3/1 morning line favorite, Valid, will break from the rail in the mile and 70 yard event for trainer Marcus Vitali after a second-place finish in the Majestic Light Stakes May 23 at Monmouth. Valid, a 5 year-old gelding has won 8 of 27 career starts for earnings of $554,107 and posted a pair of bullet workouts in preparation for the start, capped by a four-furlong move in 47 seconds flat June 22 – the fastest of 36 works at the distance. Jockey Tammy Piermarini will be aboard.

Classy old pro available at a price

At 8/1, the classy six year-old gelding, Old Time Hockey, figures to be a generous price given his recent form. The Thomas Proctor earned his sixth career win in start number 30 last out, winning the Tampa Turf Classic Stakes April 4. That effort followed a pair of second –place finishes in the March 7 Challenger Stakes and January 24 Grade 3 Tampa Bay Stakes. Old Time Hockey will break from post 13 under the command of jockey Ronald Allen Jr.

Lucky Lotto a dubious second choice 

Despite a resume lacking notable stakes experience, Lucky Lotto is the 4/1 second choice for trainer Edward Barker. The seven year-old was competitive in a pair of Belmont Park allowance races, finishing third on April 29 and second on May 29. Lucky Lotto has won 8 of 32 career starts for earnings of $334,713. Angel Cruz gets the mount breaking from post four.
