#7 TOTALLY OBSESSED (4-1) ran well in her last two local dirt sprints at this distance. She earned quality pace ratings in both of those races and I like her early-pressing versatility at this speed friendly distance.
#1 True Cinder (6-1) won both of her starts earlier this year and this is her first outing in more than eight months. She frequently finishes in the top three at this course and distance, and she hails from a sharp layoff barn. She figures to save ground chasing the pace.
#5 Star Mabee (8-1) won four of her last five starts and the sharp seven-year-old mare should be in a good spot stalking the pace.
#8 Moonlit Mission (3-1) captured six of her last seven starts, and five of those wins were over a route of ground. The fresh, improving sophomore fillies sports back-to-back local bullets for this and figures to be finishing on the turnback.
#7 to win
