THE KAHN struck over an extended mile here before finding 7f too sharp. He still did some good late work to make the frame and can regain the winning thread. Gran Greyfrost has been in fine form at Gulfstream and is a big threat, as is Meilleur if he can put his latest 7f no-show behind him.
Mr. Kisses can be relied upon to run his race but he bumps into some returning rivals who might be a little bit better than him. High Five Cotton and ONE LUCKY STEP both go particularly well at this venue, but Mary Bennett’s veteran would appear to be better suited to this trip so he gets the nod.

Sense A Million has been plying her trade in better company than this and could be a player here, while Silver Nina placed twice on the main track before her desperate effort on turf last time. LA WAPA gets the vote, though, as she ran a cracker to finish second over slightly shorter here latest and could build on that run.
Yei Yei and Awesome Romeo both have some decent form in this grade to their names and could go well, while Row The Boat won his maiden narrowly last time though he was behind Molokai Night two starts ago. RELISHMENT is preferred, though, as he has been holding his own in much more valuable contests in recent outings and can flourish now dropped in class.
Rough Night did the job well from the front last time and has claims, while Rudiger got up late to score here latest and will benefit if the early pace is too hot. Both are stepping up in class for this, though, unlike LAST PROMISE, who ran a solid race in allowance company last time and had previously won a more valuable claimer two starts ago
MAIDU posted her best effort to date when finishing a neck second over an extended mile here in January and she looks to have been found the ideal opportunity to shed the maiden tag. Upper Charlize Ds and Grandmary look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours.
ZAINO BOYZ was beaten just over two lengths when finishing fourth in a 100k event over this trip at Oaklawn Park last month and he could prove difficult to beat if running to that level here. Tomato Bill is entitled to improve on his comeback effort at Gulfstream Park last month and looks next best ahead of Silverly Enough.
Amangalla would not have to be anything special to make a winning debut and any market support would be interesting while Glacier Park has improved with every outing and enters calculations. However, JANGADA has caught the eye in finishing fifth on his last two outings and could prove the answer with his sights lowered.
