No. 7 Tactical Pajamas (5-1) is 6-for-11 at Presque Isle, and she exits a local state-bred route stakes win. The win type has stuck three times at this distance and figures to stalk the pace. 

No. 2 Cashable (5-2) is an early pressing type with good form on dirt and turf. Brad Cox’s Will Take Charge filly tries all-weather ground for the first time, and she is faster this year. Her lone sprint loss was a solid show finish in a five-panel turf stakes July 13.  

No. 8 Club Car (9-5) completed the exacta in five of her last six starts, and she landed the place in all three attempts over all-weather ground. She projects an outside stalking trip, but I would not want to take a short price on this one. 

No. 9 Can’t Buy Love (6-1) earned quality speed ratings in her last two turf sprints. She handles all-weather footing and might move forward in her third start after a layoff. 

No. 1 Maggie’s Bid (10-1) chased and scored in her last two local sprints in the optional claiming ranks. 


No. 7 to win
