No. 4 Guitar Woman (5-1) completed the exacta in all four starts and two of those were in the stakes ranks. She packs a decent late kick and might move forward in her second start after a layoff. 

No. 3 Free Drop Maddy (9-2) graduated in a similar stakes event second time out. She exits a wide show finish from the outside post in an extended sprint at Churchill Downs, and she could easily bounce back with a win in this spot. 

No. 6 Janet Is Ready (9-2) won three times in five outings including a pair of victories in the stakes ranks. The early-pressing type is a logical contender. 

No. 9 For Harper (8-1) rallied to hit the board in both wet track sprints. She should get pace to chase and might appreciate the added ground of this race. 

No. 1 Cajun Gumbow (7-2) captured two of her three dirt sprints. She exits a front running stakes win in the mud and should make her presence felt from the outset.
