#8 GAMBLER ROCKET (5-2) might be in complete command of the pace in this spot. He fired in both local maiden sprints and overcame trouble to graduate as the even money favorite Sept. 7. Pablo Morales sticks with the $210k purchase and he has stamina influences on the dam side of his pedigree. 

#5 Souper Highvoltage (9-5) was not able to quicken effectively in his four sprints, and this two turn affair might be right up his alley. He adds blinkers and shows back-to-back Fair Hill bullets for this, and he should be competitive at low odds.  

#1 Blizz (8-1) stretched out and improved nicely in a slow early and fast late dirt route maiden victory at Finger Lakes Aug. 19. He should save ground before launching his rally, and he is a tad interesting if he handles all-weather ground. 

#3 Bijemini Slew (6-1) is another Finger Lakes shipper. He graduated in a dirt route Aug. 6 and exits a distant show finish in an entry level allowance affair.
