SHESWILDNFREE romped home by four lengths here last time and rates the one to beat in her current mood. Trinitys Turn holds Paschalitsa on their latest run and could be the one to give the selection most to think about.

TEXAS TWO STEP looked on good terms with himself when striking over the extended 6f here last month and has the speed needed to remain competitive over this slightly shorter trip. Distinctive B and Well Measure are holding their form well and are others capable of taking a hand.
