#1 HARVEY’S LIL GOIL (3-1) desires each little bit of this 9 furlong distance. She romped at this distance within the Busanda on filth Feb. 2 and was a part of my Kentucky Oaks checklist at the moment. They switched gears and tried her on turf within the Remorse (G3) at a mile and an eighth June 27, and she or he tracked the tempo from an outer submit and gamely scored by a neck beneath Saturday’s rider Martin Garcia. She was again on filth and completed third within the Alabama (G1), and that was hardly a foul effort behind subsequent Preakness (G1) winner Swiss Skydiver. She returned to turf for the Dueling Grounds Oaks and stalked exterior, took over, and was nailed late because the chalk in that Sept. 10 affair at a mile and 5 sixteenths. She lands the comfortable rail and might go straight to the entrance or make the primary run and get a soar on the closers.
#4 Magic Angle (5-2) seemed robust visually in a lower than stellar renewal of the Belmont Oaks (G1) Sept. 19. She additionally gained a G3 in France at this distance earlier this yr.
#8 California Kook (12-1) bought no tempo assist in an excellent 4th vs. the boys within the Del Mar Derby (G1) Sept. 6. The late runner positioned twice in turf stakes races at this distance and may have the ability to boost the exotics if the tempo heats up a bit.
#6 Hendy Woods (10-1) has not achieved a lot incorrect on turf, and I actually like her versatility. She stalked and scored in her first two turf routes at Truthful Grounds, and was frolicked to dry from submit 13 within the Remorse June 27. She bounced again from off the tempo on yielding floor within the Indiana Grand Stakes, and stalked and was clearly second finest behind Sharing within the Edgewood (G2) final time. She handles any turf situation however all of her good efforts have been at one mile.
