AVERY MAEVE shades the verdict in a fiercely competitive heat. She was nailed right on the line over the same trip at Aqueduct when last sighted and is sure to go close with a repeat display. Awsum Roar was also caught in the dying strides last time and can figure prominently again, while Ruby Warrior could be anything at this stage.

Verdict

FREELOAD caught the eye when a staying-on second over 6f at Aqueduct last time and he might be able to open his account now stepping back up in trip. Lil Commissioner has shown enough on his last couple of starts to suggest that he can go close, while Tom's Music might improve for being gelded.
