MARKSBURY needed only to be pushed out to score over C&D last time and, given she's dropping down a grade today, Mark Brisbourne's mare is taken to follow up. Just Timmy Marcus usually runs his race at this track but his losing run stretches back over three years now though Forever Hope finished runner-up here last month and could figure again with a similar run. This Ones For Eddy and Fortunate Bid are both out of sorts but the C&D winners could get involved if either of them feels like making the effort.
