#6 GUFO (5-2) rallied to win his last three starts for Christophe Clement, and he could easily run past these. He earned the best last race number in the English Channel, and scored at this distance in his start before that.

#3 Pixelate (3-1) always finishes in the top three for Mike Stidham. He can stalk or close and will probably be thereabouts. He did not get much pace help in the Audubon June 20, and ended up stalking and finishing an even 3rd. He should get more pace to chase this time.

#5 Me and Mr. C (8-1) is versatile and fairly consistent. He can hit the board.

#2 On Base (15-1) added blinkers and showed marked improvement second time out in an easy maiden victory at this distance March 1, and runner-up #7 Sunsation (6-1) came back to win his last two starts, including a victory over #1 Talking (12-1) May 30. The latter had trouble in his return and can move forward.
