Verdict

Aroostook can go well in search of a C&D four-timer but may have to give best to impressive last-time-out winner Philippian and RUTH LESS BLUE. The latter hacked up in a similar C&D event two starts ago and gets the nod now back down in class and trip.

VIA LEONE completed a double when making all in this grade over 6 1/2f latest and may take some catching again here. If he fails to gets home over this extra half a furlong then Allen's Castle, who was a good second latest, could be the one to capitalise.

DETERMINED VISION landed a much more valuable event on turf at Laurel latest and, with winning form on this surface in the book, he is taken to stage a follow up. Roman Officer has been running well in defeat and rates a big threat, while Gabbi's Amor won a lesser event in style last time out and must be respected.
