#8 MIAMI SMUGGLER (6-1) earned the best last race number in a clear place finish in a $25k/2L dirt sprint at Tampa Bay April 14. He graduated at this course/distance last September and should sit a decent stalking trip under his winning rider Ronald Allen Jr. 

#3 Getyourmindright (7-2) looks like the inside speed under Pablo Morales. He defeated a couple of next-out winners in his all-weather maiden win at Turfway Feb. 16, and he could not keep pace in a turf sprint at Keeneland last time. Trainer Stephen Lyster has good stats with his turf/all-weather starters. 

#7 Bowman (5-1) won a local optional claiming race at this distance when last seen September 2018.  The 3-year-old gelding should show speed. 

#1 I'm Corfu (4-1) and #1a Rapa Iti (4-1) are both multiple winners at Presque Isle. Both halves of the entry drew outer posts.  

#2 That's Buckbeak (8-1) likes this course/distance and fired a local bullet for this April 24. He is an exotics contender at the very least in his first start since October 2018.
