Winner of five races from 4f to 6f on good ground and on the all-weather. A winner at 17-2 at Mountaineer Park over 5f on his latest outing earlier this month, beating Drinkinatthebar by a head. Capable of building on that excellent return to action.

Royal Silk historical data/form

One Buck Roma isn't guaranteed to repeat his recent all-the-way triumph, whereas ALL ABOUT READY is consistency personified and deserves compensation for his recent near-misses. Icy Interlude made a successful return to action here and is a big danger.

Home Power historical data/form

MAX'S LAST wasn't beaten far at all in a 50k event at Suffolk Downs, having finished just ahead of Bull Bailey when third here previously. He sets the standard, although Lemon Again went close on his latest appearance and could give him something to think about.

Heart In Hand historical data/form

All eyes will be on Walkin Princess, who has won 11 of her 15 career outings and is unbeaten at this track. She hasn't been seen since September, though, so is passed over in favour of LOVE SICK KITTEN, who rattled off a hat-trick before holding his own in a Presque Isle allowance contest. King Valero and Frontliner are others to consider.

Acumen will find this tougher than the two events she won here in May, while this is at the lower end of Classic Arch's distance spectrum. Maddymax doesn't know how to run a bad race but she was pipped by BAYTOWN LINDY here a couple of starts back and Paul McEntee's filly can confirm that superiority, however marginal.

M J Gold did it well on her belated debut and could be anything, but it is safer to stick with the proven ability of QUICK ENERGY. The Crystal Richison-trained four-year fared better than Glitzy Gala, Legendarys First, True Purpose and Miz Machen when runner-up for the third race in succession, and today could be her day.

Wolfblade made it three wins from her last four starts - all at Charles Town - but she may have met her match in FOXY MISCHIEF. Matt Shirer's filly has acquitted herself well in a couple of good Churchill Downs races and will find this easier. Dylan Did It and Time And Chance also merit respect.

SAHARA GOAL had Cobra Kid a length and a position behind him when a back-to-form second over track and trip, and he can regain the winning thread now if reproducing the level of that form. Wherever he finishes, Cobra Kid will be thereabouts again, and Dang It Cassie can also feature.
