Congrats Golda was just a quarter of a length behind the selection that day and should give another good account, while Sheza Sassy Lady is an interesting newcomer.

First And Goal finished third that day and can show up well again, while Power Hitter, who unluckily hit the rail and unseated his rider in the same event, also has a chance.

My Cowboy and Pep The Champ arrive in decent form and both should land a blow on their best performances. However, the vote goes to TRISMEN, who looks capable of taking advantage of a drop in class.
