9 Susan B Good - Could be one of the shorter priced favorites today; of course, being a chalk in week one was the kiss of death.

1 Euroclydon - Like the rail post on this turf course; can save all the ground and find room to rally turning for home.

Long Shot - 7 Three Blondes

Race 3 - 1 mile, Purse $24,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Winninginfashion - Woke up with a career best effort in last; leap of faith that there is one more step of improvement left in her.

9 Mizzilli - This ship and win invader looks to have a puncher’s chance to upset; strong synthetic resume at Turfway and PID.

7 Mal Verde - Has run two big turf sprints under his best; speed to lead but suspect can rate if asked by Drayden Van Dyke.

2 Gangnam Guy - Class relief from the Echo Eddie stakes for this; Mike Smith has been selective with mount, and winning a lot.

Race 6 - 1 mile, Purse $38,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 Dublin Dancer - Has a sterling synthetic resume from Golden Gate Fields; like the key vote coming from Rafael Bejarano.

3 Raised a Secret - A tip from opening week was to look for horses who have won at Del Mar; this guy has a shot at a square price.

Race 8 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 6 feet), $90,000 Wickerr, 3-year-olds and up

5 No Jet Lag - Talented enough to run in the BC Mile behind Wise Dan; this is a softer spot for return, but he has bigger fish to fry.
