#5 ESPOOF missed as the favorite in his last race but that was a non-conditioned claimer and now he gets in with N2Y for his 3rd start off of a 6 month layoff. #7 PREMIER DANCE hasn’t run since February and has no wins on the year, but has been working well firing bullets in the morning for trainer Cody Autrey. #11 SMOKE WARNING gets into a claiming race with conditions for the first time this year and although this will be his 5th consecutive class drop, he fits in this field off of his last couple of 4th place finishes at CD against tougher.
