Defiant Honor 10-1
Has four career starts for trainer James Toner with two wins and a second-place finish.

Fizzy Friday 20-1
British bred Ignacio Correas trained filly has two wins and a second-place finish in four career starts. She enters off a less-than-spectacular fifth in her stakes debut - a fifth in the G3 Regret Stakes at Churchill Downs June 17 which followed a second in an Allowance on that track May 29 and two wins at home to start her career. Frizzy Friday looked a tad out of place last time out but will be out to make a statement Friday from gate 2. Jose Lezcano rides.
