#3 HITTERS PARK (5-1) moves to the sharp Norm McKnight barn following a rallying show finish in a $50k claimer at this distance at Churchill June 7. He stalked, pounced, and captured an optional claiming turf sprint at the distance at Del Mar last fall. 

#2 Perfect Forester (3-1) went all the way in a local $20k claimer on yielding ground as the chalk at 6.5 furlongs June 22. He should make his presence felt throughout and could easily maintain sharp form in his third start after a layoff. 


#10 Jacks Escarpment (5-2) stalked fast fractions and pulled clear late in a local $25k claimer on all-weather ground at 6.5 furlongs June 14. He projects an outside stalking trip and figures right there if he handles turf.  

#4 Forest Brother (6-1) was nabbed out of his last for $25k by Martin Drexler, and he shows a +ROI first after the claim. He turns back in distance and is a capable turf sprinter. 

#5 Goldtown (15-1) is interesting on the surface switch for quality trainer Ross Armata Jr. She exits a decent runner-up finish in an optional claiming dirt sprint at Finger Lakes, and she wired optional claimers in a local turf sprint last fall.
