Excuses Begone historical data/form

Raneem and Crystal Lake have crucial experience, but it could be newcomers who come to the fore here, with the nod going to Bob Baffert's $400,000 buy BOWL OF SOUP. Excuses Begone is another who cost plenty, while Karmically can't be completely ruled out.

Christy Jackson and Chasin Lucas have respectable form and a repeat of their best would give them leading claims here.

Causeforcommotion historical data/form

VASILIKA has won eight of her last nine and landed her tenth success at this venue when scoring in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine Stakes last time. Jerry Hollendorfer's five-year-old could take plenty of beating, but Rymska, Ollie's Candy and recent Grade 3 winners Elysea's World and Causeforcommotion should at least give her a run for her money.
