Win Candidates 7-8-10-5 Rating 2 stars

#7 Tizzarunner-came off a three month layoff and rallied to miss by just a neck. He runs for 31% winning Maker, gets a rider upgrade to I.Oritz and will prove tough to hold off.

#8 Heiroglyphics-has been at the top of his game while winning 4 of his last 6 and was claimed last out. New trainer is hitting at 25% with his new claims in their first start and this gelding loves this course winning 3 of his 6 starts here.

#10 Sharp Prospect-came off a 13 month layoff last out and drew off to get the money. He has a good work here, gets Saez and should be close from the start.

#3 Morocco-was claimed two stars back while missing by just a length for 50k at Gulfstream. New connections moved him up to a tougher spot last out and he showed speed before finishing 7th beaten 7 lengths. He drops down to 25k and that will help his chances.

Win Candidates 8-4-2-3 Rating 2 stars

#8 Touch of Class-switched to the turf for her second start after being rained off in her debut and ran a good race to finish third beaten only 2 ½ lengths while breaking from the #11 post. Trainer Flint has hit with 2 of his 5 starters here and looks to make it 3 for 6 with this one.

#4 Be Like Water-finished just ¾ of a length behind our top pick last out while going 5 wide. He gets a rider switch today and is the one to beat.

#2 Sentimental Cross-fast filly opened up a two length lead last out but had to settle for third beaten a length and a half. She is making her third start today off a long layoff and will be ready for his best.

#3 Sentimental Cross-runs for trainer Mott who is hitting at a big 44% here (4 of 9). She finished a few lengths behind our top pick last out but will be a good price and could run into the payoffs.

Win Candidates 8-2-7-6 Rating 2 stars

#8 Brennan’s War-rallied to finish 3rd in his debut last out while going 5 wide. Trainer Kimmel is hitting at a solid 18% with his maidens in their second start and there appears to be enough early speed in here to set this one up to come running late at a price. He has two good works here and all systems are go.

#2 Pivotal Run-came off a 9 month layoff last out and showed speed before tiring late to finish 6th beaten 5 ¾ lengths while being claimed. New trainer Weaver is hitting at a huge 40% with his new claims in their first start, this one needed his last race and has a good second over this course in his only start here.

#7 High Tone-came off a 10 month layoff last out, fought every step of the way for the lead but came up a neck short in second. He is coming off another layoff but runs well fresh and may prove to be the speed of the speed.

#6 Noble Conquest-rallied to finish 4th last out beaten 3 ½ lengths on the turf at Belmont. He has a work here and could run into the payoffs at a decent price.
