Given his pedigree, better would have been expected of SNOQUALMIE CHIEF this year but he has a chance to start making up for lost time in this having led at the trip over 1m4f here last time. Admirals Walk has shown ability over a mile and should be thereabouts if lasting home but Lucky Mountain and Special Report need to bounce back from modest recent efforts. None of the others have shown a great deal so far.
