FIFTH RACE: 1. Danette, 2. Popover, 3. Cool Moves. LONG SHOT: Larking.

This maiden DANETTE (3-1) has run in three straight Grade I races so now she is back with her friends and would appear to hold a clear class advantage for trainer Keith Desormeaux and his brother, jockey Kent Desormeaux.

MEGA HEAT (4-1), an 8-year-old, has won four times in nine tries on this turf course and he is 6-of-8 at this distance. Jockey Corey Nakatani knows him well and trainer Peter Eurton is 26% with allowance horses.
