#6 LUCKY MOVE (4-1) exits a late running optional claiming score at this course/distance. Joel Rosario rides back and she might be able to step up and score again.

#2 Fetching (7-2) ran on turf three times for Mark Casse, and she fired trifecta shots each time, including a local entry level win as the favorite at this distance July 14. Her numbers are on the rise and she is bred to handle dirt. 

#5 Held Accountable (2-1) beat four rivals in an off the turf event at this distance at Aqueduct last fall. She owns competitive numbers but might take more money than she should. She is 0-for-3 at Saratoga and her connections are struggling at the current stand.

#1 Out of Orbit (3-1) should show speed from the rail, but I am not sure she wants to go this far.

#3 Cartwheel (9-2) is 3-for-14 overall, and she romped in her three wins. Her last two wins were off the turf races, including a 10-length claiming romp in the slop June 20.

#4 Turn and Bern (10-1) exits an easy allowance win at one mile. She weakened in her lone try at this distance.
