AFLEET AHEAD makes his debut in what looks a very winnable contest on paper and the $8,000 yearling is expected to have been well readied for this at home. The market may be able to shed further light but keep an eye on Genius Cat and Clever Choice.

Verdict

Distinct Honor wouldn't be winning out of turn here but preference is for the debutante MAXIMOTION. With many exposed sorts in the race, he may just prove too good on his first run and, if market vibes are positive, a big run could be on the cards. Cab's Here rates best of the rest.

GLOBAL POWER will arrive full of confidence after his workmanlike victory over this trip at Aqueduct last time and could take some stopping if in the same mood tonight. Summertime Sal, also a winner at Aqueduct latest, makes plenty of appeal, while Lubango is no forlorn hope if putting his best foot forward.

KAT'S HOPE barely had to break into a sweat to score over 6f at Penn National last time and, with that confidence booster under his belt, he could follow up despite the rise in class. Frappe La Rue and Risque Getaway are others worthy of consideration.
