Sunrise Royale historical data/form

Christy Jackson finished in front of Wandering Patrol and Mixed Emotions when runner-up over 5 1/2f here but may have to settle for a minor role again, this time behind SMILING ANNIE. Mark Glatt's mare returns from a break but has very few miles on the clock and should graduate beyond this sort of level before too long.

CAL'S GEM gave a really good account of himself on debut, leading for much of the race before having to settle for the runner-up berth. He can make it second-time lucky, although connections would be wise not to underestimate the newcomers Palace Prince, Scoring and Mickelson.

True Validity historical data/form

Not much separated Cavernndchipmunks and Devils Dance when they took minor honours here, while True Validity has been a good moneyspinner and now switches to Vann Belvoir. Moreisbetter looked good on her second start, although Kiana's Love and RAYANA struck at the first time of asking and the latter appears yet another smart prospect for Bob Baffert.

Puriano historical data/form

After accounting for subsequent winner Best Two Minutes over track and trip, TOUGH BUT NICE has twice gone down with all guns blazing, most recently in a $50k contest. He is worth sticking with while in such fine fettle but Giddymeister, who also arrives at the top of his game, may find this a step too far.

Ladymidtown historical data/form

MUCHO UNUSUAL was last seen making every post a winning one in the $200k California Cup Oaks in February, proving in the process that she stays this far and handles grass. She can pick up where she left off, possibly at the chief expense of Ladymidtown, although former Emmet Mullins inmate Posh Holly isn't out of it either.

Convince joined Doug O'Neill after winning here earlier in the month but she will need to improve to get to grips with RATHER NOSY, who has been performing with great credit in defeat since breaking through in January.

She has won three times from 1m to 1m 1f on good ground and on the all-weather. Well beaten at 11-2 behind Paradise Woods when fifth of 7 on her latest outing in the Grade 2 Santa Margarita Stakes at Santa Anita over 1m 1f in April. Good enough to get involved in the finish.

Lemoona historical data/form

PANTSONFIRE made a sparkling start to 2019, with Lynne's Legacy among those trailing in her wake in the Grade 3 Astra Stakes here in January, and she has been freshened up subsequently in preparation for what could be a profitable second half of the campaign. Zaffinah is a force to be reckoned with in this company, while Lemoona can't be ruled out either.

He has won four times from 6f to 1m. Won on his latest outing when 1-2fav in the Grade 3 Lazaro Barrera Stakes at Santa Anita over 7f last month, beating Manhattan Up by 3 1/2l. Classy customer who will give this a big shake.

Mucho Gusto historical data/form

ROADSTER may have come up short in the Kentucky Derby, but he was fancied for the Run For The Roses thanks to his victory in the Santa Anita Derby and can enhance Bob Baffert's excellent record in this contest. The main threat comes from within his own barn as Mucho Gusto was impressive when hammering Manhattan Up here. Visitant completes the shortlist.

Fort Dodge historical data/form

A race such as this is within Forecheck's compass judging by his two efforts last year, though it doesn't look like he has been easy to train and a safer option may be BORU, who had Seven Oxen behind him when runner-up over track and trip at the beginning of the month. Ohtani and Tequila Blanco are worth a mention too.
