2 Runningwiththelute - Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; Aaron Gryder has a few live mounts today.

5 Warren’s Tricia R. - Consistent sort gets the hot riding bugboy Drayden Van Dyke to take 5-pounds off; he’s improving daily.

3 Marv - Been away 7-months, but cashed a lot of paychecks at this bottom maiden class rung; Saul Arias is fine, will help the price.
