No. 1 Gold N Glitter (4-1) showed a new dimension when stalking and pouncing from the rail post in a neck victory June 11, and clear runner-up Zazen was a sharp next-out winner and is entered in this spot as well. She picks up sharp local rider Juan Gutierrez and they might try to duplicate her last trip.
No. 4 Slack Tide (8-5) took pace pressure in all three wins, including a clear score in the Seattle Stakes June 19. Kevin Radke hops aboard, and he is a quality speed rider.
No. 6 Koron (5-1) attended the pace and won all three starts last year including a pair of stakes. She dueled from the rail and just missed the show in her Seattle Stakes return June 19. Her winning rider Kevin Orozco stays put, and she might move forward in her second start after a layoff.
No. 2 Zazen (8-1) is a sharp class riser making her second start after the Dan Markle claim. She owns competitive speed ratings and should attend the pace.
