#6 HIERARCHY (8-1) is a sharp late runner with competitive recent numbers. Corey Lanerie rides him well and he is capable of running past this group at square odds.
#9 Empire of War (8-1) exits back-to-back victories for Michael Maker. His winning rider Tyler Gaffalione stays put and he will probably stalk the pace.
#11 Big Score (4-1) got back on the beam in a stalk and pounce optional claiming turf route win at Del Mar. The tepid favorite has back class and can get involved late under Flavien Prat.
