Dr. Troutman historical data/form

DR. TROUTMAN has picked up his fair share of minor honours, most recently when beating Fast As Cass to the runner-up berth over track and trip, and as that was his first run since July, he should step forward and go one better. Combat Zone, Big Sky Logan and the long-absent Broke Away Grey are others to consider.

Info's Treasure historical data/form

THANKS held her form well in defeat at the beginning of the year and has been freshened up. She can show the benefit of that by breaking through and is preferred to Lucky Brite Eye, who left her ordinary debut behind when upped to a route here. Better is also expected from Info's Treasure now that she has a run under her belt.

Successful at 5f and 6f on the all-weather. A winner at 16-5 at Golden Gate Fields over 5f on her latest outing last month, beating Strip It Down by 2 1/2l. Ex-British filly who apparently loves it Stateside.

Left Alone historical data/form

Point Hope was a length and a position adrift of Kentan Road when third over C&D, but she was having her first outing since leaving Richard Hannon so could improve past her rival. She was rated higher than LEFT ALONE when trained in the UK, but the daughter of Reckless Abandon hasn't looked back since joining Manuel Badilla and can make it three from three.

True Validity historical data/form

True Validity came within a whisker of completing a hat-trick here and holds Queen Of The Track and Boolicious. She faces a couple of exciting debut winners, though, and while Interesting Times did absolutely nothing wrong, SMILING ROSE looked a potential class act when making all over 7f.

HARDBOOT has been a regular in stakes company throughout the past year and his recent fourth over track and trip came on the back of a break so will have put him spot-on.

99

Placed in three of five starts. Third of 10 behind Juggles beaten 1 1/2l at 13-5 on his latest outing at Santa Anita over 5f (good) earlier this month. He is wearing blinkers for the first time and he surely won't remain a maiden for too much longer.

Placed twice in three starts. Finished 5l behind Policy when fourth of 8 at 19-5 on his latest outing at Del Mar over 5f in August last year. Major player if returning near to his peak.

Twisted Plot historical data/form

Twisted Plot showed considerable potential last summer but has been off a long time so is reluctantly passed over in favour of POSTERIZE, who has been threatening to break through and the application of blinkers could work the oracle. Satchel Paige and Sidepocket Action are others to consider.

A Walk In The Park historical data/form

Space Talk has acclimatised much better than fellow British export Querelle, although she was behind PETER'S KITTEN when they took minor honours over track and trip last month, and John Sadler's filly is fancied to confirm her superiority. Don't Blame Judy doesn't know how to run a bad race, and A Walk In The Park could be a factor if fit enough to do herself justice.

Synthesis historical data/form

MUCHO GUSTO has a couple of Grade 3 victories either side of an honourable second in the Los Alamitos Futurity to Kentucky Derby fourth Improbable, and he has since made the frame in the Sunland Derby. He should prove too strong for Sparky Ville, who was third behind him at Del Mar last year but was a good winner of a Grade 2 on his penultimate appearance. Vantastic may beat Principe Carlo to third.
