#3 RING OF FIRE (9-2) might be dangerous turning back in distance. He attended the pace and ended up 3rd in his dirt sprint debut at Fair Grounds, and stretched out, battled on the pace, and weakened in a route at Oaklawn Park second time out. Cipriano Contreras has him now and he might get brave if he secures the early lead. 

#4 Cash Now (7-5) is probably live right out of the box for quality trainer Brad Cox. Dam’s other eleven starters won, and this one fired a gate bullet at Keeneland back on April 3. 

#11 Rob the Rich (5-1) broke slow and rallied wide for 3rd in his debut for Larry Jones, and he was claimed out of that heat for $20k by Randy Matthews. The clear runner-up from his debut was a next-out winner, and he needs an alert beginning this time.   

#8 Benny (6-1) hit the board in two of his last three maiden claiming dirt sprints. He might be good for a share in his first start in more than ten months.
