No. 7 Climber (9-2) won her last four starts on fast dirt, including a pair of sophomore stakes scores. Her early-pressing versatility should serve her well in this spot.
No. 3 Buoy (8-1) stretched out and rolled to a convincing state-bred allowance win at this course and distance on Sept. 19. She may have wanted to route all along and might be able to step up and take this stakes event at playable odds.
No. 2 Fireball Baby (5-2) gamely captured her local stakes return and might run a bit faster in her second start after a long layoff. The early-pressing mare was part of the exacta in her last five starts.
No. 8 Hungarian Princess (7-2) should make her presence felt from the outset. She finished a neck behind Fireball Baby last time and might have a bit more to offer in her second start after a short layoff. She might be best sprinting.
No. 1 Bumble of Love (6-1) rallied to win her last two local turf routes. She handles dirt and can get involved late if the pace heats up.
