Mottley Crewe usually runs his race here and had Sir Geoffrey, West Coast Dream and Cadeaux Pearl behind over C&D in January. The latter had previously beaten subsequent C&D winner Ghostwing at this track, while Six Wives has scored twice over track and trip and had a below-par MONSIEUR JAMIE behind when third here in January. However, John Jenkins' charge had a terrific record here before that and gets another chance in a wide-open sprint to add to his four previous victories over C&D.
