#9 PRINCE DE PRINCE (3-1) hit the board in his last three starts including a nose defeat vs. similar local foes Aug. 20, and the show finisher was a next-out winner. The early-pressing type owns two local wins and his jockey and trainer have been clicking together recently. He earned improved numbers in his last pair. 

#7 Let’s Rejoice (7-2) is a first time gelding returning to preferred all-weather footing. He could not match strides with dirt sprinters in Southern California in his last pair, and showed speed and ran well in both local special weight sprints earlier this year. 

#1 Little Cents (6-1) is a new gelding with a 2-for-2 record at this distance, and he finished 1st or 2nd in five of six local outings. He exits a productive race and his last win was at this course and distance from the inside post. 

#2 Eustice (9-2) can be used underneath. He exits a runner-up finish at Del Mar and he graduated at this distance at Golden Gate. He is 1-for-13 with seven minor awards and might be a bigger threat underneath.
