No. 5 Moonchild (3-1) exits a game victory as the favorite in the slop at Parx. The early-pressing filly enjoys this distance, and she landed the place in her lone local try in a similar spot in August. 

No. 6 My Dixie Lass (4-1) might appreciate the surface switch. The tactical sophomore filly runs well on dirt and might work out a cozy stalking trip. 

No. 1 Will Take Roses (6-1) followed up a sharp front-running win in the slop in the local claiming ranks with a show finish at this level. She is back at her winning distance and should be forwardly placed from the advantageous inside post. 

No. 7 Tweet Away Robin (9-2) did not run well in a productive flat-mile allowance affair at Laurel Park last time. She has won at this distance before and probably will stalk while out in the clear.
