Lewis Bay 6-5 - Chad Brown trained filly has placed seven of eight career starts - three wins, three runner-ups and a third place finishes. Last time out was her only off-the-board finish - a fourth in the G1 Test Stakes at Saratoga August 6 which followed a decent second after stumbling at the start in the G1 Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park July 2, a respectable third in the G1 Kentucky Oaks May 6, a good win in the G2 Gazelle Stakes at Aqueduct April 9, a second place finish behind Cathryn Sophia in the G2 Davona Dale Stakes at Gulfstream in February, a win in the G2 Demoiselle Stakes at Aqueduct in November and a maiden score in October. Lewis Bay has been in the mix every time out and is expected to be again Saturday as she tries to bounce back from an uncharacteristic fourth. Irad Ortiz has been tabbed to ride the morning line favorite from gate 2.
Eskenformoney 4-1 - has 18 career starts for trainer Todd Pletcher with three wins, five seconds and two third place finishes. She has been OK lately - a fourth last time out in the minor Summer Colony Stakes at Saratoga August 22 followed a respectable second in the G3 Molly Pitcher Stakes at Monmouth Park July 31, a third in the minor Lady's Secret Stakes on that track July 4 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score here in May. Other graded stakes results all came in 2015 - a fourth in the G1 Cotillion, a decent second in the G3 Monmouth Oaks, a fifth in the G1 Mother Goose, a tenth in the G1 Kentucky Oaks , a second in the G2 Gulfstream Park Oaks and a third in the G2 Devona Dale Stakes included. She looks for her first ever graded stakes score in decent form with Javier Castellano aboard the second betting choice from gate 6.

Before that was a good win in the minor Summer Colony Stakes at Saratoga August 22, a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming on that track July 27 and a seventh a win and a third respectively in a trio of Allowance races on this track. She tries for her first graded stakes win and second stakes score in three starts Saturday. Joel Rosario has the mount from post 5.

She enters off an OK third in the G3 Locust Grove Stakes at Churchill Downs September 17, a terrific win in the G3 Groupie Doll Stakes at Ellis Park August 6 and another victory in the minor Iowa Distaff at Prairie Meadow July 1.

Flora Dora 10-1 - finished second in the G3 Tempted Stakes at Aqueduct November 4 but has placed in just three of eight starts since.

Linda Mimi 15-1 - lightly raced Gustavo Delgado trained filly has two wins, a second and three third place finishes in seven career starts. She enters on the heels of consecutive thirds - an Allowance Optional Claiming last time out on this track September 30 and the minor Princess of Sylmar Stakes at Parx September 3.
