Golden Mischief arrives with a ton of confidence and should be a factor from the rail. Gerard Melancon has been tabbed to ride the tepid morning line favorite.
Caroline Test 4-1 - has placed three of four career starts for trainer Ben Colebrook - one win and two runner-up finishes. Last time out was her only off-the-board finish - a fourth in the G1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland October 7.

Caroline Test has been competitive every time out and has been knocking on the door of her first stakes score. Jockey Julien Leparoux will try to accomplish that goal on the second betting choice from post 3 Saturday.
