#2 PETULANT DELIGHT (7-2) shortens up a bit and returns to the starter allowance ranks. Speed horses breaking from inner posts are strong in local one mile races and he is probably the one to catch. He reconnects with his winning rider Mychel Sanchez. 

#1 Flat Out Flying (6-1) stretches back out in his second start since March 9. He owns three wins at this distance and fits with these on his best day. I am concerned about his lack of early interest. 

#8 Bob’s My Uncle (3-1) rallied for the show in his last two local starts. He does some of his best work at this distance and might be able to land a share. 

#6 Luvinmeiseasy (5-2) stalked and scored in a local slow early and fast late stater allowance affair at a mile and an eighth Aug. 17. The sharp gelding is 9-for-18 at Parx but 0-for-6 with zero top three finishes at this distance. 

#7 The Robert (5-1) might bounce back at this shorter distance in his third start after a layoff. He owns a trio of competitive numbers this year and will try to get involved late.
