No 2 Andthewinneris (5-1) was strong on pace in his grass sprint arc at Keeneland on April 28, and the second was the next winner. He narrowly missed second place by a nose in the Bashford Manor clay on July 4, and Gulfport dominated that race and came back to clinch the place in the Saratoga (G2) special. He reconnects with his winning driver Flavien Prat and Wayne Catalano has decent stats with his first road starts.

The Battle of Normandy No. 1 (3-1) stormed away from the outside post and cleared in his first slow early/fast win at this course and distance on August 6. Shug McGaughey’s $500,000 City of Light colt should save all the ground behind speed.

No. 8 Lachaise (5-1) ran slow fractions before leaping into the lane on his winning debut over the course and distance against high foes in New York on August 4. Jorge Abreu has decent stats with his graduates trying first-time winners, and he’ll likely keep pace under new driver Jose Ortiz.

Number 9 Our Dream Rye’d (4-1) showed marked improvement stretching and changing surfaces on July 30, and he got plenty of pace help in the 21-1 upset. He will try to get involved late.

No. 11 Determined (6-1) needs a defection to make the equally eligible roster. He lay down on the grass and rallied for the spot in an improved effort for the second time on July 30.
