Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Warrawee Ubeaut-Very consistent filly is sharp and draws inside, looks like a major player again.
4-Trillions Hanover-Callahan is between the pipes and that helps the price, worth a swing at 8-1 in the ML.
7-Zero Tolerence-1st & 2nd in 2 starts here, had an interesting trip at PcD but was flying late, D. Miller's choice.
3-Millies Possession-Impressive win in last when off almost a month, a perfect 6 for 6, using but will look to beat.
4-Asiago-Nice try from the outside and could be tighter tonight, will respect chances but will need a top try.
6-The Ice Dutchess-2nd start off a sick scratch, bankroll is >$450k and Gingras can work a trip.
7-Starita-Won from this post last week, looks for 3rd straight, has been very sharp and best to not overlook.
2-Stag Party-0-6 this year but Coleman trainee has earning of >$500k, 1st start at Big M but should be tough.
6-Another Daily Copy-Drops into a better spot, may try to get on the engine and not look back.
7-On Duty-Steps-up off a sharp win from the 8-hole, went 54.1 the last half and could be posing again.
8-Sweet Rock-Dunn steers and may blast out, twice beaten chalk is a threat and price should be better tonight.
3-Stonedust-Does best work when racing close to or on the lead and shouldn't have much trouble getting there.
4-Backstreet Lawyer-Drops into a better spot and D. Miller steers, could be sitting on a big try at 8-1 in the ML.
