No. 4 Uncle Truly (4-1) rallied for the show in his flat-mile turf bow, and the place finisher was a next-out winner. He stalked and smartly graduated at Woodbine second time out, and he might move forward again.

No. 7 Walley World (6-1) added blinkers and easily earned his diploma in a local turf route on Oct. 13. Manny Franco has been winning races with Chad Brown recently.

No. 9 Spirit Prince (3-1) is still a maiden after four starts, and he hit the board in his last three turf stakes routes. He was clearly second best as the beaten even-money favorite in the Awad Stakes on Oct. 28.

No. 10 Frontline Warrior (6-1) hit the board in his first two turf routes, and he rallied for the win in a productive flat-mile turf race at Keeneland on Oct. 12.

No. 11 Buffoon (6-1) moved forward from the outside post in a sharp turf-route maiden win at Keeneland second time out. He projects another outside stalking trip.
