Race 4:
Kitty Maddnes (#4)

Was blocked in traffic during the stretch drive last time.
Showed that she was good enough to win a race at this level last year.
Should get a fair pace to close into with a couple of key speed types in the field.
5-2 on ML

Race 7:
Free N Clear (#8)

Has been overmatched in her recent starts in 2017.
Ran plenty of races last year that suggest she can compete at this level.
Should appreciate getting back on a firmer turf course.
20-1 on ML

Race 9:
California Swing (#1)

Is more of a turf horse despite making recent starts on dirt.
Was blocked in traffic down inside in the stretch of his only turf-route attempt.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Clement is 8 for 12 (67 percent) with a $6.40 ROI with horses going from dirt to turf in maiden-claiming company.
