2-Awesome Taylor (2-1)
Juvenile filly is a maiden tackling winners, but she earned a speed figure in her debut when a close runner-up that far exceeds the competition in this starter optional claimer for juvenile fillies. The P. Miller-trained daughter of Classic Empire switches to I. Ortiz, Jr. and should improve a ton with that race under her belt and today’s extra furlong to work with. There’s value here at 2-1 on the morning line if you can get it.

1-Awake At Midnyte (10-1)
Was a visually pleasing winner in her debut sprinting on dirt at Santa Anita last month and today moves into stakes competition, stretches out to a mile, and switches to grass. She appears to be a decent sort of filly but certainly will have to be in order to take this much more difficult task in stride. A good-moving, athletic daughter of Nyquist, the D. O’Neill-trained juvenile could inherit the role as the controlling speed from her favorable rail post position and given that type of trip could take this field a very long way.
