Man o' Bear - Reade Baker trained colt finally broke maiden last time out by 2 1/4 lengths September 22 on this track in his first try around two turns after a pair of decent thirds in minor stakes races to start his career - the Simcoe Stakes August 28 and the Vandal Stakes August 11. He starts from post 6 with Emma-Jayne Wilson back aboard.
Asserting Bear - Reade Baker trained colt finished a disappointing eighth after pressing the pace last time out in the Grade 2 Summer Stakes here September 14 after a MSW score at 34-1 odds August 24 and a ninth in a MSW August 4. James McAleney takes the return call from post 13 on Asserting Bear, who races without blinkers for the first time.
Go Bro - finished sixth in his debut in a MSW on this track August 18 and stepped up in his only other career start when he finished a very good second to the impressive My Conquestadory in the Grade 2 Summer Stakes here September 14. He is one of only a few in the field that has raced in graded stakes company and should challenge Sunday. Tyler Pizarro gets the mount from post 5.
Matador - Mark Casse trained colt most recently finished third behind Go Bro in the Grade 2 Summer Stakes here September 14 after a fourth in his debut - the minor Vandal Stakes on this track August 11. He was very competitive in the Summer Stakes and is expected to be so Sunday as well.
