Analysis:
DEAN'S KITTEN's workmate, Cater to Kitten, finished second to a runaway debut winner here last week. With high-profile trainers such as Wesley Ward and Steve Asmussen sending out babies in this spot, Dean's Kitten may fall a bit under the radar in the wagering.
DP THE FACILITATOR goes out for a promising first-crop sire, and Wesley Ward's statistics with juvenile debut runners are out of this world. The chestnut wouldn't be a surprise under Robby Albarado.
ZIPATRON is bred both sides for speed, and should go off a solid price.
FOOT THE BILL is a Ward baby that attracts Garrett Gomez. Don't be surprised if this New York-bred is a runner. EVERYDAY HERO seems to be working just a tad better than uncoupled entrymate RED OAK RIDGE. HEAVENVILLE debuts for Steve Asmussen, and that makes him almost an automatic contender.

Selections:
1. Dean s Kitten
2. Dp the Facilitator
3. Zipatron

The Play:
Dean's Kitten to Win at 3-1 or more
