of this.
