It only seems that way.\r\nAside from defending Breeders&rsquo; Cup Sprint winner Big Drama, very few of the top older sprinters in the country are missing from the 12-horse field entered in Saturday&rsquo;s Grade 2, $300,000 Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs. Four of the 12 horses entered are Grade 1 winners, including Capt. Candyman Can, Smiling Tiger, Noble&rsquo;s Promise, and Here Comes Ben. The latter two horses are making their first start of the year, which could leave them at a disadvantage.\r\nCapt. Candyman Can and Smiling Tiger have both won their last two starts, but perhaps Capt. Candyman Can holds a slight edge, given his affinity for the course, his 5-for-5 record at the distance, and the fact he&rsquo;s got Calvin Borel to ride.\r\nAfter missing his entire 4-year-old season due to a chip in a knee, Capt. Candyman Can came back with narrow victories in the Super Stakes at Tampa and the Sir Shackleton at Gulfstream. Trainer Ian Wilkes believes his horse is ready for a return to graded stakes company.\r\n&ldquo;I really feel the horse has improved since that race,&rdquo; Wilkes said, referring to the Sir Shackleton. &ldquo;I just like the way he&rsquo;s doing. He&rsquo;s coming back to form, which is hard to say given that he&rsquo;s won two stakes this year.&rdquo;\r\nSmiling Tiger, who finished third to Big Drama in last year&rsquo;s Breeders&rsquo; Cup Sprint, comes in off wins in the Grade 2 San Carlos at Santa Anita in February and the Grade 3 Count Fleet Handicap at Oaklawn on April 14.\r\n&ldquo;He had a really easy time of it in Arkansas and kind of thrived down there and came out of the race really well,&rdquo; trainer Jeff Bonde said.\r\nTrainer David Fawkes has Big Drama resting for later in the year but may have a suitable replacement in Apriority, who was only beaten 1 1/2 lengths by Morning Line in the Grade 1 Carter at Aqueduct. In his race prior to that, Apriority just missed the Gulfstream Park track record for 6 1/2 furlongs when winning an allowance race over Aikenite, who came back to win the Grade 2 Commonwealth at Keeneland and also is in this field.\r\n&ldquo;You look at the numbers, you could see he bounced a little, but hopefully we&rsquo;ll move forward again,&rdquo; Fawkes said.\r\nHere Comes Ben, away since running 11th as the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Dirt Mile favorite, defeated Big Drama in the Grade 1 Forego last summer at Saratoga and is a three-time winner here.\r\nCaptain Cherokee was beaten a head by Smiling Tiger in the San Carlos and a head by Amazombie in the Portrero Grande on April 3.
