#1A MISCHEVIOUS ALEX (6-1) might be the right one to excel at seven panels. He went all the way in his local 4.5 furlong bow, missed by a neck at Laurel second time out, and was a close 3rd in the Sapling at one mile Sept. 1. He was no threat from the outside post in the Laurel Futurity over a route of ground on turf Sept. 21, and he adds blinkers, turns back, and returns to dirt. He fired a local bullet for this Oct. 22. #1 Johnny Ritt (6-1) added blinkers and looked good in his local PA-bred maiden win Sept. 16. He is back on dirt after finishing up the track in an all-weather stakes affair at Presque Isle. 


#3 Ny Traffic (5-2) looks like the one to beat. He hooked subsequent Nashua (G3) winner Independence Hall in his local extended sprint bow Sept. 21, and was a solid 3rd at 47-1 that day. He removed blinkers and easily won his second local start at 14-1 odds Oct. 12, and earned a quality number at six furlongs in that race. 


#5 Golden Candy (7-2) owns ascending numbers and exits back-to-back wins at 5.5 furlongs. Can he stretch his speed this far? I like his early-pressing versatility.
