Yangtze River historical data/form

Mylittlerunaway has hit the crossbar on both her starts thus far and appears likely to be involved once again. It may, however, pay to side with a newcomer with Miss Ryleigh and the Jonathan Wong pair Kayla's Cowgirl and DYNASTY OF HER OWN all of interest. The last-named has displayed a good turn of foot on the gallops and gets a narrow vote.

Successful twice at 1m on good ground and on the all-weather. A winner at 16-1 at Golden Gate Fields over 1m (good) on her latest outing earlier this month, beating Live It Well by a short head, but further progress required in this event.

Northern Rose historical data/form

OUR BOLD PRINCESS had Hardsense one place behind when chasing home Babe Didrikson in a decent race here earlier this month. That form reads well in the context of this event and Eduardo Rich's filly is taken to land a third career success. Starza is also considered in a contest where few can be ruled out with confidence.

Independent Indy historical data/form

Last-time-out track-and-trip victor Brotherciccio is open to further improvement but may have to give best to CAPTAIN WAY. The selection accounted for Ari Herbertson's gelding at Fresno last month and will find this less exacting than his latest start around here. Aidan's Harbor and Independent Indy rate best of the rest.

BAY MUZIK found a Grade 2 at Keeneland too hot to handle when last seen out in April, but this claimer is a whole lot less demanding and he is fancied to make a winning return to action. Midnight Ming has the form in the book to be a contender at this level, while Pure Comedy can usually be relied upon to give his running.

Stocked historical data/form

ARNO'S MANE MAN appeared to have landed a brace when last sighted here in September, but he was disqualified for causing interference and placed sixth. Nevertheless, Jonathan Wong's gelding is clearly in fine form at present and is preferred to the down-in-class Ride Into The Sky. Last-time-out track victor Going Away Party is another to consider.
