#8 LOVE YOU MUCH (10-1) gets pace to chase in his first start of the year. He wrapped up his campaign in the fall the last two years, and he returned in May and landed the place in his first start after a layoff in 2018 and 2019. A similar layoff pattern is present, and he figures to be heard from late.  

#11 Tricks to Doo (3-1) is another with the ability to pass horses, and he is probably ready to roll in his first start in more than eleven months for sharp layoff trainer Arnaud Delacour. He is a stakes winner on dirt and stakes placed on turf. 

#1 Completed Pass (5-2) might be the speed of the speed from the inside post. The win type shows back-to-back bullet workouts for this, and he returned from a similar layoff and romped in his first start of 2019. 

#12 Powell (15-1) is a first time gelding with early-pressing speed, and he has multiple bullets in his holster for Mike Stidham.
