Home It Tiz is interesting following a long time off the track, while Allured is the pick of Chad Brown's duo and has to be on the shortlist. However, preference is for the ultra-consistent RUCKSACK, who has made the podium on eight of the last nine occasions.
A competitive affair which could go the way of POSHSKY, who has scored in two of his last three and impressed when justifying favouritism at Belmont last time. Giant Run has knocked on the door the last twice and is respected, with Astounding and Tricked Up others for the shortlist.
SUPPORT OUR CAUSE has knocked on the door the last twice and can go one better here to see off the improving Pragmatist and Huracan, who should give his running.
IT'S A LOVELY DAY caught the eye with a good effort on her debut when third at Saratoga and she can go two better at the expense of Pendolino and Rose Of Dublin.
EMERALD QUALITY showed more when third on her latest outing and can get her head back in front in a contest that doesn't look particularly strong on paper. Scripted and Formal Event look best of the remainder.
QUEEN MEDB performed well in two starts for Ger Lyons in Ireland earlier in the year and she rates the one to beat on her US debut. The other experienced runners look fairly moderate so it's best to concentrate on the newcomers in terms of dangers. Of those, stablemate Optimization and William Mott's Delta's Kingdom make most appeal.
GLOSSY would have got up in another few strides over this trip at Belmont last month and, with that first outing since late July sure to have blown any cobwebs away, she could regain the winning thread. Tapping Colors warrants respect after bouncing back to form at the same track latest, while Jimi Bags is an unexposed performer to note.
Peril and Puffery both have valid form claims but the nod goes to MY WON LOVE, after her victory over C&D last week.
SALT POND created a big impression when winning a maiden at Laurel last month and she should be capable of winning a race of this nature. Others to note are Merlins Muse and Bella's Game.
