#6 SEXY DEXY (7-2) stalked, took the lead, and ended up a close 3rd in a similar local spot at 6.5 furlongs Oct. 7. He drew well, adds blinkers, and might sit the right tactical trip under Ry Eikleberry. 

#8 Unleash the Beast (5-2) is a fairly consistent early-pressing gelding. He almost always takes action but frequently disappoints as the favorite (lost 4 straight as chalk). 

#1 Agent Gibbs (4-1) easily went all the way in both starts at Prairie Meadows. He fired a local bullet for this Nov. 19 and should show speed from the rail. 

#3 Dakota (5-1) removed blinkers and ran a much improved race in a local wire job vs. special weight foes at 5.5 furlongs Oct. 14. The fresh gelding continues to work fast and should make his presence felt throughout.
