Race 81-2-7-3#1 Alfatei (4-1): Excuse his last, as he was unruly in the gate and got away last. He ran a huge race to be third, only beaten three lengths. Can take it gate to wire if he breaks well. Trainer Mike Pino is on a bit of a hot streak.
#2 Derby House (7-2): Looking to make it five in a row and just needs the trip. Moving up the ladder for trainer Penny Pearce, who is running at a 27% strike rate.
#7 Davidic Line (9-2): Going from a sprint to a route. Has the speed to lead throughout for top trainer Jamie Ness. 
#3 Midnightcharly (8-1): Another Ness runner who is making his second start off the claim. Was second last and can earn a share. 
Race 105-6-2-8#5 Golden Tabby (3-1): Was second in the New Start Stakes at Penn National last time. With the class drop, she should be able to wire this field.
#6 Princess Cupid (5-1): Won last with cheaper. She will rate off top pick and can earn a major share for top barn.
#2 Six o’Clock Sarah (4-1): She is looking to make it three in a row. Defeated older in a state-bred allowance in last and has the speed to go gate to wire. Well spotted by trainer Jamie Ness. 
#8 Burano (6-1): She was second to a runaway winner in the same race last time, albeit back in January. She can lay off the pace and get a share for top trainer John Servis.
