Onward proved a disappointment last time, but he was part of a contested early pace, and perhaps needed the run following a three-month layoff. In first-time blinkers, he is worth another chance in a race that doesn’t have a great deal of depth to it.

Classy Lynn has had excuses in defeat on her last two starts and this return to the same course and distance (C&D) as her wide-margin win in February seems sure to show her in a better light. Sundrenched appeals most of the remainder, while Classy of Course deserves respect as well.
Bueno Bueno Bueno came from just off a fast pace to grab a narrow win over shorter here last time and should get another good trip just in behind the main speed this time. Fortlite should find the return to this trip a good move and is likely to be thereabouts as well. Credit Cycle shouldn’t be far away either.
Town Champ has been at the top of his game so far this year at Oaklawn and is taken to continue in a similar vein on his first start for a new barn at Will Rogers. Minister of Soul also comes here in good form and can come out best of the remainder. Lawton is another that merits a closer.
Shesomajestic was below form when last seen at Sunland in March but has now joined a barn that has been in good form with its handful of runners at this track. Girls a Bullet has run well to be placed on her last two outings and looks the biggest threat, while Pretty Britches may be best of the rest.
Dirty Dixie Road has been performing consistently of late and should go well again for a trainer that has been in fine form recently. You’re the Reason is another that seems sure to go well, while Memories Galore also makes the shortlist.
