No. 1 Curt’s Angel (4-1) stalked wide and just missed holding the place in a similar local flat mile spot July 5. The early-pressing filly lands the advantageous inside post in her third start after a layoff for a productive jockey-trainer team.
No. 5 Dixie Red (9-2) has captured several races at this course and distance. She owns the best overall pace ratings at a speed friendly distance.
No. 7 Accolades Galore (3-1) stalked inside and defeated my top choice July 5. She likes this course and distance and will have to work out a different trip from the outside post this time.
No. 3 St. Louie Arch (6-1) rallied to hit the board in both local starts this year at one mile. She might maintain form in her third start after a layoff, and another minor award is a definite possibility.
No. 1 to win
