#1 EXPECT INDY (7-2) exits back-to-back local dirt sprint wins, and this looks like a good time to stretch out and try turf. I am not sure about the new surface (0-for-1 on turf), but she can route, and Sanjur wins races with Cipriano. I like her running style versatility. 

#4 Marina's Legacy (5-2) won this race the last two years, and she tuned up for this event with an easy local flat mile turf allowance win vs. open company.

#12 Moves Like Magic (9-2) is a 3-year-old filly with a good record (5-for-8 with two 2nds). She likes to run on or near the lead and might have to hustle early to secure a decent early position. 

#3 French Legacy (10-1) stretches out and switches surfaces for quality trainer Bernie Flint. She should be in the hunt throughout. 

#5 Miss Artie (20-1) rallied to compete the exacta in this event last year. The 8-year-old mare packs a pretty good late kick from time to time, and she can grab a piece of this. 

#6 Obsolete (15-1) hit the board in her last pair. She likes finishing underneath and her late pace ratings are decent enough.
