Race 78-4-3-8#8 Juggler (3-1): Has made last several starts in New York and was in the G3 Bay Shore two starts back but was outclassed. Repeat of last should make him very competitive today. 
#4 Smokey White (7-2): Been away for a month but was third in the same race last out. Has the speed to earn a major share. 
#3 Downtownchalybrown (4-1): Was outclassed last out in the Danzig Stakes but fits well with these if you forgive his last. If he gets the trip, chance to upset.
#6 Black Light (6-1): Goes turf to dirt and has been competitive with these earlier in the year. He is another one who needs the trip for a share.
Race 96-8-5-1#6 Aegean Sea (7-2): Won state-bred allowance race 2 starts back by 11 lengths .Repeat of that makes her very competitive to take it gate to wire.
#8 Peach Perfect (9-2): Was a solid second last out with same as today for top trainer John Servis. 
#5 St.Maarten Girl (5-1): Broke her maiden easily last out at Belmont Park. If she can be rated, she gets a share with these. Distance seems to help her. Chance to upset in a competitive race.
# 4 Marianna Queen  (6-1): Beat cheaper last out easily and looks to make it three in a row .If she gets involved early, she has the ability to get a share
