8: Highly Creative (Lopez, Rarick) 119/8-1

MISS MAC MAC (2) broke slowly in her two-year-old debut last fall before rushing up into contention and tiring late. With a clean break, she may be the one to catch. ALLOTROPE (4) cuts back in distance after trying a mile at Hawthorne. Could be closing late. HIGHLY CREATIVE (8) was bet down in her debut at Prairie Meadows two weeks ago after posting fast workouts but didn't run a step. Expecting an improved effort today.

SILVER DASH (2) won two of the last three at Turf Paradise. This veteran is in good form and he likes the local strip. ROSES BY LIAM (12) cuts back in distance after two longer efforts at Tampa Bay including a maiden score. Might benefit returning to state-breds. HAPPY HOUR BOBBY (9) has great early speed and could shake loose but finishing strong has been an issue.
