Top pick: #1 (MAMA QUATORZE) (9-2) - She's part of a Randy Russell trained entry with #1a-HEY BOO BOO, and they have separate riders listed, so it's likely both will run. Grey mare moves back up in class after finishing a pace setting second last out racing for a $16K tag. That was her best overall since July of 2013, and she's the top pick.

2nd pick: #3 (Complete Game) (3-1) - Freshened up since early June, daughter of "Afleet Alex" is dropping in class and shortening up in distance. Working bullets at Fair Hill for her return and is a strong win candidate.

3rd pick: #5 (Why Why Wonder) (12-1) - Longshot has some early speed and is another that's dropping down in class. She's racing back into shape following her return from an 11-month layoff, and she showed a bit of life in her latest.

4th pick: #4 (Sat Nav) (4-1) - Lightly raced filly has no early speed, but has made up good ground in her last pair going longer on the grass. She's racing off a pair of layoffs and has a new trainer for this attempt (Tony Farrior). Stretch threat if ready.
