#9 SEVEN NATION ARMY (6-1) is a sharp early-pressing type with competitive numbers. The 2-time local winner likes this distance and should maintain form in his third start after a layoff.
#8 Candy Cornell (3-1) exits a big local entry level score in the mud. He frequently finishes in the top three at this distance and should be forwardly placed.
#4 Silver Ride (4-1) is Candy Cornell's stablemate, and he is entered for the $62.5k tag. The 8-year-old gelding can compete here if he runs back to his course/distance win in the mud Jan. 24.
#3 Augie (6-1) is 3-for-24 with fifteen 2nd or 3rd place finishes. He projects a stalking trip and can be used underneath.
#6 Twelfth Labour (4-1) landed the show in his last three outings at this distance. This is his first start at Oaklawn Park and he is not out of this.
#7 Strolling (6-1) exits a late running win in a local six furlong affair vs. $50k claimers. He does some of his best work at this course and distance.
