Takeover Target, one of three horses in the race for trainer Chad Brown, has been tabbed as the favorite at odds of 8-5 on the morning line. A bay son of Harlan’s Holiday, he has won three of his five starts and notched the first graded stakes win of his career last time out in the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame Stakes (G2) at Saratoga. He will have jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. in the irons and they are scheduled to break from post position three.

Stakes debut for Go Around after second win

Second choice at 7-2 on the morning line is Go Around for trainer Bill Mott. A dark bay son of Medaglia d’Oro, he is a homebred for Peter Vegso and has won two of his four starts. He will be stepping up to stakes competition after winning an allowance race at Saratoga last time out by 3 ¾ lengths as the favorite over eleven rivals. Jose Lezcano will be back aboard and they will break from post position five.

World Approval trying to rebound after flat race

Also in the field at morning line odds of 5-1 is World Approval for trainer Mark Casse. Bred and owned by Live Oak Plantation, the gray son of Northern Afleet has been on the board in five of his eight starts and is a three-time winner. After winning the American Derby (G3) at Arlington, he finished fourth in the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame Stakes (G2) and will try to rebound with Joel Rosario aboard from post seven.
