SOMEBODY wasn't at his best at Belmont in May, but looked to be showing promise when scoring at Aqueduct previously and could bounce back. Mission Statement got off the mark in style when last seen, while Business Cycle could improve for the powerful Chad Brown yard.

Point Of Honor historical data/form

GUARANA has made a huge impact in two career starts as she stepped up from maiden company to a Grade 1 and dominated a competitive field. Chad Brown's filly can maintain her unbeaten record over Point Of Honor, a Grade 2 winner on her latest start, and Gulfstream Oaks heroine Champagne Anyone.

Spice Road historical data/form

SPICE ROAD is the only member of the field with winning experience, when first past the post before being placed second at Belmont last time, and he can make amends on this occasion. Scars Are Cool and Per Capita complete the shortlist in what appears a competitive maiden on paper.
