Reneesgotzip P. Miller E. Maldonado Ran very well hitting the board in this race the last two years; sharp in her prep; third time the charm? 7-2 5-1
Silentio G. Mandella V. Espinoza Has never started on the downhill because he's been competitive with stronger milers; dangerous 5-1 8-1
Sweet Swap J. Sadler C. Nakatani Tough spot to return from a seven month layoff, but he's proven on the dowhill and runs well fresh 10-1 12-1
Tightend Touchdown J. Servis J. Castellano Was a dead-heat second in this last year with Reneesgotzip; light recent work tab is cause for pause 15-1 8-1
Ambitious Brew M. Jones M. Smith Nosed in the Eddie D., the local prep for this; can certainly improve second start off 7 month layoff 12-1 12-1
Bobby's Kitten C. Brown J. Rosario His third in the Woodbine Mile was a good effort, and he's interesting off the distance turnback 8-1 10-1
Marchman K. Desormeaux K. Desormeaux Another who is eligible to improve off his recent return from a freshening, but he will have to improve 30-1 12-1
Something Extra G. Cox E. Da Silva Little really wrong with his form, it's just that contention here runs so deep, and he has no real edge 20-1 20-1
SCR Free as a Bird I. Wilkes T. Baze      
Home Run Kitten D. Hoffman J. Talamo Got up in the Eddie D., showing improvement off the cut back in distance others are emulating here 12-1 12-1
Undrafted W. Ward  J. Velazquez Has a license to improve off a third in his return following a fourth in a Gr. 1 at Newmarket in July 15-1 8-1
Dimension C. Murphy R. Moore Signalled a return to top form with his recent KD win; was a non-threatening fifth in this race last year 20-1 12-1
Caspar Netscher D. Simcock P. Smullen Wheeling back quickly after winning the Nearctic, a performance far better than his recent Euro tries 10-1 10-1
No Nay Never W. Ward L. Dettori Won the Woodford off seven month absence to remain perfect on turf; has no downhill experience 6-1 9-2
Ageless A. Delacour J. Leparoux Developed into a useful turf sprinter, but she would be facing much, much better here 30-1 20-1
  also eligible          
Za Approval C. Clement R. Bejarano Was second to Wise Dan in the Mile last year; his form this year has slipped quite a bit 15-1 20-1
