HALLADAY has been knocking on the door in sprints and is expected to benefit from this step up in distance. The improving One Mission and newcomer War Detonator make most appeal of the remainder.
EXULTING arrives on a hat-trick and could be tough to stop in his current form. Favorable Outcome is feared most, while a big run from Small Bear would also come as no surprise.
RHODE ISLAND kept on strongly over shorter here last time and promises to be suited by this stiffer test. Mini P and Course Correction can battle it out for the silver medal.
UNI battled on well when scoring by a head over 1m at Saratoga last time and is unlikely to go down without a fight now rolling up on a hat-trick. Dream Awhile and Hawksmoor are unlikely to be far away at the finish either.
CROSS MULTIPLY had My Mr. Wonderful back in third when landing the silver medal over 6f here last time and rates the one to beat. Devilry could take a forward step now eased in grade.
CANARSIE KID kept on strongly over the extended 5f at Saratoga last time and could relish this stiffer test. War Stroll and Blackjack Baby are both capable of playing minor roles.
TIMBER GHOST bolted up over 6f at Saratoga last time and looked one to keep on the right side of. The consistent Have Another and eased-in-grade Wine Not also enter calculations.
SUNNY RIDGE found Grade 1 company too hot to handle at Saratoga last time but is expected to make his presence felt on these terms. No Dozing and Patternrecognition are others to bear in mind.
TWO HOT BETTY is expected to step up on her latest effort at Belmont now her sights have been lowered. Sweet August Lady and Questeq could give the selection most to think about.
MY VICTORIA ROSE is expected to step up on her course effort last month now eased in grade and shades the verdict ahead of Quietly Quick and Truly Courageous, both of whom have place possibilities.
