Catch a Glimpse 8-5 - Canadian Sovereign Award winner for 2015 Horse of the Year, Champion Grass Mare and Champion 2 Year Old Filly has eight wins (all on turf - seven graded stakes) in nine career starts for trainer Mark Casse and enters on the heels of a terrific eight race win streak - The Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational last time out July 9, the Grade 1 Penn Mile by 2 1/4 lengths in gate-to-wire fashion against the boys June 4, the Grade 3 Edgewood Stakes at Churchill Downs May 6, the Grade 3 Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland April 14, the Grade 3 Herecomesthebride Stakes at Gulfstream February 27, on the biggest stage - the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, by five lengths in the Grade 2 Natalma Stakes at Woodbine September 12 and an Allowance score in August on that same track. Catch a Glimpse has been on fire and will be after her eighth straight graded stakes score Saturday. Florent Geroux will be in the irons of the obvious favorite looking to keep an uber-impressive streak from gate 2.
Time and Motion 3-1 - has seven career starts for trainer James Toner with three wins, a second and a third place finish. She enters off a good second behind Catch a Glimpse in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational July 9 after a nice three race win streak - the listed Wonder Again Stakes June 5, the minor Memories Of Silver Stakes April 24 and a MSW at Gulfstream in March. The streak followed a couple of OK results in graded stakes action - a fifth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and a third in the Grade 3 Miss Grillo Stakes in September.

Elysea's World 4-1 - Irish bred Chad Brown trained filly has won two of four career starts. Last time out was a respectable second in the Grade 3 Lake George Stakes here July 22 which followed a rather successful step into stakes company - a sixth in the minor $200,000 Wonder Again Stakes at Belmont Park June 5, an Allowance Optional Claiming score in May on that track and a maiden score at first asking - overseas last June. Elysea's World was competitive last time out and will he after her first stakes score from post 5 Sunday. Javier Castellano has been tabbed to ride the morning line third choice from post 5.
Diamond Fields 6-1 - Irish bred Tommy Stack trained filly has a win and four runner-up finishes in nine career starts. She made her North American debut last time out and finished an unlucky eighth after her saddle slipped in the Grade 2 Lake George Stakes on this track. At home she had a second in the Sandringham Handicap at Ascot June 15, a fourth in the Group 3 TRM Ballyogan Stakes June 4 and another pair of seconds in races this past spring including the Coolmore Stud and Power Stakes in May. Diamond Field had been competitive before last time out and will be after a strong bounce back from the outside post 7. Junior Alvarado gets the call.
My Impression 8-1 - Shug McGaughey trained filly has won three of her five career starts - the best of which came last time out in the minor Christiana Stakes at Delaware Park July 6. Before that was a fifth in the minor Memories of Silver Stakes at Aqueduct in April and two straight wins this past winter. My Impression looked awfully good last time out and looks ready for her graded stakes debut. Jose Ortiz will be in the saddle from gate 6.
Pricedtoperfection 10-1 - Chad Brown trained filly has placed in six of eight career starts - two wins, two seconds and two third place finishes. She finished ninth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and has been OK since - a fourth last time out in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational July 9, a second in the listed Penn Oaks with a career best 85 Beyer Speed Figure June 4. a third behind Time and Motion in the minor Memories Of Silver Stakes at Aqueduct in April, a nice win in the Grade 3 Sweetest Chant Stakes January 30 and a second in the minor Ginger Brew Stakes four weeks earlier - the last two at Gulfstream Park. Pricedtoperfection, outside of one race has been a factor every time out and will be out for her first Grade 1 score from gate 4. Irad Ortiz rides.
Outsider Art 15-1 - won her first two career starts for trainer Jonathan Sheppard and has six starts since - she has five third place finishes in those starts including last time out in the Grade 2 Lake George Stakes at Saratoga July 22. Before that was another third in the minor Christiana Stakes at Delaware Park July 6, another third in the minor Penn Oaks, an ugly twelfth in the Grade 3 Edgewood Stakes at Churchill Downs in May and consecutive thirds in graded stakes action - the Grade 3 Appalachian Stakes in April and the Grade 3 Jessamine Stakes in October.
