Deb's All Out was a couple of lengths in front of DANCING GRACE when they took minor honours over 5 1/2f at Thistledown, but Rodney Faulkner's filly might appreciate this distance more and can improve past her rival. Throw Ohio Storm and Edge into the mix as well.

Cumber had Royal Blue Boy close up in third when completing a Belterra double, but his hat-trick bid could be thwarted by STATESBORO. The son of Majesticperfection made the frame in a Thistledown route last time, but will appreciate this test more. Peanuts Perfection and Sal The Turtle aren't out of it either.

Ten lengths separated BLANCONIA and Laissez Faire when they were third and fourth at Thistledown just under two weeks ago, and Valerie Shanyfelt's mare can confirm that superiority en route to regaining the winning thread. Graduatewithhonors and Stormy Justice are her biggest dangers.
