Tough It Out historical data/form

Swamp Souffle had TEQUILA JOE back in third when victorious over a mile here but he isn't entirely reliable, whereas Mark Glatt's gelding usually runs his race and he can gain his revenge. French Getaway beat him at Del Mar in November but has come up short in allowance optional claimers since.

Slew South historical data/form

Hard to be confident about any of these, but MISS GEORGIE GAL was a pleasing second on her return from two years on the sidelines at Golden Gate. She at least has that run under her belt, whereas Kirsch Truffle hasn't been seen since last April but must still be considered. Give Slew South a second look too.

A winner at 6f. Finished 11l behind Shootin Money when last of 6 at 9-2 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 5f (good) last month. Bad Beat was second past the post there so he needs to pull out more.

You'reright Again historical data/form

PAPA TONY has the edge in experience over most of these and gained compensation for a couple of near misses with a breakthrough success over 6f here. His confidence will be buoyed and he can follow up, although Leatherneck, Princeofthenorth and Bad Beat should all make him work for it.

Tailback historical data/form

SKY JUMPER had Tyrannical Rex in arrears when finishing an excellent third on his first taste of competitive action. That outing will have only brought him on and he is preferred to Me Macho, who occupied the same position on his debut in a slightly less competitive race. Cape Point can beat Street Demand to third.

Moonoverthebayou historical data/form

TROMADOR is progressing with every outing and got on the scoresheet at the fourth attempt with a clear-cut win over 7f on the main track. He was always prominent so this trip isn't a problem, and he was placed on turf the time before. Factorial and Mayan Warrior drop in class and could give him most to think about.

Git On Your Pulpit historical data/form

Calder Vale has been picking up his share of minor money but he is a 24-race maiden, so a chance is taken on the fitness of BOWL OF SPAGHETTI. Peter Miller's gelding was fourth in a maiden special weight here back in April last year and could still make up into a decent performer. Git On Your Pulpit might figure too.

A winner at 6f on good ground. Finished 1 3/4l behind Desmond Doss when fourth of 8 at 12-5jt-fav on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 5f (good) last month. There could be more to come from him.

Foster Boi historical data/form

Push Through had some of these in behind when runner-up over slightly further here, but he is vulnerable to a couple of unexposed rivals. Wesphire and KAKISTOCRACY both built on debut seconds by going one better next time out, with the latter slightly more impressive.

Mother Mother historical data/form

HARD NOT TO LOVE took a massive step up in class in her stride when claiming Grade 1 glory in the La Brea Stakes, and she can continue on her upward curve. Mother Mother was only third on that occasion but has since beat Lady Ninja over 6 1/2f here, so she looks the primary threat.

Very little separated War Path and JURGEN when third and fourth over track and trip, but that was the latter's first run since leaving Charles O'Brien's Irish base so he can improve past his rival. There are stamina concerns surrounding Absolute Unit, while Pure Carmine is an interesting newcomer.
