Livinit historical data/form

Difficult to be too confident about any of these, but PRO LONG struck the crossbar over 6f here and probably wouldn't need to improve much to go one better. Off The Wagon drops in class and is respected, while One Fine Romance can build on his opening fourth behind the selection.

Has won eight races from 1m to 1m 6f. A winner at 2-1 at Zia Park over 1m 4f on his latest outing in December last year, beating One Stop Shop by 8l. Looks a big enough price considering the manner of that last-start success.

L. A. Tower historical data/form

ONE STOP SHOP had Sky Defence (second) and Iron Britches (third) behind when scoring easily over 1m here three weeks ago and he might be able to follow up, although the other pair shouldn't be taken lightly. Wilmas Irish Rover drops in grade and has his chance, with L. A. Tower a live outsider.

Diabolical Turn historical data/form

SURF N DELMAR and Jewel Of Navarone finished second and third respectively in a 6f contest here three weeks ago and that pair could fight it out for major honours today, with the former taken to confirm his superiority. Shio is a respected debutant.
