Shaena Bue historical data/form

Shaena Bue could build on a fair third here, but the nod goes to BLACK CANDY. Wilfrido Montano's gelding has placed eight time in 12 starts at this track and may have been found an ideal opportunity to open his account. Malpractice Mike caught the eye in a workout a week ago and is another to take seriously.

Successful twice at 6f. Beaten 20l behind Morgan's David at 100-1 when last of 8 on her latest outing at Mountaineer Park over 6f last month. Her form is heading in the wrong direction.

Ms. Nineoneseven historical data/form

Dixie Red had three of today's rivals behind when second last time and should be happier up in trip, while Sonny's Dream was an emphatic scorer over a mile here and is interesting if effective at this distance. Preference is for VOLOGDA, though, as she was imperious in bounding clear of her rivals last time and could be tough to beat over the same track and trip.

Zooming Zoey historical data/form

KITTY'S PROMISE was well beaten in a more valuable Churchill Downs maiden last time but she got within a length of success at Keeneland in October and could prove a tough nut to crack. Arbanne is another interesting class dropper, while Untapped Energy impressed on debut and can go well too.

Lily's Secret historical data/form

YURUBI was pitched into a valuable allowance race last time and understandably came unstuck, but the return to this grade could see her repeat her two impressive victories here. Cat Lak is chasing a hat-trick so has to be respected, while Lily's Secret and Almighty Storm also have viable claims.

Big Hunk blitzed the field over a mile but this big drop in trip is an obvious concern, especially as QUIETLY CUBA is likely to be at it from the bell. Walter Bish's gelding had Far's Chief and Chairman Garey well in arrears when second last time and can confirm that form en route to a victory.
