CALL MY AGENT made up plenty of ground to finish on the heels of the principals on debut and could build on that encouraging effort here. Denver Sky has been knocking on the door and could do so again, while Royal Leige looks the pick of the newcomers.

Custom Infinity got the better of MAN OF BLUES when they met here last month, but in a subsequent outing the former was a well-beaten third, whereas the selection bolted up. Commander's Castle was a wide-margin winner here last time and is another to note.

Laughing Water historical data/form

SHALL WE DANCE may have been beaten 10 lengths into second two starts ago, but she in turn had over 10 lengths in hand of Ocala Cat, Shezagoldengirl and Woke Up In Chrome. Having gone on to get within a head of victory last time, Donald Blankenship's filly can strike. Glen's My Friend ran well enough in defeat latest to merit a place on the shortlist.

Dream Of Hero historical data/form

Beta Test has gone close the last twice, but they were turf races switched to the main track and she meets a proven dirt operator here in KISS N FOR FUN, who can build on a pair of third-placed finishes to land this. Special Conquest is interesting back up to a route.

First Squadron historical data/form

PRADO'S TRUST went agonisingly close to victory in a similar contest here last time and can gain reward for that effort if putting in the same sort of display. Sonny's Dream wasn't far behind the selection last time and has claims, as does impressive maiden winner Tsar Cannon.

LADY STORM obliterated her rivals from the front at Charles Town last time and could repeat the feat here. Team Freedom looks the biggest danger on her form in the mud here last month, though Longstorylucy could benefit from the drop back to this trip.

TRUFFLES AND GOLD hasn't been especially impressive the last twice at Charles Town, but he ran well for third in a more valuable contest when last tried at this track and gets the tentative vote in this. Flash K got off the mark in style at Thistledown and is respected, while General Direction despatched his rivals with some ease at Colonial last time.

Im A Patriot historical data/form

TIO MOSCO's race was run at the start after being bumped early last time and he may bounce back to the form that saw him win well here two starts ago. Those recent efforts give him a fitness edge over Two Bit Kid, who ran well in a stakes race at Prairie Meadows when last seen in May. Midland steps up in class after a near-miss here last time and he completes the shortlist.

Touch Of Emma has to be considered on the back of a close second at Fort Erie, while Crisis Averted filled the runner-up spot on her return to this track last month. Preference is for ABOUT A GIRL, who did the job well last time and could hang her rivals out to dry here.
