#11 Wild Swava is even money on the morning line. She is looking for a hat trick coming out of Gulfstream. She is a solid performer. #2 War of Ages is also looking for a hat trick with 2 wins in 2 starts this year. Her form suggests she will be a game competitor. #7 Cherishd Obsession also looking for hat trick, won in gate to wire fashion last time. First off the claim for her and she could hold on for part.
