#6 HOROLOGIST (4-1) flopped in the Raven Run (G2) Oct. 19, and the extended sprint distance was not her friend that day. She started getting good when she stretched out. She won four straight between a flat mile and a mile and a sixteenth, including the Monmouth Oaks (G3). Joe Bravo rides her well in these longer events and she will probably stalk the pace.

#3 Queen Bee to You (3-1) has really gotten good for AndreLerner. She cruised in the Betty Grable vs. state breds at seven panels Nov. 17, and followed that up with a sharp score in the Bayakoa (G3) at 8.5 furlongs at Los Alamitos Dec. 8.

#7 Spiced Perfection (5-2) was absolutely handed the Go for Wand (G3) at one mile around one turn at the Big A Dec. 7. She probably will not get an easy lead in this spot and will take more win money than she should. Joel Rosario rides the early-pressing contender.

#1 Der Lu (4-1) is lightly raced with upside for the productive Drayden Van Dyke/Bob Baffert team. A ground saving stalking trip is expected.
