Speakerit has been highly tried in two starts since breaking his maiden, and this drop into $10k claiming company looks just the right move to get him back on track. Good Solution is also likely to be on the premises, while Snow Lion can’t be ignored either.

Idle Time shaped with plenty of promise when runner-up over course and distance in March and that form was given a boost when the winner went in again next time. Granted normal improvement, Christophe Clement’s charge should be tough to deny at the second attempt. Felix the Fox looks the biggest threat and can emerge best of the rest.
Seven and Seven is dropping markedly in class in this maiden claimer and has attracted the talents of top jockey Luis Saez. His recent workouts have been fairly sharp and he should show much improved form in this softer company. Rags for Britches and Jeeker Joe should also give good accounts.
Hidden Facts drops out of stakes company back into the optional claiming ranks and now has top jockey Irad Ortiz taking over in the saddle. She has plenty of speed and should be within striking distance of the leaders on the run for home. Lady Grace is on a two-race winning streak and is also likely to be on the premises.
Ocean Fire has yet to get off the mark after eight starts but this is the first time she has dropped into maiden claiming company and it will be disappointing if she can’t finally break her duck. Noble Alma may be the one for the forecast, while Summer Shore is another who demands a closer look.
