#1 SAGUARO ROW (12-1) was my top pick in the Shine Again Stakes at Saratoga July 31, and she was clearly second best in an okay effort that day. Monday's slightly shorter trip helps, she should get pace help, and she can be along in time if she handles the footing. 

#2 Spring In the Wind (8-1) does her best work on all-weather ground, and she exits a clear place finish behind Monday's favorite Hotshot Anna in the Satin and Lace Stakes at six furlongs Aug. 19. 

#10 Hotshot Anna (3-1) is 3-for-3 at Presque Isle and 2-for-2 at 6.5 furlongs. She won the Presque Isle Masters (G2) in 2018, and an outside stalking trip is expected. 

#11 Misericordia (15-1) is a turf sprint specialist trying all-weather ground. She needs pace help and will try to get involved late.

#5 LEMOONA (8-1) was in too deep versus Beau Recall, Storm the Hill, and Vasilika in Del Mar's Yellow Ribbon (G2) on Aug. 3, and that race was too short for her. She is dangerous in long turf routes, and today’s rider Joel Rosario guided her to a big optional claiming win at a mile and an eighth at Santa Anita April 6. 

#1 Gaining (3-1) won a Group 3 affair in her final start in France last fall, and she ran well without winning in all three U.S. turf stakes outings. 

#6 Gentle Ruler (5-2) had her four-race win streak snapped in an even fourth-place finish in the Waya (G3) at Saratoga Aug. 4. She fits with these and can start a new win streak today. 

#8 Over Thinking (12-1) exits a neck defeat in a minor turf stakes marathon at Del Mar. She has won here before, and her new rider Jose Ortiz should have options with the versatile mare.

#7 OPERATION STEVIE (3-1) had his two-race win streak snapped in a late running show finish against this kind on Aug. 21. The hard-trying gelding can win this if he gets pace help. 

#9 Double Tuff (1-1) was claimed for $16,000 by Randy Matthews on June 16, and he easily won both local starts at this distance for his new trainer. He projects an outside stalking trip. 

#6 Wholelotachocolate (6-1) did not handle a turf route at all in a local stakes race Sept. 3. He is 4-for-5 on dirt at Indiana Grand, and is 3-for-4 sprinting.

#5 Nova (20-1) finished first or second in his last three local sprints. He must be considered a trifecta threat in his current form, and the price should be right.
