Back on the Polytrack for the last three races on today's card and KIPCHAK can take the first of those. He won off a higher mark over C&D last year and his latest second over 7f on the turf here suggests he's ready to strike again. Clearing House won twice here in March but looks too high in the weights now and Lopinot can reverse earlier running, while Kai Mook looks to have strong claims judged on her recent efforts at Kempton and Surwaki could figure if retaining his ability on his return from over two years off the track.
