#9 POTENTIAL GRIZZLY (5-1) elevated his speed figures in his last two dirt sprints at Charles Town. The 5-year-old gelding is back at his winning distance and has definitely improved this year. He will probably stalk outside. 

#3 Rush to the Castle (8-5) is a solid early-pressing threat at low odds. He captured his last two local sprints and looks like the one to catch. 

#2 Out of Cents (9-2) earned an improved number in a local extended sprint victory March 14. The West Virginia-bred gelding seems to do his best work at seven panels.
