From post #3 is Beep Beep. He is an up and comer with an impressive debut win at Churchill Downs.
Along the rail at post #1 is Midnight Bourbon.He was second at the Iroquois Stakes and third at the Champagne Stakes in his last race. He has speed and fits into this group very well.
Post #4 is Proxy who has two consecutive wins and both were with ease. A definite chance to win.
Arabian Prince from the @2 spot is coming off a third place at the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes. Likely to finish in some money.
