#2 RISKY MANDATE (9-2) fired in all four outings including a course/distance allowance victory last summer. She earned a decent number in a runner-up finish in her Churchill return June 28.
#5 Indian Pride (6-5) is a lightly raced filly with speed, and she owns solid numbers. Chad Brown’s filly cruised in her local debut last summer, and returned with a sharp allowance win at Belmont June 20.
#10 Please Flatter Me (8-1) has had success at this specialty distance. She fits with these and can spice up the exotics.
#9 Blamed (7-2) has been an all or nothing sort recently. She either wins easily or finishes up the track. Based on her recent zigzag pattern, she should run well today.
