#7 VAULT (6-1) is a non-graded stakes winner with an affinity for this distance. The consistent filly might move forward in her third start after a layoff for Brad Cox. 

#4 Lady Apple (7-2) never got involved from a tough outer post in the Apple Blossom (G1) last time. She is five-for-seven at this distance, and a tactical trip is expected. 

#5 Gotham Gala (5-1) wired the field in this race last year, and it was contested at a mile and an eighth that day. She owns early-pressing versatility, and Arnaud Delacour has good stats with layoff runners. 

#8 Fashion Faux Paux (8-1) can be dangerous when she gets a clear early lead. Her recent form is dull, but she likes this oval and reunites with her winning pilot Daniel Centeno. 

#10 Lucky Move (8-1) should appreciate getting back around two turns. The New York-bred mare might be able to rally for a share. 

#11 Motion Emotion (5-1) owns early-pressing speed and competitive numbers, and might end up stalking wide from an outer post.
